To keep abreast of and enable the Global Consumer Commerce Industry to anticipate future innovations, developments and trends (Technology based, Services based, Commercially based or Society based), IORMA provides an online Innovation Hub … researching, demonstrating  and commenting upon these developments. 

At IORMA we believe one of the best ways to prepare for the future is to try and live in it. We create a framework for tomorrow’s disruptive innovation to deliver consumer value today. But we understand that most of the time we are too busy coping with the here and now. Through our Innovation Hub we aim to help you keep ahead by offering curated content that:

  • shows you what is happening globally in the critical areas of new technology innovation
  • highlights selected start ups that are using these technologies today to disrupt markets and change consumer behaviour

Beyond this Innovation Hub, we offer:

  • Networking, introductions and deal flow for corporates, government bodies and experienced executives to invest in or work with the most exciting start ups
  • Growth services for start ups & scale ups, providing access to high quality funding, research grants, the right accelerator programmes, global markets, talent and needed support services from both within the IORMA community and those we rate outside it
