We are experienced in building successful & diverse e-Teams, partnerships, communities, and networks.

Every few years, the world is hit by a crisis: natural disasters, economic crises, and even pandemics. At the same time, every year a new discovery promises to heal a disease that had never been cured before, a tech solution to teach 700 million illiterate people how to read and finance women-led businesses.

Through our solutions, we empower people to change the world by creating more effective e-Teams. We are proud if they build the networks to protect them from tomorrow’s unpredictable future.

The Network IQ Methodology

Network IQ Wheel

Network IQ is a measurement of Network Intelligence.

We define this kind of intelligence as an ability to use social networking to innovate and grow. For example, you can use social networks to get market insights, share resources, or sell. But many people find it challenging.

The Network IQ Index is based on a combination of 7 skills: Network Strategy, Networking, Engagement, Empowerment, Digital Communication, Collaboration for Diversity, and Influence.

 I learnt quite a few things at Tataj Innovation! During my internship I learnt how to build interpersonal relations, develop a market entry strategy, do business development and work on fundamental business planning for start-up. 

Moreover, I also learnt a lot about market research. And foremost about innovation and network thinking, which is helping me now a lot when I work on innovation projects at Siemens. I know a lot how to get to the right resources.
