Kalypso, a professional services firm helping clients discover, create, make and sell better products with digital, opened the doors to Bridgetown Innovation Studio last month in Portland, Oregon. Located in Portland’s Pearl District, the 15,000-square-foot studio provides collaboration spaces, showcases of the latest product development technology, and comprehensive services for clients in the consumer and life sciences industries.
“We saw a need in the market to provide a space for clients to show them what’s possible with new technologies and how to get there in this second industrial revolution we’re in – the digital revolution,” said George Young, CEO of Kalypso. “Bridgetown Innovation Studio is where we help our clients bridge the transition from a physical to a digital enterprise.”
Kalypso helps companies change the way they innovate and the products they bring to market using technologies such as IoT, machine learning and 3D. At Bridgetown Innovation Studio, the firm leverages its 15-year history of innovation to help companies build capabilities that deliver top and bottom-line results, such as digital product creation, smart connected products and operations, and advanced analytics.
“At Bridgetown, we’re helping clients fundamentally change how they discover, create, make and sell products,” said Sachin Misra, Kalypso partner and general manager at Bridgetown Innovation Studio. “This means being able to bring the entire innovation ecosystem of people, brands, suppliers, vendors and technologies together for our clients to uncover new opportunities and solve for the most difficult challenges they face.”
Portland was selected as the studio’s location given its close proximity to leading brands in the region, but more so for the city’s innovative, community-centric culture and talent base.
“Everywhere you look the people of Portland are pushing the boundaries of art, design, product and social responsibility to drive innovation,” said Young. “It’s the perfect home for bringing our Bridgetown vision to life.”
