Qmarkets Teams up with Veteran Corporate Innovator to Boost European Presence

Professor Dr. Mark Harris, an internationally recognized innovator, entrepreneur, and founder of innova.ventures, and Qmarkets, the leading provider of idea management software, partner to leverage each other’s strengths and offer combined benefits to clients.

TEL AVIV, March 27th, 2018 – Professor Dr. Mark Harris and Qmarkets are joining forces to transform the way innovation is conceptualized, organized, strengthened, and realized at SME’s and larger corporations in Europe’s IT, mobile, communications, mechanical engineering, pharma, chemistry, and finance sectors.
