Explorium HK was a collaboration hub empowering communities of innovation in supply chain, retail, and beyond, to co-create the future. With a heavy heart, we’re sad to say that we’ll be suspending the programs and operations of Explorium Hong Kong as of May 11th, 2021.
As an experiment in community-driven corporate innovation, Explorium HK served its purpose and now it’s time to take stock and iterate the ways to inform, inspire and facilitate creating new value. We’re proud of what we achieved together over the last two and a half years and are immensely grateful to you, our community of…
Community Spotlight | Founders @ Explorium Interview Series – Florian Gamper, Lineverge
Solving Complexity Through Tech
Supply chains are complex networks that can be notoriously inefficient. Just imagine having 50 companies of different sizes and sophistication spread around the globe all contributing to build one product. It’s very likely that they all have different ways of working, systems and reporting standards making communication and information exchange in the network slow and prone to errors. So, how do you make this network work better?
We caught up with Florian Gamper, one of our first Explorium Residents, to learn about how Linverge…

Today, to innovate is on the agenda of business owners and CEOs across industries and markets. Yet, innovating and cultivating a culture of innovation across organizations remains a formidable challenge.
While there’s no silver bullet when it comes to innovation, there are multiple ways-of-working, processes, and tools that can help organizations along their innovation journey. At Explorium Hong Kong, we created an Ecosystem Innovation Playbook to share what we, together with a group of innovation practitioners in our community, have learned about launching innovation teams and running innovation projects within organizations. We’re excited to share it with you.
It’s a new year 🌟 and what better way to kick it off than some out-of-the-box Explorium community project ideas?
Last month, we jammed with some of you around our collective hopes and aspirations for 2021. During the session we co-created three concepts that address opportunities presented by our present realities: connecting without physical events, speeding up climate action, and coping with socially-distanced work.
Check them out below and reach out to us at email@example.com if you’d like to learn more about our community jams.

Explorium’s preferred way of working is to do things in person — whether it’s a workshop, a salon, or demoing a new piece of tech, we believe doing things face-to-face brings out the best interactions. However, like many we’ve had to move online because of Covid-19. Enter Mural — a digital workspace that enables teams to collaborate visually (and to solve important problems).
While we had previously experimented with Mural (and Miro, a similar digital whiteboard service), we were by no means Pro users. That had to change rather quickly — now there’s not a day that passes without us…
