Open innovation intermediary

Open innovation intermediaries as described by Henry Chesbrough in his 2006 book Open Business Models are "companies that help other companies implement various facets of open innovation".[1] The presence of these firms enables other companies to explore the market for ideas without getting in over their heads, since the intermediaries can act as guides to help those other companies along the trail. There are different kinds of open innovation intermediaries, with some acting as agents (representing one side of a transaction) while others take on the role of brokers or market-makers.
