Help Us to Transform the SGS Digital Landscape

SGS wants to play a role in helping digital startups to develop new technology strategies that cut costs, improve ROI, boost revenue, and can be integrated within our existing business context.

To achieve this, our Digital and Innovation team will invest in and support companies that adopt or implement new technologies – such as software, applications, artificial intelligence and IoT platforms – to facilitate the digitization of manufacturing (Industry 4.0). We invite such companies to submit pitches for potential collaboration, investment or acquisition.
