Kris Poria- An Innovator Solving Challenge 

Entering a new field with the desire to dominate it? It is unavoidable to be completely knowledgeable about your sector, the things that are happening, the changes you can make, and everything you can do as an entrepreneur to solve problems.  

Wouldn’t it be simpler if you had a helping hand—more accurately, a guiding light—that illuminated your road to betterness? 

Here is a brief overview of the business before we speak with co-founder and CEO Kris Poria. 

Company Overview- 

The Early Birds Marketplace is a business-to-business (B2B) marketplace where early adopters and innovators (startups, scaleups, and mature) may trade value. A Minimum Viable Product (MVP) or product/solution listing allows innovators to set the price for each sale between US$ 500 and US$ 25,000.   

Early Adopters might look for and purchase innovations in their sector and core business operations based on the financial benefits they offer. Early Adopters have the ability to post Challenges in the market and ask Innovators for viable solutions. The market offers escrow capabilities to lower risk for both parties as well as feedback capabilities for both parties. 

Interview with Kris Poria- 

“Success is not a destination but a journey at personal, professional and spiritual level” 

Tell us about your company and what made you decide to create it. 

The co-founder of EarlyBirds, Kris Poria, noticed a gap in the market for large corporations to collaborate with start-ups that offered creative solutions. He recognised a platform was needed to bring the two together and make it possible for start-ups and early adopters to exchange value right away.  

Together, he and his co-founder and business partner Jeff Penrose founded EarlyBirds, a global platform and business model that brings tech innovators, start-ups, and independent specialists together to share information and skills and help firms scale up more quickly. 

Millions of enterprises all over the world receive assistance from EarlyBirds, which offers capability solutions within a reliable networking platform. The platform enables specialists to swiftly solve technical problems for early adopters by offering alternative solutions. The programmes, goods, and services available for innovation serve as a complement to this by letting emerging businesses see what the global market is doing. Last but not least, subject matter experts are welcomed on the platform to collaborate with clients to produce results that are business-focused. This enhances the innovation lifecycle and makes it possible for any products or services to be developed more quickly.  

What goods or services does the business prioritise? How do your services differ from those offered by competitors? 

  • Organisations are becoming self-learning organisations thanks to earlybirds by:  
  • Ongoing education in all corporate functions 
  • Overcome technological and business challenges quickly  
  • Examine changes in technology, procedures, and business models. 
  • Getting Rid of Evil Issues 

Using its platform and innovation programmes, the Challenger and the Explorer, the EarlyBirds Ecosystem (Innovators, Subject Matter Experts (SMES), and Early Adopters) helped provide the above. The Explorer programme offers continual innovation as a service to the entire enterprise, while the Challenger programme aims to address one commercial or technological challenge at a time. 

Over 600 businesses are currently registered on the EarlyBirds platform, which has over 100 SMEs and scouts over 3M worldwide innovators. 

EarlyBirds provides the market with two options: a self-service platform subscription that enables customers to search innovators for solutions or innovations to solve their problems, or SME-assisted programmes to provide a solution to any business or technical challenges or ongoing innovation as a service.
