Starlab is a high-tech company active in Space & Neuroscience, with a big team of researchers who also perform in some cases the role of business development. This dual function allows the company to create some tools that can be monetized in order to continue with the research work. In the Neuroscience business unit, a helmet to detect brain activity has built. This element its being used as a marketing tool for companies to measure the acceptance of their products. In the Space business unit, a green-tech platform has been done, but the company has detected they need to include stakeholders and end-users into their process to create more solid and useful solutions.
