Bruno Gutierres is Open Innovation Director at Alstom, a French multinational mobility company that manufactures high-speed trains, metros, monorails, and trams and delivers integrated turnkey systems. He leads the company’s Collaborative Innovation Program, which gives any Alstom employee the opportunity to submit and develop innovative ideas in startup mode, the Alstom Startup & Supplier Program, which facilitates collaborations with external ecosystems worldwide, as well as new Innovation Stations in Tel Aviv, Singapore and Stockholm that take advantage of Alstom’s strong presence in those ecosystems to set up collaborative projects on mobility with local partners.
Before joining Alstom in September 2019 Gutierres founded and ran the Airbus Bizlab, the first aerospace accelerator for startups and intrapreneurs. Prior to that, he worked for Air France Cargo for six years. His extensive knowledge of the air cargo market led him to Airbus where he initially created an oversized cargo service for the Beluga, a version of the standard A300-600 wide-body airliner modified to carry large cargo, before moving on to other innovation projects. Gutierres, who graduated from Toulouse Business School, started his career as an entrepreneur and successfully founded two companies. He recently spoke to The Innovator about open innovation.
