your employees have a fantastic idea...
but now what?
Brainstorming sessions are exciting and energizing, but unless there’s a follow-through plan the outcomes of those sessions are wasted. Lack of readiness to take actions forward can lead to employee demotivation, wastage in time/effort, and opportunity cost. Too often, great ideas are expected to die right as they’re being born.
our innovation sprints and corporate incubators help you create a scaleable process that rapidly tests and validates new product or startup ideas
sprints to hackathons
Collaborative events designed to unite employees into cross-functional teams, empower them to explore problems that need solving, and build ideas to solve these problems. There are 3 types of Innovation Sprints that vary in terms of duration of the sprint, scope of the problems tackled, and solution fidelity.
With a mission to generate ideas on a specific opportunity, employees will gain visibility into relevant trends and successstories, walk through design thinking exercises, collaborate with intention, and create thoughtful ideas that can continued to be developed post-sprint.
A five-phase, highly facilitated process that uses design thinking to generate solutions to critical business challenges and opportunities. Design Sprints incorporate highly iterative learning through prototyping and testing often with real customers throughout the process.
Built for meaningful collaboration, tangible solution outcomes, employee engagement, and scalable to thousands of employees. This is coupled with a comprehensive learning curriculum to ensure employees have the skills and resources they need to execute on their ideas.
ideas ➜ mvp
We help provide a process and capability for big companies to turn high potential ideas into MVPs (minimum viable products). We have taken best practices from fast-growing startups and top global accelerator programs, and redesigned it for large corporate environments. We push ambitious clients to test, build, and iterate using modern technologies to bring a product to market as fast and intentionally as possible.
setting up a strong foundation
After understanding your organization, we help set up the infrastructure, process, timeline, requirements, and branding to reduce friction for innovation. A lot of upfront work is needed in order for teams to move forward swiftly and efficiently.
establishing a support ecosystem
Doing it alone is difficult, which is why we help establish an internal and external support ecosystem for the incubation process. This entails bringing together relevant technology or startup partners to leverage their technology and expertise and critical internal experts and advisors to democratize information.
providing modern methodologies
There’s a reason why nimble startups move fast, and it’s not simply because of a lack of bureaucracy and procedure - it’s because startups prioritize feedback and iteration. Bringing an MVP into the market, collecting customer feedback, and making improvements is one of the most important priorities for many startups. We apply and teach the latest design thinking, design sprint, and startup methodologies to help teams translate ideas into actions in order to find product/market fit, generate traction, and seize market share.
