The Business behind the ideas

Ideas are good. Data is better. Strategy is king. The combination is unbeatable.

Together with our clients we let their business thrive, by finding strategic areas, market niches and developing solutions for current and future corporate innovation opportunities in global markets.

Sustainable new business through venture building

We design, validate and grow ventures with corporations by taking advantage of their existing assets. With our data-centric approach to innovation, we create the future backward strategy with our clients answering all those questions to find new growth.

The key to successful, sustainable growth is corporate venture building. It is the best addition to your innovation portfolio; it is long-term and low risk. We understand the harmful resistance to innovation the corporate world faces, as well as, the lack of access to resources the startup world may suffer. By combining the both, we create a win-win outcome and build strategic, future-proof corporate venture portfolios.

There are plenty of strategically relevant corporate innovation opportunities and there are structured methods to identify them actively.

The strategy phase solves challenges such as

  • How big is the corporate innovation gap and how can it be closed?
  • What are the core corporate innovation areas?
  • Where should you invest and why?
  • How can the strategy be executed?
  • Which aspects of governance must be customised to the organisation?

Our Process

The process of our strategy contains three phases and one goal: boosting your innovation to a level never seen before.

STRATEGY

A shortlist of high-potential ventures

We focus on your specific needs and your distinct set up. We set clear objectives with the executive team, aligning them with the company’s long term strategy. We extensively analyse each relevant sector to form a comprehensive investment thesis based on relevant market signals. The result: a shortlist of high-potential ventures.

SEED

Focusing on high customer satisfaction

Ventures often start as simple prototypes and develop into MVPs, serving hundreds of customers. If the venture can prove a high customer satisfaction and a positive economic outlook, we move it into the Growth Stage — otherwise, we kill it and build something better.

GROWTH

Your venture is ready to succeed

Now it is time to scale. With a feasible business model, we ramp up dedicated structures (founding team, funding, legal entity etc.) and appropriate tools (HR, Finance) and processes. At the end of this phase your venture is more than ready to succeed in the long run.
