Growth anchored in opportunity
“You can kill an IDEA... but you can’t kill an OPPORTUNITY!”
~ Pam Henderson

Where do you need support?
Corporate Innovation Strategy
Corporate innovation functions often struggle to integrate the innovation efforts across the organization or transition their own innovation into the businesses for We solve these challenges in our approach to using opportunity as the integrating force
Venture or Incubator Groups
As the designated growth engine of the company, you need to clarify:
- Where your efforts will take the organization in the long run
- An innovation strategy that articulates your focus and gets buy-in for adoption and commercialization of the outcomes
BU or Regional Innovation Strategy
Too often innovation does not have a seat at the strategy table in businesses, being relied on instead for addressing technical challenges and supporting the core. A clear vision and opportunity-based strategy that balances the core with larger growth opportunities empowers the innovation function to lead in growth decisions
