We’re an international office specialized in business model innovation. We help corporate clients like eBay, P&G, J&J, and Volkswagen to innovate like startups, and to develop sustainable new revenue streams. Board of Innovation was founded by Nick De Mey and Philippe De Ridder. We have our home base in the heart of the creative city of Antwerp (Belgium), but we innovate with clients worldwide.
What we stand for
“It’s our goal to make corporates innovate
like startups to challenge the status quo.”
We strongly belief that most companies are in need of an entrepreneurial mindset to help them innovate. During our innovation projects we put a strong focus on injecting startup culture into the organization. We work for those companies that are challenged by big changes in their ecosystem, or those that want to make a dent in the universe themselves. Together we look for new opportunities for growth!
“We offer hands-on guidance & the guts
to design new offerings when looking for sustainable profit.”
We don’t just facilitate the process of innovation. Our team will bring own business ideas to the table. Our innovation tools help to copy business principles from one industry to the other. After intensive research we don’t just hand over a report. We like to get our hands dirty as co-entrepreneurs. Together we look for the most suited way to test your innovative business case in a real market context. A step that we like to call Business Prototyping.
Our team & culture
that think like designers
but speak business.”
Our team gathers so called T-shaped, entrepreneurial people who can combine Design thinking with Strategy and business analysis. Business model design is one of our key expertises in the team. Our mantra is to live and think 5 years ahead. This puts us in the perfect position to pull your corporate innovation team out of their comfort zone… straight into our world ;) On our Board of Innovation Facebook page you can take a look behind the scenes.
