Guerrilla Club


Stop innovation theatre. Enable real intrapreneurs.

It’s not: innovation theatre.

Often we get requests to facilitate idea generation workshops with a pre-defined set of senior people. Often this is mere innovation theatre: half of the people are not really interested to be there, and no significant follow-up has been defined for ideas coming out of this workshop.  (Credits for this format: Bart Remmerie)

It’s about enabling intrinsically motivated employees to innovate.

The Guerrilla Club initiative is open for anyone to join within your organization; as long as you’re passionate about creating a new business idea. The club has a first budget that they can invest without approval. First make something, validate it, only then present it for approval and implement. Ready?
