Who is this guide for?

This guide is for anyone who wants to see an idea come to life in a short period of time and needs tools to make it happen. It is designed for everyone and anyone to use — from creative change makers who want to bring new products or services to market, to innovation managers steering a project at their organization.

It is packed with over 20 tools to take an idea through all the stages of development to make it as ready as it can be before launching.

We want to leverage the strengths of large organizations, and help them to build the new businesses that will shape our future. An accelerator could be the starting point for one of those businesses. You could be the driving force behind it.
