About

Inspire your audience.

Cars are already driving themselves, teenagers are building billion-dollar companies and pharmaceuticals are getting smarter. In the future we won’t be using cash anymore, we’ll be able to rent a body for a day and technology might make men able to get pregnant.

As an innovation agency, we always take a look into the future. If you’re organizing a conference or you want to get your team inspired, we’ll be glad to give you a taste of how innovation and intrapreneurship could have a positive impact on your business.

“The lecture was high on learning value and the examples and concepts discussed were highly realistic and intelligent. We are very happy with the level of interaction during the session. We would love to have BOI again sometime in the future!”
