about

Live (remote) sessions, 
tailored to your context

After running innovation programs with countless Fortune 500 companies for over a decade, we’ve developed a robust methodology that simplifies the complexity behind the business model design, lean startup, design thinking and innovation strategy.

Our trainings compile all of our experience combined with content tailored to your organization. We design custom courses that are interactive, hands-on learning experiences that can be designed as a stand-alone course or a larger transformation program. All our courses are geared towards direct business impact and are relevant for a broad spectrum of departments: product managers, marketing, leadership, new business developers, trainees, etc.

Our main principles

No capability building without business impact.
We leverages your key assets and frameworks rather than sticking to theory. Participants solve your companies’ challenges while they learn.

Open-source business model.
We believe in the sharing of knowledge, which is why
we provide all of our tools and content with your team
throughout the program.

Our programs grow over time. Feedback loops with both participants and sponsors insure the incorporation of continuous improvements to the learning modules. We drive results through collaboration!

Innovation means time, a superpowered team, and often a new way of working. Transformation is a marathon requiring practice, as well as blood, sweat, and tears.

A key factor in finishing this marathon is commitment from the top. Yes, that means from you as an executive. If you understand what your teams are going through, you can accelerate their growth by asking the right questions.

After a train-the-trainer session with us, your internal coaches will receive all the templates and tools we used during the program, as well as the different use cases for all the tools. You’ll also get tips on how to coach other people to use these techniques internally. They’ll be ready to tackle the typical pitfalls and the many questions people will have.
