We are a global network for innovators who are working to develop tech solutions for corporate challenges. We work with entrepreneurs to grow and transform business industries and ecosystems. We have more than a decade of experience accelerating startups and we work across sectors to drive a stronger future through collaborative innovation.
Through our partners and experts, we bring together some of the leading teams in innovation, industry knowledge, and leadership management to our promising startups. We have several locations across the United States, Canada, India and South Africa. While the majority of our accelerators are industry agnostic and early-stage, we also have strategic focus on high impact and emerging categories. 70% of our participants will launch a pilot product within a year.
The relationship between corporations and startups has changed dramatically since 2008 when we first launched our company. In fact, the number of corporate investments in startups tripled in just the last four years from 2017 to 2021, with total value growing from $19 billion to $180 billion. It is now an imperative for corporations to engage with startups to identify the teams and technologies that will advance their business.
We work with corporate and industry partners to build and accelerate their innovation strategies. We leverage our global network to drive meaningful relationships with startups, connect corporations into the startup ecosystems, and support cultural transformations.
1. STRATEGIC AND BUSINESS IDEAS
It’s not common for a creative boutique to love strategic thinking, but that’s how we roll. From inventing business products to dissecting a new strategic direction for an old product or brand, we use any available client-provided research, or apply the latest digital and traditional tools to get to the bottom of the matter.
2. SOCIAL DESIGN AND ADVERTISING
Everything needs to be integrated, social and sharable today. Even traditional design and advertising must not stand on its own, it needs to be ‘circular’ and stimulate feedback and reactions from customers. We have worked with all types of budgets and surprise our clients all the time with ideas that are affordable and highly effective.
3. IN-HOUSE PRODUCTION
This is what we do on premises; strategy, design, branding, all phases of digital and traditional advertising, (digital) radio, TV, video and social media. On projects that require digital coding, we partner with our clients, their vendors or with our partners around the globe.
4. DIGITAL AND TRADITIONAL MEDIA
We may be small, but we can (and do) compete with large media agencies in bringing you the latest in digital or traditional planning and buying. Whether your campaign calls for an intricate digital approach or a local, national or international solution, we have recent experience in the latest options out there.
