We have worked with companies like BP, Halma and Capita to cultivate and aid their intrapreneurs in creating and launching new growth propositions. We also run programmes to find and accelerate existing start-ups that have strategic value for firms including Facebook and ITV.

Our tailor-made programmes are developed and ran based on our clients’ goals, industry context and unique attributes - these might include validating and de-risking early-stage bets that could transform your industry, reaching new demographics with alternative concepts, or strengthening your ecosystem through adding value to key participants.

Our Principles #

Bespoke Programmes

Each programme is designed bespoke to maximise the strategic value

Extraordinary Access

Participants benefit from exclusive sessions with leading founders, VCs and technical experts who help the entrepreneurs to develop rapidly

Expertise and Empowerment

We’re hands-on mentors who have seen what works (and what doesn’t). We both support and push the entrepreneurs to operate at their best

Creative Engagement

We’re entrepreneurs who help participants adopt new mindsets and solve thorny problems quickly, focusing limited resources on what matters at each stage of growth
