Organisations need entrepreneurial capabilities and culture for successful strategic transformation

  • The world is changing faster and more unpredictable than ever — the future-proof organisations who win will be the ones who can transform, adapt and thrive within this context.
  • To be a future-proof organisation, creativity and entrepreneurial capabilities are crucial workforce requirements.
  • We have worked with hundreds of entrepreneurially-talented individuals within organisations and we call them intrapreneurs.

We unleash entrepreneurial capabilities for strategic transformation

  • We implement systems that empower Intrapreneurs and embed entrepreneurial capabilities via our proprietary framework for Entrepreneurial Capability Development.
  • We help organisations align their transformation agenda to business strategy; upskill entrepreneurial skills and leadership; accelerate innovation to address transformation opportunities and challenges, and ensure that the entrepreneurial change is sustained over time.

The way we do it is different


We remove the guesswork in innovation through a systematic data-driven approach to inform and measure progress and outcomes.


We move at pace via sprint –or hack- methodologies because time is of the essence for transformation and change. We put the right people on the right problems.


We combine the best of a range of innovation disciplines, including lean startup, design thinking and speculative design.


We collaborate openly where needed through partnerships with Academia, Industry and the Startup ecosystem.


We create tangible tools and resources to enable your Intrapreneurs to continue spreading entrepreneurial ways of working and thinking across the organisation.
