Intrapreneurs discussing Corporate Innovation

We’re a London-headquartered innovation studio who work with global brands, organisations and academic institutions, such as Sony Music Entertainment, EY, NHS, Pentland Brands (home to Speedo, Berghaus, Ellesse and more), AptarGroup, the Institute of Cancer Research, Imperial College London, University College London and the London School of Economics.

The world is changing faster and more unpredictably than ever. Now even more so with COVID-19. We believe that strategic clarity, pro-innovation cultures and talented intrapreneurial individuals are the best ways for organisations to thrive in these uncertain times.

We enable organisations to execute strategic transformation by unlocking internal entrepreneurial talent and capabilities. To do this, we design and implement innovation programmes that empower intrapreneurs and embed entrepreneurial capabilities to be long-lasting and part of organisational culture and DNA.

We’re a diverse bunch of no-nonsense individuals with an eclectic mix of passions (from music production and salsa dancing to improvised theatre).
We care about what we do, how we do it and most importantly, why it matters.

If you do too, then get in touch.
