Intrapreneurs discussing Corporate Innovation

We are a London-headquartered talent development and innovation studio. We work with global brands, organisations and academic institutions across a range of industries, such as Sony Music EntertainmentEYNHSPentland BrandsAptar Group, UK Civil ServiceTarget Corporation, Wellcome Trust and the Institute of Cancer Research, as well as the UK’s leading academic institutions like Imperial College LondonUniversity College London and the London School of Economics.

In the face of tumultuous change, established organisations must transform in order to win and thrive. Successful transformations are driven from within by entrepreneurial leaders, who know the business, stakeholders and customers better than anyone else. 

We run in-person and remote talent development programmes that empower future leaders to create new ideas and transform them into scalable growth propositions.

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.
