We foster innovation in organizations by helping them build their own innovation models which tailor to their needs and capabilities.
As a starting point of every project we work with our VERNE Model®, which is the synthesis of our experience having created more than 100 innovation projects for clients in all sectors.
Our projects cover a broad scope of topics, from re-thinking the customer experience for a large cinema exhibitor,
to developing an innovation model for one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies; from helping a bio cluster with their strategic vision, to igniting business opportunities between the smartest teams of the world’s best companies.
We also inspire innovation managers and teams through our talks and workshops, such as Radical is Normal, and through our watching mechanisms (systems that use business criteria to detect trends and opportunities).
We strongly believe on new education paradigms, and we work to make them come true.
