THE TREND COLLECTION52 BUSINESS MODELS

A Different Type of Venture for a Different Type of Challenge

We are pragmatic optimists about the future. We believe bigger companies can be beautiful and innovative. We reject overly overly academic, rigid or futuristic schhols of thought. Corporate innovation is the major leagues. You just can’t take the new-fangled startup ways and replant it. One size does not fit all. Comapnies need less B.S. and more action. We’d like to help.

The Gap

93% of executives expect industry disruption in the near term and only 20% know what to do with it.

The Performance

Corporate innovation is ranked 18th out 23 core company activities by boards and executives.

The Speed

Across 50 different dimensions, the world is operating 7.7x faster than it was a generation ago.

BETTER, BOLDER, SIMPLER FUTURES

Forget disruption and the “sky is falling”, let’s get to next:

  • Vision – We want to make innovation, growth and transformation a core company skillset
  • Mission – for organizations from 50 to 50,000 employees, we anticipate AND deliver better futures now
  • Goal – to be one of the top innovation alternatives to big box consultancies, software firms and innovation boutiques 
  • Core Values – hopeful, genuine, foresight-rich, collaborative, customer-driven, lean, “the glue”

"INNOVATION YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK"

Success rates are way too low in corporate innovation, we think we have a better mindset, approach and pedigree:

Better ROI – faster,  scaleable and value-driven

Wider Perspective – global, cross-industry, tech & customer

Deeper Experience – seasoned, bulletproofed & partnered

Corporate Ready – applied innovation excellence, bigger organization focus
