LEAN INTO THE FUTURE
We operate at the intersection of the future and business.
We live between early stage idea and reliable growth.
We help deliver innovation competence and confidence.
A Different Type of Venture for a Different Type of Challenge
Futureproofers are pragmatic optimists about the future. We believe bigger companies can be beautiful and innovative. We reject overly academic, rigid or futuristic schools of thought. Corporate innovation is the major leagues. You just can’t take the new-fangled startup ways and replant them.. One size does not fit all. Companies need less B.S. and more action. We’d like to help.
93% of executives expect industry disruption in the near term and only 20% know what to do with it.
Corporate innovation is ranked 18th out 23 core company activities by boards and executives.
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
