The “Work Hard, Play Hard, Do Good, Travel Well, Make it Better” All-Star Network
No matter how great your tools, techniques or technology, when it comes down to top performing companies, it really is about the people.
Futureproofing ; Next founders Andrea Kates and Sean Moffitt have built a practice & community of inspiring change agents, global thought leaders and passionate collaborators across the innovation world.
We’ll never aspire to be the biggest, but we are gunning to be the most passionate, experienced and genuine innovation partner you can find. Work with us, or perhaps even join us on our quest.
You really can’t teach or train optimism. So we’ve attracted the best & brightest personalities who positively embrace change, believe impossible is nothing and then actually go and do something about it.
Corporate life has enough politics, why not work with genuine people who really do have your best interests at heart. Leave the drama at the door, roll up our sleeves and let’s start changing the world together.
Our global network is marketplace & trend fluent, tech-savvy & adept, agility-biased and has 3-4X the experience of many similar firms across corporate and startup life. We have been there before.
F:N founders Andrea Kates and Sean Moffitt have combined decades of experience, having led six separate companies across over 300 global clients.
They’ve delivered winning corporate innovation, entrepreneurial & intrapreneurial wisdom and board room credibility & foresight.
And they both were healthily dissatisfied with how innovation gets practiced and wanted to build something better out of the strengths of their two companies:
- Wikibrands – business & digital transformation, marketplace & tech trends, corporate innovation & commercialization, brand, customer & employee experience, culture and digitalization.
- iScale – scaling company innovation, end-to-end innovation process, lean startup, Silicon Valley agile methods , leadership & team development, business model innovation and experimentation
