Innovation works best when you have a diverse team and a common goal, but how do small businesses & sole traders achieve this? 

Operating online opens up new opportunities to collaborate!

  • We can connect you with others in your industry to bolster your numbers and build diverse industry specific virtual teams. 

If you're not directly competing in the same region why not collaborate and disrupt a market together?!

  • We can bring in professionals from other fields (eg. an app developer or graphic designer) to round out your team and help develop holistic solutions. 

Allocating and scheduling several concurrent full days to a design sprint is near impossible for most small businesses.

  • Our programs can be spread over several weeks as short facilitated online sessions to minimise the impact on your day to day operations.

  • Offline activities (such as customer research) are conducted in between, so you can ensure innovation fits into your schedule.

  • Hosting workshops online means no wasted travel time!

Workshops can be expensive and difficult for small business to afford.

  • Virtual sessions mean there's no need for hired workshop venues, hotels, taxis or catering potentially saving your business thousands!

  • Removing the need for travel slashes your unproductive and non-income generating down time.

  • The industry collaboration option reduces the number of employees needed to fill out a design team, meaning your business can continue running and making money.

What happens after most courses or workshops? Usually not much! Innovation shouldn't finish when the workshop does.

  • We give you annual access to our online platform and library of tools and how-to's so you can continue to innovate long after a workshop is completed. 

  • We're available for ongoing and on-demand assistance to help you where needed as you continue your innovation journey. 

You're an expert in your field, not in innovation or design thinking! 
We combine the following ingredients to deliver a dynamic experience that will lead you and your business to innovation success:

  • Dynamic & creative coaches with decades of remote team management & facilitation experience 

  • Human-centred design principles, processes & tools

  • Annual access to our online & mobile friendly design thinking platform

  • An online library of innovation how-to's & templates

  • Access to a global network of innovation experts

  • The industry knowledge and insights of you and others in your industry

So what's this human-centred design thing all about?
