Venture Strategy

We bring courage, vision and entrepreneurship back into big business with strategies based on lean startup principles.

BRING ENTREPRENEURSHIP INTO YOUR ORGANISATION

Corporate entrepreneurship needs an awakening. Large organisations are so focused on sustaining their current business models that they have lost the art of seeking transformative opportunities through new business models.

Venture Strategy is a structured way to help search for and build new business models. We help you adopt the mindset of an entrepreneur, to bring courage and vision to exploring new growth opportunities and strategically advise you on which ventures to pursue.

We take a radically different approach to developing new ventures. We help you run them like ‘internal start-ups’ with minimal time, budget and resources so that your staff develop the agility, courage and “just do it” attitude of a start-up founder. As a result, your staff become ‘intrapreneurs’ and founders who create ready-to-scale business models that unlock new opportunities for your organisation.

Validate Ideas

Gain certainty around your customers needs and wants
At the start, your ideas are just that – ideas. You need certainty that your customers value and desire your offerings. We help you build simple and quick prototypes to validate the value proposition of your ideas from the perspective of your customer.

Generate Evidence

De-risk innovation with experiments that provide data to make decisions
It’s easy to analyse existing businesses as you already have past information. This is more difficult for new ventures due to limited data, requiring a multitude of assumptions. We show you how to run experiments to generate quality data so that you can make sound investment decisions..

Succeed Often

Increase your chances of success by venturing smart
Nine out of ten new ventures will fail mostly because businesses create products that no one wants and solve problems that just aren’t important. Be smart. Gain insight. Test and learn. Our rapid, prudent and rigorous approach helps you to succeed more often.

Next Steps

Build knowledge and understanding

Develop the mindset and skills to design and conduct your own innovation planning, strategising, interviewing, testing and development. We help your staff and teams to innovate and adapt to new ways of working and explore the roles of customers and organisational culture. Whether it’s half-day sessions or a four-day workshop series, we give you a taste of innovation in a hands-on and experiential manner.
