Tenshi is an innovation consultancy with significant experience in open innovation practices, innovation process management platforms and early stage design.
We understand how to help organisations to become curious, to be inspired, and to better articulate the innovation challenges they face. We then partner to create meaningful, useful and original solutions. We stimulate innovativeness within our clients’ teams and staff, through our approach, embedding design thinking and creating strategic, highly successful commercial, long term value.
Tenshi means Angel in Japanese, and was formed after recognising the need to accelerate innovation in SME’s, by the UK Government. We’ve delivered Innovate UK’s ‘IC tomorrow’ programme over the past 5 years and have successfully written and led other innovation consortia. In early 2016 a MBO led to a broadening of our offering.
