The Power of Open Innovation

Open Innovation challenges save money and reduce time to market, by tapping into research and development done by others, giving you access to innovation that is ready for commercialisation.

Implementing a Design Thinking toolkit for an award winning heating manufacturer saw 70 staff of attend Idea Training. This training saw 450 concept boards created and 75% of attendees coming away feeling able to express creativity and ideas in the workplace – up 25% from before.


Our 5 year, challenge-led open programme for Innovate UK engaged over 250 corporate partners. 100 trials were awarded to start ups, with 70% of those successfully commercialising solutions.

Curating an innovation launch pad event for a multinational credit card supplier resulted in the creation of 8 concepts, that the client expanded within their innovation team. 100% of 150 attendees were keen to take part in similar events in the future and 97% of participants learnt something new in attending. 

Developing a user-centred approach for an industrial engineering company helped the client get a deeper understanding of their customer. The project generated 200 insight ideas and yielded 4 innovative urban wayfinding product concept routes.
