12 Years of experience translated into software
In the past 12 years we have helped and invested in hundreds of startups and helped professionalize dozens of corporate innovation labs. We are very proud of our work at DHL, Schiphol, ABN Amro and Sony, to name a few. We’ve created the NEXT Canvas to help corporate startups focus on their most risky assumptions and started using our innovation sprints to make innovation work. Esther wrote The Corporate Startup and we took a deep dive into how Innovation Accounting could work for you.
Back in 2015, we started building a software platform to support our consultancy activities. To be able to be better startup coaches, give more insight into our clients portfolios and automatically gather innovation kpis. In early 2020 we decided to flip our business model. Instead of offering our services with a software platform on the side, we now fully focus on making GroundControl the platform to help innovation managers professionalise innovation.
All of our experience, all our lessons and best practices we now combine in the GroundControl platform. Like to give it a try?
