Elevate your innovation journey with Innovation Navigator!

Since launching Innovation Navigator™ at The Lean Startup Conference less than 100 days ago, we’ve helped >40 teams on their innovation journey. Our novel approach is a mash-up of real option analysis and the Lean Startup method that yields results in 2 days.  

Opportunity teams were able to hone critical thinking to generate better opportunity hypothesis and prioritize discovery experiments for innovation scouting. Investment stakeholders appreciated the concise communication of risk and financial responsibility.   

“We went from conflict on where to start to a clear plan of action prioritized around delivering proof of value.”  - Genomic Drug Delivery team 

 “This method provided a clear connection between team action/funding and buying down risk/creating opportunity upside.”  - VP, Corporate Innovation Office
