Frequently Asked Questions

Is this only for dedicated innovation teams?

In today's business, not everyone can afford to be fully dedicated to explore new ideas. We build our programs to work with your team's schedule and creating Pivot or Proceed moments as quickly as possible.

What is a Pivot or Proceed moment?

A Pivot or Proceed moment is when your company has enough information to decide whether you want to change direction or continue to invest in the innovation.

How do we know what to decide?

We won't tell you what to do, but we can help you make informed decisions. Our team includes experienced venture capitalists and investors that understand the measurements for success at various levels of innovation maturity. We can help you create meaningful targets for your team that mitigate your risks and maximize your value.
