Innovation is a key ingredient of our approach.

Our work has two special ingredients. We work on-ground with teams, leaders and organizations, going beyond advise by COLLABORATING on shared goals. And the second key ingredient is INNOVATION. We build knowledge, tools and frameworks that evolve from real implementation and innovation action to help teams that want to SCALE.

Over the last few years of working in collaboration with ENTREPRENEURS we have developed ALCHEMIZE™ a robust acceleration methodology with a current portfolio of 6 social enterprises in engagement. In addition ALCHEMIX™ is the active community of innovation practitioners that we curate through KNOWLEDGE SHARING and interactions.
