Step 1
Learn

Learning is everything. Organize your own IRL or digital operations to train your IT teams and managers. One unique objective: teach them the startup mindset!

Step 2
Prototype

Stagnation costs more than failure so let’s get your hands dirty! Organize your own hackathons and incubators and involve your stakeholders as mentors or innovators. Incubate the best projects and integrate them inside your company.

Step 3
Launch

Connect with the best projects started at your hackathons and help them in becoming startups. Support their growth, invest in the most promising ones and create your own startup ecosystem.
