Do you want to grow something different?
We help people and companies to grow by doing what they are good at, like to do, and care the most about. We work with them to use what’s unique about them so they can make a difference others will value. Sometimes that means starting something new, but more often than not it means building on what they are already doing and taking it to the next level.
Individuals, startups, small businesses, or teams within larger companies or organisations. Anyone who wants to grow something different.
We need to take venture back to its roots. It’s not just about startups. It means a journey of exploration which offers risks and rewards. This requires engaging with uncertainty and using it as the raw material for creating new products, services and business models which will make a difference others will value enough to reward you. It means developing the resilience to take risks so you can explore.
Planning is great once you have deep understanding of the parts of a problem and the pros and cons of the alternatives. Design is how you get to that stage. It’s about developing insight before jumping to solutions. Using creativity and imagination to come up with alternatives. It’s building prototypes and iterating them until they fit the purpose.
Simple brings rigour and discipline to the process. It ensures that you are focusing on building something concrete and valuable. It strips away the superfluous. It requires clarity of purpose and communication.
