New product, service, and business model development

No one understands the word 'innovation' so we're focused on outcomes, which makes it easier for you to explain and get buy-in from business units. 

This is NOT a mentor-driven or coaching program. We advise as well execute with you. We provide 16+ hours of one to ones to each team/idea, 20+ hours of co-working from our team of entrepreneurs and creatives, 5+ introductions to potential customers. We give you the permission, the push outside your comfort zones, the accountability, and to get things done outside organisational norms. 

External Startup Program

 

Emerging Leader Program

Innovation Labs

Innovation Conferences

Do you have a in-person program of support for 10-20 entrepreneurs each year, but find it difficult to scale? 

 

"Virtual" accelerators

Do you have a leadership program without an innovation-strand? 

 

5-day innovation leadership accelerator in Silicon Valley

How do you course correct failing innovations?

 

 

A customer-incubator

Do you have a central innovation lab, but need a lower-cost model to support innovation inside business units? 

 

Innovation on a subscription

Do you have lots of "talking at you" sessions. Why not offer one to ones?

"With our organisational silos, it would have taken us a year to achieve what we did in just 60 days, using just 20% of our time. Impact: 2 failed prototypes, 1 successful (10x reduced cost + higher impact) + £100K seed funding" 

Lindsey, Corporate Intrapreneur

"I have a small central innovation team so we didn't have the capacity to support innovation at scale. I had trouble finding innovation support programmes that were potential for systemic impact across our organisation - until I found Co.Creator"

This month we're profiling Zevae

“Zevae is not a mentor or coach (the softy softy approach) but a true cocreator who pushes you hard to turn ideas into action and revenue. He works with you (not for you) and adds structure, rigour, new hypotheses, and capacity to "get shi* done". We went from a failing project (our service was losing money) and with his direct intervention over 60 days, we prototyped 3 different business models and found one to have greatest impact, generating £100K in funding - all in 60 days and us working 20% of the time on the new idea..."

…"Before Zevae introduced me to his amazing Silicon Valley contacts, I had no idea about how to form a start-up, how investment works or what is required for success. Now, I've taken the plunge and gone full-time - we have paying customers ($500K+ in revenue/funding) and employees, and are already making an amazing impact on student learning. Thanks Zevae!
