Our Approach

We start by discovering the business and customer needs, desires and vision.  We then define product-market hypotheses around how your venture will create value and grow, before validating risky assumptions through design, prototyping and customer testing.  Finally, we help communicate your proposition in a way that tells a story and connects with your customers and stakeholders - a must-have for any venture.

Approach

1. Discover

Working collaboratively, we gain an understanding of the business, brand, customer and environment.

01

2. Canvas

Together we define product-market fit, and map how the value of the venture links to the needs of the customer.

3. Design

We then rapidly prototype the venture inclusive of a Lean brand,  allowing for validation that is as accurate to in-market as possible.

4. Validate

Next we validate the hypotheses through testing before synthesising the results to identify strengths, uncover weaknesses and establish priorities and recommendations.

5. Communicate

Wrapping it up in a bow, we give your venture the edge with a compelling story that will inspire your team members, stakeholders and customers.
