Whether you’re just starting out, looking to pivot or optimise, or after ongoing growth and innovation, we’re here to help you make it happen.
Every business is unique. How Innovation HQ can help is just as versatile. Here are some of the ways we help businesses develop and do great things:
Product innovation & R+D
Business coaching, strategy & opportunity identification
Funding (through capital, partnership, forecasting & grants)
Skill gap learning
Digitisation & optimisation
Brand & marketing
Workspace, hot desks & other infrastructure
Part of our service to the business community is to not only provide innovative solutions but also to be innovative in the way we fund this support.
So, you could contract each of the above services as you would any business/technology consultant OR together we look for smarter ways of funding, including:
Shared return on invesment and/or shared equity in your project
Accessing community, government and industry grants
Venture capital and angel investing
A combo of several approaches
INCUBATOR: START UP
This 6 to 12-month programme is designed for early-stage companies, less than one year in operation, who have a unique value proposition. These businesses have the potential to scale and show early signs of validation through a developing customer base or similar metrics.
Together with your business coach/coaches over a fixed term, you will define your business model and target market, identify the opportunities ahead of you and develop a plan to see them realised. We will work alongside you to see that plan in to action, measuring results and iterating the product and approach as we go.
Programme intakes throughout the year. All businesses must complete an application process that begins with meeting one of our business coaches.
PROJECTS: OPTIMISE or PIVOT
You’re an established business but you’ve spotted a big opportunity to pivot towards or an area that is crying out for optimisation. A fixed-term 3- to 6-month Pivot or Optimise Project could be just the ticket.
Together we’ll identify the opportunity/need, set a deadline date and create an action plan to move heaven and earth to make the project happen.
These projects are intensive and exciting and you’ll have access to the full family of Innovation HQ businesses and support networks.
Project intakes throughout the year. All businesses must complete an application process that begins with meeting one of our business coaches.
INNOVATION HQ PARTNERSHIP
You’re an established business with innovation and continued growth in your DNA and you want to partner with passionate people and organisations to continue to impact your world. An Innovation HQ Partnership is for you.
Together we will come up with a partnership agreement that ensures a win-win-win relationship where our powers combined are more impactful than the sum of our parts.
