Visiting Entrepreneurs

You get to meet some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs who come to share their raw, honest startup stories with us.

Team Budget

Thanks to our sponsors, each team gets a real team budget to be spent on marketing, product development and help from external field experts.

Effective Digital Tools

You learn how to work like the world’s fastest growing startups work, using a state of the art digital toolkit for cooperation, problem solving and product development.

Early Stage gives you an unique opportunity to be an entrepreneur and to learn without taking the risks normally involved. The most important thing I learned from the program is how to validate ideas by building minimum viable products.

Preparing You for a Radically Different Future

Putting the ovation into innovation training

Innovation Training

Even in a rapidly changing world, certain things hold true. Practice still makes perfect.

If you’re practising literal fire drills regularly, you should also practise figurative fire drills that can kill your business. What happens when new technology disrupts your business model?

We make customized Early Stage programmes for forward leaning organisations, tailored to your needs – for 8 hours, 8 weeks or anything in between.

While content is tailored to your specific needs, we typically touch on effective use of digital tools, and the rise of exponential tech. We take your understanding from buzzwords to applicability – what is blockchain, really..? What will artificial intelligence do to my business..? 

Digititalise or Die

Digital Tools that Simply Work

We typically consult businesses on digitalisation, growth and LEAN methodologies.

How can you use digital tools for more effective team communication, better project management, and a clearer overview of what’s happening in your business day to day?

How can you use digital marketing efforts to grow your customer base and audience in a cost-effective manner?

How can you experiment and test new ideas cheaply and quickly, and avoid wasting time on projects that are doomed to fail?

We typically work with you on implementation of digital systems that simply work. We call it an IT consultancy for for non-IT people.
