Execution is the key challenge in innovation

We work with entrepreneurs who want to build high-performing companies.

Reviews, Coaching and Development - from executives, for executives and their teams.

When we can help

You are growing from 10+ team members, and you lose energy on getting organized and staying productive. We've been there, and we know the shortcuts to scalable, effective structures and a rock-solid delivery management.
1. Review - you want to know the current state of affairs in your venture or project.
  • We show you how productive you are currently delivering, and how you can improve.
2. Interim and Firefighting - you need help, hands-on and effective
  • All problems can be solved - and if not, we will tell you right away
3. Company Development - structure, processes and habits to make your venture ready for growth
  • The unique StartupPilot framework helps you and your company to develop the skills nobody has ever taught you

Hope is not a strategy for successful execution.

Use a strategic approach, and profit from 20+ years experience in leading innovative projects, paired with a strong methodical background.
