BEYOND – A COLLABORATIVE CORPORATE ACCELERATOR
HOW IT WORKS
A typical BEYOND project lasts for 12 months, divided into three core phases:
Onboarding and Take Off
Exploration, validation and testing of hypothesis. Build a Value Proposition.
Intensive innovation idea and hypothesis testing as well as maturity assessment of the idea. Determine Target and Innovation Ambition for 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. Determine focus for each 3-month sprint.
First Innovation Assessment Board Review at the end of the first 3 months. “Go” or “No Go”.
Full focus on project progress, with base camp at BEYOND.
- Participate in recurrent and collaborative events at BEYOND such as Challenge Dojo, Beyond Power Hour, IP Flyover, Tech Wiz Day etc.
- Tailored events and workshops to support the project progress
- Build a Minimum Viable Product – MVP.
Re-entering the Atmosphere
Prepare the team and the organization for integration of the project in the business. Determine the best conditions for the innovation idea to scale up and grow. Start a new company or incorporate in current company structure. Go-To-Market plan, resource allocation and investment need.
