So that post-its become ideas and not paper waste
We believe that any problem can be solved with innovation. That is why we want to democratize innovation and make it accessible to everyone, to enable teams to solve the problems of this world together. So that everyone is able to understand and frame problems, generate ideas and develop products and services that people need and love.
When we are not developing products with our customers and partners, we work on our own ideas.
We are passionate about creating new products and services and bringing them to life. We build digital products ourselves, found companies, or support others in doing so. Sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail. We proudly experience the market launch of a product or discard concepts that did not work after all.
And we are always united by our enthusiasm for the process and the creation of something new.
