Incubate and hatch
the best ideas.
Like a Padang & Co acceleration programme, an incubation programme typically starts with corporate sponsorship and investment in the process -- from defining the problem or opportunity statements to mentoring the teams on the domain and the potential pilot and rollout within the organisation.
We challenge the “intrapreneurs” to reimagine the way their business units do business or exploit new technologies. They will experience an accelerated programme like what a startup founder will go through when building and validating a business value proposition and model. If required, the entire incubation programme can be run virtually.
These intrapreneurs in turn become innovation champions who excite their colleagues and rally support for other innovation initiatives. Through the process of supporting the development of ideas into solutions that the business can further invest in, you can discover how innovation can work for your corporation.
