Imagine a world where companies and institutions joined forces to drive transformational change to shape a more sustainable world. Sound idealistic? We don’t think so! In most cases it reduces risk, drives bottom line and improves the chance of bringing game-changing innovation to the market.


Competitive innovation has been, and will continue to be, a driver of growth, prosperity and wealth. But more and more organizations face challenges that they cannot solve alone.

Collaborative Innovation and innovation partnerships offer new opportunities to drive sustainable growth, share risks and  increase the chances of bringing game-changing innovations to the market.

Yet some global challenges demand the involvement of more complex sets of stakeholders. Systems Innovation is a powerfull approach for companies or public institutions to remove barriers, identify levers and drive a change of an entire industry or ecosystem.

Too many companies and public institutions do not have a clear strategy when they come to choosing innovation approaches.

At Leaderlab we help companies identify which innovation approach is most efficient in a given situation. We help companies drive competitive innovation. We help identify partners and shape innovation partnerships. And we help companies and governments map critical stakeholders and design strategies and processes to drive systems innovation and sustainable growth.

We have worked with Fortune 500 companies, global public institutions, governments and start-up’s.

Let us help you drive transformational change and shape long term sustainable growth.
