What You Will Learn :
- Structured approach creates accountability and monitoring of development
An internal corporate start-up accelerator process that cuts through the “innovation fluff” to achieve problem-solution fit for your innovation projects. For Intrapreneurs and Innovators.
Most corporate accelerator programs fail due to a lack of structure, expert guidance and support for running lean start-up experiments. It’s too easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of fancy jargon and sexy activities that don’t achieve ROI. Moving people away from long discussions and planning meetings requires a real-world entrepreneurial experience. Teams must be hands-on when learning the fundamentals of Design Thinking, Customer Development, Lean Start-up and Agile. If you are looking to go beyond “innovation theatre” then AfCE has an approach fit for you.
Carefully crafted tutorials and assignments are strategically placed along a 12 week curriculum to help Intrapreneurs learn what they need to know and apply that to their own ideas. This flagship offering played a big role in helping Bayer’s Intrapreneurship program unlock 1 Billion EUR of new annual revenue potential. AfCE mentors guide each team to leverage the curriculum to identify assumptions and run experiments with real customers. A Prototype Fund providing access to our team of designers, developers and online marketers is an integral part of the program and allows teams to develop pretotypes and prototypes at speed. The accelerator combines physical and virtual engagements, often in the native language of participants.
