Changing Organizational Culture Bottom-up

An integral approach to corporate innovation

How it Works Watch Video

HighTechXL partners with corporations to drive an internal cultural change: from an ’employee’ to a ‘leader‘ mindset. We set the scene within any organization to innovate itself.

We leverage the in-depth knowledge of an organization’s existing talent and empower employees to create new business opportunities, while co-working with external startups to quickly adopt a more agile and independent perspective.

Embracing the startup approach is the first step to becoming more resilient. We help you build a culture of entrepreneurship and a system to fast-track your innovations to the marketplace.

Step #1 Identify

The first step to corporate innovation is to identify those employees with an entrepreneurial calling, or intrapreneurs. To do this, employees are stimulated to generate ideas, and then asked to commit to developing that idea within the organization, validate the problem, build a venture team, find ambassadors and see it through – a kind of your own R&D department.

Step #2 Accelerate

The next step focuses on building a business or a revenue-generating product line. The intrapreneurs are guided to move fast from their prototype to a fully-fledged product through a hands-on program, based on the proven HighTechXL Startup Accelerator model, which is designed to get teams to launch onto the market.

Step #3 Scale

The last step is to invest in rapid growth. Our approach to this phase is twofold: help the advanced in-corporate ventures connect to important industry partners and networks in order to “launch” their product to a larger customer base and scale-up their venture, and simultaneously attract external emerging scaleups to join a Launchpad program.

In this way, your organization can quickly roll out new products or services to its clients, while acting as a launchpad for emerging startups in your industry. The Launchpad is the phase when external entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs meet to lend each other's perspective in order to maximize cross-learning.
