Accelevate Mission:
Realizing Full Value From Innovation Investments

Read the Case Study

What We Do: Accelevate Services

We believe that corporations can harvest incredible value from innovation, but there is a gap in the innovation process. Innovation groups do a great job on ideation and innovation sourcing, but often drop the ball on execution of the ideas as a business or service. Corporate teams have technical or functional expertise, but lack venture and innovation ‘DNA’ and process. The result: corporations do not fully realize the value of their innovation investments. Accelevate works hand in hand with innovation teams to turn great ideas into viable businesses. We help innovation teams pick up the ball and run with it. Each service is designed to be agile and iterative. Most are completed in 1-2 months.
