INNOVATION
AS A SERVICE

Knowing the right thing to build comes before building the thing right, and is often the more difficult of the two. Envisioning Labs is a leader in discovering -- 'envisioning' in our terminology -- what to focus on to drive your organization forward. 

We help your organization with:

  • Envisioning what to build (product, service, experience, process, or market).
  • De-risking development by creating proof-of-concept prototypes for aspects of the envisioned future solution (R&D).
  • Training you and your staff on how to think about and execute these innovation processes yourself.

ENVISIONING SERVICES

Envisioning is our process for helping you understand what to build. When considering new products or services, deciding what to focus on and build represents the highest uncertainty yet and it's the most critical stage of any innovation activity.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

If the project warrants a proof-of-concept prototype to more concretely clarify what to build, we can research and develop a solution/experience that may involve data, software or hardware components, or more likely a combination of these.

CORPORATE INNOVATION

Behind everything we do is a desire to spread innovative thinking and the techniques that support it so we can all better address important problems. We have executed corporate innovation programs and innovation training from both within multi-national companies and as consultants.

innovation COMMUNITY

DID WE MENTION THAT WE ALSO RUN THE VANCOUVER INNOVATION LABS AND THE VANCOUVER CORPORATE INNOVATION GROUP?

 

YUP.

Since 2013 we have been building a community of innovation enthusiasts (close to 1,500 members today) ranging from academics and researchers to small business owners, designers and even government officials...and everyone in between. We firmly believe that innovation feeds off of diversity of thought, and that great ideas only emerge when people from different backgrounds get together to share their unique perspectives.
