​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A product idea, a service idea, an existing operation, process or a global supply chain.

It all starts with a prototype.

From the first written word, to the back of napkin outline sketch of a product or process. 

Start with small actionable steps that get the acceleration to happen.Continue iterating, improving, and bringing the product, process, or service to market.


By rapid cycles of invention and enhancement. We have done it and can help educate & coach on how. 

Depending on the specific need, we have the practical experience for and access to a global network of providers, services, & technologies that are matched to deliver the best solution.

Additive Manufacturing
3D printing may be the need. We have access to service providers and globally recognized first movers in this space.

Collaborators that are working on the latest technologies and latest materials from organic materials to advanced steels & ceramic composites.

Works-Like/Looks Like Prototyping

Simple & Basic prototyping to convey the benefit promise of the solution. Here, we never say it can't be done.

Our mindset is that we can and will find a solution, and someone-somewhere in the world has figured it out and can help.

We use simple elements to build out the concept further.

Agile development

These principles apply in the accelerate pillar and not just for software. Small Pieces at a time.

Design a small piece, trouble shoot the small piece, move on to the next step.

This runs the gambit from idea generation to complex technologies & global system & supply chain design.

Champion/Challenger testing

Here we look at the current offering against the challenger or "new" solution.

We help you design a suite of testing and evaluations to help you validate and test out the concepts.

​Including big killer "death threats" that may shut down or stop the opportunity.
This gives fast data to understand options and pivot when needed.

Product Simulation and Financial Modeling

Whether its deep detailed technical design analysis, or engineering the entire value chain for your offering.

​We apply simple methods to help understand the cost, market math, first years sales, pricing strategies, and total value to be delivered.

We also access the industry's leading technology tools and providers and deliver capability assessments to the client for the best solution for them. 

This allows decisions to be made quickly.

​Helping clients to understand options and drive a decision to move forward, or make a "smart kill" and stop the activity.
