Company building

The Challenge

Company building is a process whereby a company creates a new startup/ new venture to develop and launch innovative products or services, to solve a big enough problem the industry/ sector foresees in the future. Often used by larger companies looking to diversify their offerings or enter new markets it can be an effective way to innovate, leveraging the strengths of the parent company while also taking advantage of the agility and innovation potential of a startup. This way, the parent company can focus on its core business, while a team of highly talented people can focus on solving a problem and building a business model around it, that is not in focus of the parent company yet but may be in the future. The setup allows for greater autonomy, hence flexibility and speed, than would be possible within the established corporate structure.
