The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

Our point of view

We believe there’s more to gain by working together, rather than going it alone and starting from scratch. We offer uplifting solutions to business problems by carefully selecting the best Startup talent and then tuning their offering to match the business needs.

We’re not a Startup accelerator. Nor are we a traditional business consultancy. We look at improvement via addition. That’s why we’ve created a new term for what we are, the world’s first business augmentor.

Business Augmentor

To augment, is to make something greater by adding to it. Because we believe in combining strengths and making business better by adding to it, we support the joining of forces between corporate experience with Startup tenacity. And we’re not the only ones.

There’s a growing group of service providers that support Startup driven open innovation and it’s only just beginning. While we’ve been augmenting businesses since 2015, we decided to carve out a new category term for ourselves. We are the world’s first Business Augmentors.
