Our Story in Brief

Vertical is an innovation company. It is originally the brainchild of four founders: Christian Lindholm, Kenneth Salonius, Sebastien Gianelli and Paolo Borella. In five years, the company has seen changes and has grown into a full-service innovation house. The company’s offering has always been foremost customer-centric.

A testament to Vertical’s market sensitivity is its focus change from an acceleration based business model to innovation consulting. The accelerator model, while very much feasible, was deemed to not service Vertical’s clients in the best way possible The revelation was that in facilitating innovation one size does not fit all and the batch model where there were multiple corporates along with a batch of startups was let go. Vertical took action in building new competences by hiring new professionals in business analysing and design as well as executing projects which required a new level of sophistication.

Vertical takes pride in the fact that it has seen the growth company field from all possible angles. We have provided, bought and facilitated services as well as developed and invested in growth companies.
