The solution? They need to turn these threats into innovation opportunities. Businesses need the innovative start-up mentality.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes this Innovation Bootcamp unique?

The Talent Institute is part of the innovation ecosystem We Empower Innovators, together with Startupbootcamp, Europe’s most well-known startup accelerator, and Innoleaps, a worldwide corporate innovation accelerator. Over the past years, the three companies together have built a network of innovation, industry and entrepreneurial experts that is unmatched.

During the Young Digital Innovator Program, we assist corporate companies by placing a Growth Hacker or Innovator in their innovation team to guide them through the innovation process. Over the past few years, TTI has worked with many and diverse (international) companies.
