About Us

Upbeat started six years ago as an experiment. We wanted to see if we could use startup practices in Corporate environments. Starting with product teams in the trenches. Implementing Lean Startup principles seemed harder than expected. Getting teams using experiments and adopting small failures in their journey to success, getting management buy-in and adopting new sets of metrics.

Over the course of these six years, we have created a framework to implement Lean Startup principles at all levels of an organization. To support this we have created a series of successful programs to support innovation by:

  • Innovation Lab: accelerating corporate innovation teams to create new products and business models,

  • Synergy Program – adopting innovative business models and new technologies from small and innovative companies,

  • Portfolio Management – helping senior management use lean startup principles to assess their innovation portfolio.

We are innovation enthusiasts with more than 25 years of experience as founders, innovators, business developers and coaches for startup teams and enterprises. Using the Lean Startup principles can save you time and valuable resources. We want to share this knowledge with you and help you with your future endeavors.

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” ~Michael Jordan
