Why does an Innovation Tour help in my innovation process?
During an Innovation Tour you will learn how other companies, agencies and startups implement innovative ideas. An Innovation Tour (also called Innovation Journey, Innovation Expedition) is the opportunity to get to know other working cultures and methods. It will help gaining insights into how young companies organize meetings, develop products or launch marketing campaigns. You can get a cross-sector overview or focus on your industry.

What to expect of an Innovation Tour
An Ambivation Innovation Tour can last a few hours or several days. In a relaxed atmosphere you get to know a few founders or take part in an entire method training together with founders. Among other things it can be perfectly combined with a Design Thinking or Lean Startup training. During the Innovation Tour we will visit the offices and co-working spaces of startups and agencies.

Other Innovation Approaches
The ideal number of participants is between 4 and 10 persons per group, so that all participants have a similar experience and everyone can have their say. If your group is larger, we can organise the tour for you in several groups or develop a framework suitable for larger groups, please contact us.
We need about 2 hours per startup. For an Innovation Tour you should see at least 2 startups and schedule 4 hours. Sometimes we can also invite startups together into our Co-Working Space so we don’t lose any travel time between working places.
For our needs assessment it is important to know what your innovation strategy is and where you want to go. Do you have product ideas? Do you have problems? We want to organize a valuable tour for you and get to know you better.
We implement the Innovation Tour most often in Berlin and Munich and have a strong network there. Thanks to our network and our startup and cooperation database, we can also offer tours in other cities around the world or visit you in the region with innovators and startups.
