The European leadership team of a major global payments business asked us to transform their approach to innovation and help them become more effective at getting new products to market. We also needed to develop a series of new product ideas to help them fill significant gaps in an ambitious 5-year growth plan that had already been announced to investors.
We worked with teams from across the business to define a new innovation strategy which was tested and refined through a series of 100-day proof-of-concept sprints. We set up innovation hubs in London, Berlin and Tel Aviv and helped the client build an ecosystem of partnerships to accelerate their own internal innovation activities.

Our work helped to transform the client’s approach to innovation, both from an internal perspective and in the way that it engages with external partners and enablers in the European FinTech ecosystem. The team we helped build continues to generate a steady stream of commercially viable products and services to the client's main business.
