Why it works better

We are one-of-a-kind.  Unlike Consulting Firms, Startup Studios and Intrapreneurship, our business model and teams have all it takes to build new ventures and brands in a corporate context: strategic thinking, an entrepreneurial mindset, corporate understanding and aligned interests.

Fast-Up Partners vs Consulting Firms

Consulting firms clearly have the brain power to produce strategies on slides, but seldom execute them in the real world. Beyond analysis, we add business intuitions, risk taking, gut based decisions and operational capabilities to make strategies happen.

Fast-Up Partners vs Startup Studios

Most digital startuppers fall short in the corporate context. Corporations need partners who deeply understand the way they work so that they can move fast without losing internal support and buy in.

Fast-Up Partners vs Intrapreneurship

Intrapreneurship sounds like a great corporate / entrepreneurship combination but it doesn’t succeed at scale. Because most entrepreneurial profiles end up leaving the corporate world, like we did many years ago. The Fast-Up Partners eco-system is designed to make these dual profiles flourish and keep on bringing value to corporations…from the outside
