Digital is eating the world; starting with your own idea has never been easier, but growing your startup into a sustainable business with revenue is harder than ever before. Corporates slowly die while startups are knocking on their doors and need to innovate rapidly in order to survive. At We Are Off The Record we help companies to gain traction and sustainable growth. We strongly believe in creativity blended with technology that’s backed by data.
Our clients vary from (international) startups, scale-ups and corporates like ING, Philips and Nestlé. It's our mission to help our clients with the sustainable growth of their business, businesses that are profitable and stand out from the noise in the digital jungle. We work together with our clients and aren't simply for hire. We choose our clients wisely, but if we do, we will give our best for as long as possible.
Why do we need you
With our boutique bureau, our mission is to help founders and corporate managers to build viable businesses. However, at many organisations innovation resembles more of a theatre than an impactful parameter of accomplishing successful new business models. We are changing that together with top-class Fortune500 companies for which we either do one-off stints to shape and validate an idea in a given timeframe or are either their long-term partner working with multiple incumbent teams in their Accelerator.
