Wonderland is a network of New School entrepreneurs. We collaborate with startup ecosystems in Belgium like iStart, Start-It @KBC, & ICAB-X. We are exchanging information with accelerators and startup studios in Barcelona, London and Amsterdam.
We are fine-tuning our own incubator named "MaverickX" in which we are building several software startups with some of the best entrepreneurial teams we know.
Our ambition as a network is to become among the best in the world in "innovation execution". The innovation funnel goes from inspiration to ideation, creating concepts which you validate, over to finding traction channels and product or service optimization, to finally implementing an executable and scalable plan grounded on real-world evidence.
It's very hard to assemble the right expertise at every stage. As a network, we are able to help corporates and startups with just-in-time teaming, providing expertise and power to execute in any phase.
The curious thing is, we do that with both startups and corporations! As a corporate, you want your people to take initiative. You want transversal cooperation, and place your customer in the centre. You need agile and iterative project approaches to stay ahead of the competition.
You want to be a sexy digital employer. Startups do most of these things naturally. They’ve built their company on top of a customer journey and created a fun and agile digital culture without thinking about it. They're able to hire the best and brightest for little pay. Culture change for corporates starts with fundamentally understanding that high-growth startup DNA.
Next comes an entire shopping list of best practices and competences that a corporate can adopt and develop to integrate startup innovation skills within a larger organisation. Organisation design can also help corporates become faster in experimenting and execution, deciding when to launch a few speedboats and when to throw in the ocean liner.
We make the bridge between both worlds, because we understand that both startups and corporates have a lot to learn and gain from each other.
The reason we started Wonderland is because we wanted to share our best work, helping others to make an impact and, together, build meaningful companies for the next generation. It's in our DNA: we are entrepreneurs for hire. No detailed requirement lists or an inability to leave the script.
Just tell us what your biggest challenges are today, tomorrow and in the future and we'll help you solve them. To do that, we bring our extensive network, proven methodologies, years of expertise and a lot of energy.
