Identify and accelerate top intrapreneurial talent, radically increase the speed from idea to market-tested prototype and champion a culture of intrapreneurial leadership inside your company.
SWAT is our accelerator program for internal startups. It is designed to (1) identify and accelerate top intrapreneurial talent (2) radically increase the speed from idea to market-tested prototype (3) champion a culture of intrapreneurial leadership inside your company.
We help unlock value through: a dedicated Entrepreneur-in-residence, a sounding board of experts from the startup community and Five by Five’s lean curriculum and curated special activities to immerse teams in startup culture. No two SWAT programs are identical: Each program is designed to fit each companies’ business focus, innovation priorities (ex. incremental vs. new growth) and yes, even HR policies.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE
After the program, you can expect to see: A solution to a defined problem (client pain point) with a specified scope, i.e., a defined target audience and a plan to address as large a portion of that audience as possible. A solution (product or other) with an easy-to-understand value proposition and clear user journey. A clear demo that clearly gets the point across in terms of the solution’s value proposition and value to customers.
Deep market understanding that helps to build a scalable, sustainable business model which examines how big the opportunity really is. An initial go-to-market strategy and pricing plan A benchmark of existing competitors and how the new solution transforms or improves on currently available solutions.
WHO IS IT FOR
SWAT often brings together a trinity: A C-level sponsor, a business-focused team (ex. Strategy, Innovation, BU) and HR.
