Products and Programs

Get closer to the perfect innovation program by integrating our modular offerings.

These are the Innovation Phases.

Click on the programs below to learn more.

AfCE offerings are designed to increase the innovation capability for 3 types of roles; the Innovation Manager who must analyze, fund and scale innovation, the Intrapreneur who must test and validate ideas successfully, and the Innovation Mentor who must coach others so that your innovation efforts can be sustainable. Each role can progress through 6 levels of capability building resulting in certification.

In 2018, we analyzed over 100 top innovation agencies from around the world and uncovered that the most common innovation services offered were typically within the
Ideation phase and the Incubation phase. Inside corporates, management often become excited by new ideas and they get pushed too quickly into the incubation phase to start building the solution. Unfortunately, many of these ideas are not yet mature enough and have not been validated by the market – they do not solve a real problem for a real customer in an interesting and viable way. Customers end up rejecting the idea and executives quickly lose interest due to a lack of traction, causing the idea to land in the “Valley of Death”.


The best and most sustainable innovation programs support each innovation phase by addressing the needs of the Intrapreneurs, Mentors and Managers, using the most scientific and rigorous methods. Welcome to the Academy for Corporate Entrepreneurship.
Speak with us about how to mix and match our modular offerings so that your organization can strengthen it’s approach to innovation and get closer to the perfect program!
