  • Strategic planning: helping managers to define and implement their strategic roadmap.
  • Innovation organisation: identifying key success factors and proposing processes and governance for innovation.
  • Open innovation systems: equipping the company with new tools to create value beyond its historical model (start-ups, corporate ventures, entrepreneurship, spin-offs, innovation hubs, etc.).

‘We support both business experts and Comexes in defining their innovation strategy.

How do I innovate internally? How do I work with external start-ups? How do I invest in innovative companies? Working with Impulse Partners means being supported both in defining your innovation strategy and in implementing it, on a day-to-day basis, with people who innovate and an ecosystem of entrepreneurs.‘

Olivier DelamarreStrategy & Development Director - Léon Grosse

"Impulse Partners has a fresh look in a very conservative industry, a young and innocent look but without certainty or arrogance.

Impulse has helped us a great deal to make progress on issues such as carbon footprinting, strategic animation and development in the energy field, concretes of the future, and also partnership projects with start-ups in the property sector and industries related to the construction trades. We appreciate their know-how and they know how to speak the language of builders, developers, architects and customers. We value their interpersonal skills, and they know how to speak the language of builders, developers, architects and customers."
