Insights + Intelligence

Driven by digital disruptions,
we help organizations transform
and deliver waves of growth value

Unlocking growth opportunities



Top performing organizations are increasingly distinguished

by their ability to transform,

exploiting digital disruptions

for radically reshaping their growth trajectories.



the Center for Innovation Management at the University of the Aegean, Greece,

is a boutique R&D and business advisory venture

that aims to help organizations ride such growth waves.

We are driven by our 'unconventional' experiences:

operating at the intersection of strategy and technology,

to break new ground in innovation-driven business transformation.


We focus on the 'uncommon':

by combining academic ingenuity with practical management consulting activities,

to develop innovative value creation options for the organizations we work with.

Whether it is a student startup or

a multinational corporation (like Airbus and Legrand).

We deliver the 'unthinkable':

from ideation and proposition development, to execution.

Whether it is a ground-breaking business ecosystem for industrial waste management; or

a daring international growth strategy for a public sector agency; or

a leadership training program on disruptive innovation that attracted CNN's spotlight.
