About us


Innovation Ambassadors is a business design and innovation strategy company. Our mission is to enable organizations and teams to innovate faster and more effectively by navigating successfully from first idea to profitable business.

Our story

We were part of technolgy driven corporations for many years: from working in production environments in boiler suits to holding presentations in front of top management as part of our consultant jobs. We have seen innovation initiatives born and die. We experienced the complexity to innovate in B2B organizations and learned what it takes to successfully build up new (digital) businesses in corporate environments. After several years of driving innovation for Siemens and its customers, we decided that we want to share our experience & know-how in a fresh way.
