Sustainability: Creating long-lasting impact together!

We believe the key to innovative, impact-driven long-lasting solutions begins with the collaboration and support of our partners, clients, and teams.


Deplastify the Planet (DTP)

We tackle challenges using a user-centered approach; and ask ourselves: how might we create a solution that responds to the user’s needs while being economically and environmentally sustainable?

Every semester, the ‘Deplastify The Planet’ program brings together students with local start-ups, NGOs, middle-sized companies, and global organizations to form a single ecosystem for a more sustainable future.

Making organizations ready for the future

Think Tanks have proven to be a fantastic tool to create and share knowledge. We decided to push this methodology to the next level and create formats, where we mix trend and strategic analysis, while iterating on constant explorations and interactions with peers and experts. This format is leading to direct action and tangible outcomes for our clients.
We call it a do-tank.
