Expedition

by Healthspottr

Because the best ideas inspire action.

Ideate. Activate. Iterate.

Expedition offers a guided trek between where your business is today, and where you want to take it tomorrow. We convert your best ideas and aspirations into game-changing, financially-viable business solutions with speed and agility.

Why?

Current approaches to innovation often get stuck in the idea stage, bogged down by an endless cycle of design thinking, never catalyzing action, never generating impact. Expedition does more than generate ideas. We will map an action plan to grow your organization’s topline revenue and activate incremental revenue streams to compound the value created for you, your organization and your customers.

What?

Using our proven framework for problem-solving and a network of carefully selected cross-industry experts, Expedition will guide you to rapidly identify, prototype and test new ideas and concepts that are inspired by your growth aspirations, but also grounded in your immediate business needs.

We validate this problem-solving framework with our unique data analytics and a cutting-edge modeling tool to assess and mitigate unnecessary risk along the way. Finally, we will map the tangible steps for operationalizing your new business solutions, so that your innovation journey may continue with viability — and speed.
