THE PROB
LEM

THE PROBLEM

The traditional way of innovation development is fundamentally broken.

The average development time for new products in fast-moving consumer goods today is 15-22 months.

Complex products and services even require significantly longer intervals. Nevertheless, 90% of all new product launches fail.

What is even worse, a large part of the actual innovation potential and ideas in companies never sees the light of day.

Summed up: Extremely high costs, slow processes and no active involvement of real customers leads to very high flop rates.

OUR SOLU
TION

OUR
SOLUTION

INNOWEEK® is the established solution to quickly deliver validated results for your innovation project.

Never has it been possible to provide valid solutions within such a short time. Together with our clients we work in highly concentrated, extremely short and intensive work phases with a clear goal.

Instead of spending months in meetings and discussions, we focus our work on maximizing benefits and concrete output.

We were the first to combine all relevant areas of innovation development under one roof - from creative ideation and vision development to strategic guidance, design, product development, engineering, communication, and sales implementation.

Working that way does not only lead to maximum team motivation and personal commitment, but also to exceptional results.

Moreover, it reduces the flop rate of your business model, product or service drastically. Having your product vision tested within an INNOWEEK® reduces the usual development period of months or years to a few weeks only.

THE RESULTS!

Powerpoint is evil! In order to create real added value for our clients, we focus on delivering concrete results:

tangible prototypes, testable products, measurable services, understandable processes and their successful market introduction, instead of one-hundred-page concept papers and theoretical essays.

From idea to market in a few weeks - a speed that is becoming increasingly necessary today and the key to competitive advantage.

Seven out of nine of the most innovative companies in Germany have already worked with Granny&Smith that way.

Frequently asked questions

What can I expect from an Innoweek?

A lot, but the answer depends on YOUR IDEA. Every project is completely different because no two ideas are the same - even if they are built in the same industry. The Innoweeks all have in common that you have an idea and want to bring it to the market in the fastest way possible. 

We had phenomenal Innoweeks where we were able to build a new innovative product and set up the whole company, gave it a name, a corporate identity, a campaign, build a website, and so on. In other Innoweeks, we were happy to create a first User Interface prototype for a new software product (heck, that thing was complicated).  

The key takeaway here is that we know that one size DOES NOT fit all, which is why we curate custom strategies for each of our clients to provide their exact needs. Our goal is to skyrocket their product and services into the stratosphere, and we'll do whatever it takes to achieve that goal.

Can you guarantee results?

We offer guarantees for all of our Innoweek outcomes. Whether it's a prototype, a new product with a campaign, compelling storytelling, or just a 3D Rendering of your product vision, we put our money where our mouth is: if we don't hit our agreed-upon targets, we don't get paid. 

You see, most innovation agencies talk a good game, but when it is all said and done, they don't use the very same services they prescribe to their own processes, which is a HUGE telltale sign to run for the hills! Anyhow. If you're looking for an innovation agency that's worth its weight.….. You should go here and see all the nice things our clients have said about the work we do. (https://www.provenexpert.com/lars-behrendt/)

Why is Granny&Smith the best Innovation Agency?

Why is water wet? No, but seriously. Instead of using this little section of content to spam you with humble brags, let us just say this... Agencies lie; numbers and results don't.

So instead of trying to convince you, we're the best innovation agency around….here are the stats:
- 7 out of 9 of the most innovative German companies have built their products together with Granny&Smith
- We've been working for some of the well-known brands in the world
- We should have started to collect reviews earlier, but at least there are now 132 reviews that speak for themselves(average of 4.7 stars)
- 38 patents created for our customers(they always belong to them, after we've done a joint Innoweek!)
- Over 650 Clients served
- #1 Brand for innovation acceleration
- We have been 15 Years at the market (and we are willing to do another 15 Years)

Do you work with big or small companies?
We don't ask for the size. We ask if you are serious about your idea. Are you convinced? Are you on fire? Are you ready to create a product that makes some real impact? Then we can work with you. Click here to book your call.

Do you want to plug into a team of innovators, digital strategists, designers, engineers, and developers who will help you make your product or service a reality and make the kind of impact that will leave your customers shouting from the rooftops? We can work with you. 

Do you understand the value of spending one week instead of years? We can work with you.
It doesn't matter if you're a big or small company. Our clients range from small, local businesses with five or fewer employees to large multinationals.

How do I know that I will get a return on my investment?

Because we put our money where our mouth is, and we make BIG guarantees that other innovation agencies don't. Go check out our individual service pages for more information on what guarantees we offer.

What does an Innovation Agency actually do?

A good Innovation agency is not taking part in that guessing game whether you innovation idea is good or bad. Instead, we build tangible products and go to the market in record time and let the results do the talking. 

Part of an innovation agency's strategy should involve design or engineering, and a compelling go-to-market strategy to ensure a product is really seen at the markets and results are flushing in. We do all of that but, unlike other agencies, the Granny&Smith team isn't just focused on maintaining that perfect balance. Our goal is to crush your competitors and turn ideas into reality and make them a success.
