Our innovation framework for growth

Here’s the exact process we use to help innovation teams at global companies build and execute innovation programs that bring tangible results.

We work with your team to breakdown your goals, challenges, and constraints so we can determine where you want to go, and how we can help you get there.

Where do you need to focus so you can capture value (and returns) from your innovation initiatives? We help you map out new areas for opportunities to transform your business from what it is today to what it aspires to be tomorrow.

This is your “navigation system”. Together, we build a strategic roadmap that defines a clear, practical path forward to close the gap between your organization’s ideal state and current capabilities.

Runway does the heavy-lifting to find the right technologies and companies that will have the biggest impact on your organization.

Together, we take action by partnering, investing in, or acquiring the right startups.

Why chose Runway?

Tired of 300-page powerpoint decks, theory, and over-priced recommendations without the results to show? We’re the antithesis to big consulting. Our approach is iterative, lean, and generates tangible results for our clients.

We are problem fixers

Your problems are not cookie-cutter. Neither are our solutions. We work with your organization to address your very specific challenges, and guide you through the process of developing a solution that works for your business.

Transparency above all

No surprises. No annual commitments with limited business outcomes. No never-ending retainer fees. Our partnerships are fixed cost, fixed resource, and fixed deliverable meaning our projects work for you, your budget, and your procurement team.

We do what’s best for our clients

With us, you won’t feel pressure working with startups that don’t align with your goals (we don’t have equity stakes in startups so there’s no double dipping). Our track record shows we provide unbiased access to great companies, entrepreneurs and cross-industry experts.
