At Independents United we create

Revolution

Discontinuous growth from idea to execution

How we can help

We help you innovate your way to growth through an entrepreneurial approach to business transformation.

In a world where your industry is more likely to be disrupted by a new entrant than your biggest competitor, we can help your organisation act more like a startup.

Increasingly the best talent is found outside of the corporation. We can help you access that by building (strategically aligned) venturing programmes whichpay back from day one.
