Adjacent Space Innovation
Every business is hungry for growth. Yet for brands in mature, flat and competitive markets, it has never been harder to come by. The harsh reality is that most innovation efforts fail because they’re too slow, expensive or risky. But within closer reach are fast, cost-effective adjacent innovation opportunities, which often go unnoticed.

We think of these as residing in the “Overlooked Middle”—and it’s often the best place to innovate, extend your brand and grow.

The Overlooked Middle
Instead of leaping to high-risk, disruptive innovation, or sticking to low-reward optimization of your core business, tap adjacent opportunities to extend your brand and grow.
Where to Play?
How to Win?
All too often, brand extension into adjacent spaces is overlooked, despite its ability to deliver sustainable growth without big investment or change. The winning formula for conquering adjacent spaces starts by tapping the potential of your brand’s extendable equity and unleashing your organization’s long-overlooked assets.

We help you evaluate where to play, giving way to an adjacent innovation strategy that’s primed for growth.
