FreedomLab is a strategy consultancy, cross-over innovation hub, and future studies think tank. Or perhaps: a constant redefinition of these formats. We facilitate organizations to anticipate their future by helping them to creatively redefine their present. We operate on the crossroads of creativity, technology and organisational design.
“Anticipate your future by redefining your present”
“Creating brand and innovation strategy through tailor-made co-creation programs”
FreedomLab Consultancy helps organisations redefine themselves in the light of changing consumer behavior. Based on continuous research into how new technologies influence the way in which consumers spend their time, money and energy, we co-create the organization’s new vision, purpose, strategy, products & services.
“Decode the future in order to unlock society’s potential”
FreedomLab Think tank is a group of young thinkers with diverse backgrounds: philosophy, economics, man-machine interaction, social science and innovation studies. This combination of perspectives allows us to shed new light on both current and future affairs. Our mission is to unlock society’s potential by decoding the future.
