The main thing that has caused companies to fail, in my view, is that they missed the future

Larry Page, CEO, Google

The core idea of Peloton Strategy is that the wicked problems are here to stay worldwide. Products and services aiming to solve these challenges have therefore a nearly unlimited demand.

About

Peloton creates smart growth. We work with companies to turn foresight into new products, services, processes and business models. We are results driven. We walk the walk, with companies that have had enough of plain predictions and hot air.

Right now everyone is looking for new sources of growth. We see that today’s growth comes from the combination of two disruptive forces –  resource scarcity and digital technology, the most powerful megatrends of our time. The demand for natural resources and energy is bypassing their supply for first time in history. Digital services turn industry after industry upside down. These megatrends will redefine consumer market value chains in the next five years.

Peloton is a selection of services for companies entering the future today. Peloton employes ten people, is powered by think tank Demos Helsinki and has  a five year track record working with market leaders in creating new business. We also host world’s leading smart-service startup incubator Peloton Club. Join the movement!
