Job description
The Innovation Accelerator is a year round internal impact driven innovation program to identify and unlock existing potential within the organization.

We stay away from static content in Powerpoint and aim to create something that can actually be experienced: a prototype, telestration, video, animation or IoT (Internet of Things) solution. The program is characterized as agile, light weight, fast and is focused on ‘gut feelings’ instead of rationale.
