New Ventures & Propositions
Unlock new possibilities in retail with our new venture programmes
Putting customers at the heart of your learning
We know that anyone can put together the mechanics of a physical retail space. Be it a design agency, a staffing agency or an in-house team. But not everyone will give you access to the same level of customer centricity, allowing you to record, see and digest insights in real-time and take action from them.
When we deliver a new venture or retail proposition for your customers, we don’t just create the space and leave it to run itself. We are constantly tweaking elements for further testing and interrogating customer intent to give your brand maximum understanding of what they like and don’t like about your experiment. We know that it’s only with this knowledge that you can determine the success or failure of your programme and take learnings forward for the future.
Unique, turnkey solutions
Using our unique, turnkey solutions, we help you improve your in-store experience, developing innovative strategies that get to the heart of what your brand, your customers – and your future customers – want:
Physical pilots & experiments
We help create the mindset and environment that's needed to successfully innovate in retail, giving you the time and distance you need to trial concepts before letting us roll it out en masse, or you take it back in-house.
Pioneering a new venture with Henkel

We’ve partnered with Henkel to help them deliver a new venture – a customer experience centre called Bricoteca. Our expertise and world-leading turnkey solutions allowed us to to Henkels new venture from the strategy page to the real world in record time, enabling them to introduce different retail formats and start tracking results faster! Deploying Bricoteca outlets in several locations across the UK, we created a complete programme of work to help Henkel make a fast, cost-effective impact with their target customers, providing a unique space to incubate their ideas from concept to scaleability, to truly understand the viability of their venture in this market.
