Get started

Get to know your futures and implications

As a leader, you have trend information available on new technologies, demographic transitions in different markets, changes in consumer behavior and global megatrends. While there is no shortage of trend information, what does all of these trends and hypes have to do with your business environment? What are the implications? What is relevant, what is not and what really changes the value chains or operating models from your customers’ perspective?

Demola projects help you explore the future impacts and driving forces. You’ll understand the future requirements for your products or services and explore changes in consumer behavior. We’ll help you demo your future-proof business.

Inspiring deliverables from nerdy demos to eureka moments

Stay ahead – what do your customers want next? How does ethical and sustainable consumerism affect your business environment? Which trend-driven innovations are potential, relevant game changers?

The result of a Demola project is a fact-based vision of the future, a solution to a future problem, or a demo of a future service.

It brings future to life.

Demola Project – what it is

Demola is an internationally awarded service for companies and organizations, contextualizing and demonstrating driving forces and opportunities of the future. The secret sauce is in harnessing international university students and generation Z as future experts and change-makers.

It’s a 3-month project with clear structure and milestones. It’s NOT a desk study, student work or trend report. Project delivery consists of the work of a student team tailored to your needs, the participation of your own staff and selected stakeholders, and the consultancy of a Demola future analyst. Demola takes responsibility for project management, clarification of the deliverables and the total quality of the project, clearing you the space to concentrate probing your business’ future.
