We meet you, our corporate partners, wherever you are in your innovation journey. Whether it’s seeking to identify new opportunities, validating those in-market, or making the decision to build solutions in house, spin out new ventures, or partner with startups through a corporate accelerator, we can help.
We are a hybrid corporate venture studio + VC firm that evolves the traditional management consulting model to turn ideas into action, not just strategize in the clouds. We invest alongside our corporate partners to make success real, not theoretical.
What Our Clients Say About Us
Together with American Family Insurance, we validated, built, and launched Relay platform as a spin-out startup.
Relay began as a collaboration between our innovation team and Highline Beta. We realized the potential Relay held to raise efficiencies and effectiveness for our whole industry and spun it off. Now we are excited to witness the rapid market adoption of this elegant — and independent — cloud-based solution. There is no question complex risk transfers, in reinsurance or insurance, can benefit from the boost into modernity that Relay offers.
Together with AB InBev we built the award-winning 100+ Sustainability Accelerator, resulting in multiple success stories.
Highline Beta helped bring our idea for a new corporate accelerator to life. They worked with us to make the 100+ Sustainability Accelerator world-class, sourcing and selecting great startups and providing mentorship and guidance throughout. Highline Beta understands how corporations and startups work, and knows how to set up winning conditions and measure progress. They’ve proven to be the ultimate universal translator for ensuring success.
We worked with Colgate Palmolive to support their transformational growth initiative that included the discovery and validation of several high potential initiatives and the execution of a pilot.
Highline Beta led the discovery and validation of several growth opportunities for us. They worked quickly and focused on tangible results. We now have several high-growth business opportunities that we’re pursuing, with new business models and an expanded focus on delivering great services to our customers as we work to reimagine a healthier future for all people, their pets, and our planet.
