Corporate Acceleration Program
Orange Sparkle Ball works with a large corporate innovation group to define, build and communicate results from a program that sources startups to solve business challenges. The ongoing engagement has involved defining process, creating events to engage the greater organization in the work and creating systematic processes to continuously communicate results. In addition to the work that supports the overall program, we also work to support the needs of individual pilots. This program has produced several promising multi-pilot tests with startups.
Orange Sparkle Ball worked with large corporate marketers to redefine the way their creative projects were structured. By maintaining a network of small groups of freelancers with specialized skillsets, Orange Sparkle Ball served as the central curation and management hub for project creation. This allowed for a distributed creative team that could be easily mobilized to create deliverables. KPIs were measured to show that the projects created through the distributed creative teams performed at least as well as projects created through a standard AOR relationship.
