Springwise is the leading, global innovation publisher for positive and sustainable change
Who are we?
Springwise is the leading global innovation publisher for positive and sustainable impact. Established more than 20 years ago as a tech-focused blog as the internet, social platforms and Silicon Valley exploded into life, Springwise has evolved to become a champion of innovative thinking across sectors and geographies. High tech or lo-fi, we give oxygen to early-stage start-ups trying to solve the world’s biggest challenges.
What is innovation that matters?
An innovation is a new idea, product or method that looks to solve a problem. Innovation that matters solves problems and improves people’s lives.
Why focus on start-ups?
Focusing our reporting on start-up enterprises means we are always horizon scanning for the latest thinking on how to tackle the most pressing issues the world faces both in terms of sustainability and the planet, societal issues such as financial inclusion, gender and sexual equality, and the future of our cities and workplaces.
Start-ups by their very nature are innovating to offer the market something new or a fresh iteration on what’s come before, which provides us with a rich seam of inspiring content. Taken on their own, our stories make for uplifting reading, which is a welcome antidote to the negative line often taken by mainstream media outlets. For many in our audience, our innovation stories are not an end point, they act as an early signal of what is likely to impact their business or organisation, or as inspiration for their own thinking.
How do we source our innovation stories?
Our editorial team has a variety of sources and relationships we draw on for information, including universities and business schools, venture capitalists, incubators, intergovernmental organisations and NGOs.
How do we work with commercial partners?
Each month we compile Future Now, a report featuring 10 start-ups, themed to align with our clients’ main areas of interest. We find and curate the ideas most likely to impact their business in the near future, which is of key strategic importance to leaders tasked with driving change within their organisations or fostering an innovation mindset. We also offer bespoke services.
We collaborate with other likeminded organisations
We take pride in working with purpose-driven partners to cross-promote work and create new, valuable connections.
We believe in business as a force for good
