Link is an innovation and learning hub rooted in the Indo-French startup ecosystem with a legacy of 20 years empowering entrepreneurs and organisations.
We design cultural shifting intrapreneurship trainings & open innovation programs, rooted in design thinking methodology, while supporting the larger startup ecosystem.
We are advisors, connectors and facilitators. Our role is to drive the teams, timebox the program, instill the right mindset, link them with the right resources, experts and provide the right frameworks.
Developing an innovation mindset is a continuous process that integrates individuals’ potential to organizational and business goals. Innovation is a matter of culture, not technology: our programs help organizations focus on people.

Innovation is a matter of execution
Accelerating the time- and cost-to-market, we believe in execution and in learning by doing. Our projects aim to put learning into practice in real life, fastrack execution at the speed of business and making faster decisions.
Creating a cultural shift for transformation
In organizations, leaders and teams need to adopt the entrepreneurial mindset towards change and uncertainty to form small, collaborative agile teams. Transformation comes from a minority convincing the majority.
Creating meaningful impact
To find the vision that will make you relevant, come up with solutions to problems that actually matter. Focus on a problem worth solving for your organisation, for your end-users, for your community, for yourself.
Anchoring in the heart of an ecosystem
We know the power of collective intelligence. Innovation does not happen in silos, we believe that for innovation to make a real impact, different communities need to come together for a transformational journey.
