WE ARE LOOKING TO MAKE A MEANINGFULL IMPACT



We operate from a firm belief in co-creation, sustainability, and integrity. And we believe great design makes the difference, for markets, for innovations, for people. Built on the principles of open innovation we embrace diversity in thinking, because that’s what makes things better.


Instead of working on innovation on our own, we join forces with commercial and academic experts. We operate like an embedded design team and make sure all required skills are on the decision table, which leads to smarter innovations and a faster time-to-market.

Working with Leaps

Leaps is constantly on the look-out for talent and expertise, so if you think you have something to bring to the table, we’re more than happy to hear your story.
