Together with your innovation coaches, you use a blend of experiential components − like videos, role plays, digital learning devices, and so on − in an active, dynamic learning environment. The goal is to apply what you learn immediately and to develop skills that can be used in your job right away.

The toolbox of the programme

The interactive lectures by senior Solvay faculty make you step back to absorb and internalize the fundamentals of the complex landscape of innovation. The live case studies with successful entrepreneurs and investors provide a framework for how these best practices are applied.

The mix of relevant, applicable theory and real-life practical insights makes this program tailor-made for professionals who are interested in going beyond generating creative ideas.  We’ll tell you how to turn them into successful businesses by developing core intrapreneurial innovation leadership, strategy, culture, and process capabilities. Meetings with innovative start-up companies is part of the programme.

We complete the programme with what we call an ‘Innovation Lab’. This real-time feedback tool allows you to rapidly gain insights from Solvay coaches and faculty, as well as from each other. The Innovation Labs enhance your learning experience and anchor the programme’s content.


Our faculty is best-in-class. Not only do these teachers and coaches come from leading business schools and universities from around the world, they also offer you the real-world business experience that counts. Their corporate positions, board memberships, and consulting experiences bring a whole new perspective to the classroom.

Solvay has developed one of the best executive innovation leadership and intrapreneurship programmes in the market. You will work with a diverse team, receive daily feedback from experienced mentors, and pitch like a pro at the end of the week.
