Transferring innovation into real products is difficult. In rapidly changing markets it has become crucial to think more agilely and innovate faster than ever before. The bigger and busier a company gets, the harder it is to keep moving fast and attract the right talents to discover new business models and market opportunities and act upon them. That's why we've created Safe2Start.
CREATING OUTSTANDING COMPANIES
Everything we do we do to support the perfect conditions to build companies that not only act for profit but more importantly tackle real world problems. We want to create the best possible conditions to build businesses that not only provide a way to make a living but to change the way we live.
Safe2Start consists of a team of people with different backgrounds that have two things in common:
- We have worked in and for large organizations but have experience with small ventures (like startups) as well.
- We firmly believe in the strength of Lean approaches to the building of businesses
Safe2Start was started in 2015 by Carl Danneels as a Lean Startup Coaching curriculum aimed at people with an enterpreneurial drive that were contemplating to leave their employer and set up their own business. Safe2Start has now evolved into an organization that is helping corporate companies to keep these high potentials on board by offering them exciting and rewarding intrapreneurial challenges.
Safe2Start is open to engage with any corporate or SME organisation to whom it is convinced it can provide value. There are however a number of specific focus areas in which Safe2Start is specialized:
- Customer Facing Business Intelligence
- IOT & Big Data
- Blue Economy

Anthony's entrepreneurial instincts and charisma, complemented by his effective and impressive career development whilst at Deloitte really make him stand out from the crowd. He has a solid understanding of Lean & Agile methodologies and technology best practices and applies these regularly. He is comfortable driving projects as a manager.
A company that pushes process optimisation, can also be very innovative and agile. It does not need to be a choice between business efficiency and agility. Successful companies aim for both. Jean understands the complementarity of both perfectly and realises synergies between the ‘chaotic’ Startup and the ‘rigid’ multinational.
