Because innovation is an indicator of competitive advantage and economic growth in most successful start-ups and enterprises, cultivating innovation within organizations is a hallmark of Opportu’s services.

The ability to identify unmet needs, see what is missing, and imagine and develop solutions is a skill that is difficult to measure. The Berkeley Innovation Index (BII) offers powerful ways to measure innovation capability in a holistic sense.

Opportu is unique in being able to offer both the BII to its clients and to provide the coaching that addresses the gaps it identifies whether those gaps are in:
Strategy and Leadership, Organizational Culture, Operations and Measures, Mindset of an organization’s people, or Tactical measures.

Breakthrough data analytics: Measure, develop and upgrade your team’s innovation.


Every great company started out with passion and a dream. As companies become huge enterprises, they sometimes lose that original spark that fuels innovation at all levels. We work with enterprises to pinpoint areas of opportunity in their innovation landscape, then co-design programs that enable inspiration, passion and success to “start up again” across a team, a division or an entire enterprise.
