We do the job with ethics & passion

We are goal oriented & driven by RESULTS. 

We care about having a POSITIVE IMPACT on the planet and the society.

We have great AMBITION for your projects.

Our forte: get you out of your comfort zone

And we are also great at:

Platforms : our special speciality! Not just a daily special, but our long-standing one. B2B, B2C or G2C (Government to Citizen), aiming at improving operations in supply chain, or increasing trust and dialogue between stakeholders, or founding the next revolutionizing customer journey app, you name it…. This is what we do best. 

Innovation : Lucky us and lucky you, Flying Rhino is led by a visionary lady, who loves innovation. And our whole team thrives on innovation too. So we will help you innovate in your industry and support your most crazy  ideas.

Venture building : ok, so the venture studio concept was invented in the US, but we think we should leverage innovative proven ideas and adapt them to our needs in Europe : so we have decided to create the 1st venture studio specialised in platforms & sustainability, in order to improve our success rate in platform models that seem simple, but are highly complex.

Sustainability : if you wished to green wash, you are not at the right door, sorry. We partner with the Net Positive Lab think-tank which focuses on environmental & societal impact, and on accelerating the transition towards a global circular economy. We use all those specialised tools, and align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals in all our ventures.

Matching Entrepreneurship with Corporate culture :  many of our team members have years of experience in big corporates structures as well as in entrepreneurship & start-ups. So we know how it works and we adjust. But be sure that our entrepreneurial approach will allow you to work faster and get a fresh vision on your projects.  

Working internationally & remotely : talents can be found everywhere, and we are very committed to this diversity in our DNA, so we have built a team of people that are scattered across Europe, and that are used to working from anywhere. And of course, we are as efficient face to face, as virtually.
