Case study: Accorhotels

Startups sourcing and landscaping in hospitality for Accorhotels

Challenge & Context

Accorhotels needed to identify startups that can have a real business impact on the group’s key functions (marketing, f&b, in-room service, maintenance and energy).


We delivered a monthly startup sourcing based on a 12-criteria grid (Startup KPIs, AccorHotels KPIs, Transformation KPIs) + Quarterly maps for overview. The results have been shared within the company as a newsletter to create awareness in the teams of existing, local startups to work with. Partnership with two startups (Asia), Acquisition of one (Asia)


“I have worked with Innovation is Everywhere for learning expeditions in the US and Israel, trends reports on innovation trends from Asia, and startup sourcing to help AccorHotels move forward its business transformation. I enjoy both their capacity to detect new elements from their field trips and on-the-ground exploration, as well as their capability to link those findings with business objectives
