Democratising Innovation

Today’s digital tools have democratised abilities in many domains, such as photography, music production, or even data analysis. But where is our tool for Innovation? We still rely on siloed solutions for exploration (Pinterest), ideation (Miro) or management of our ideas (Spigit).

The all-in-one innovation platform

Introducing: Augmented Thinking – The all-in-one innovation platform for teams and individuals. Our platform supports a seamless workflow throughout the entire innovation process.

Berlin based startup

We’re glad to be supported by Atomleap, Berlin’s High-Tech Accelerator. 👉 Read our interview with them.


We are recent graduates of the Global Innovation Design master’s programme, jointly run by the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. While our backgrounds vary from visual communication to mechanical engineering and architecture, our interests are even more diverse. We are life-long learners, passionate about social and environmental impact, and like to ask the difficult questions.

Our mission is to help people make an impact on all the pressing challenges of today and tomorrow. We believe an open and collaborative approach is key to identify leverage points and develop market ready solutions.

Research & Development


Explore knowledge visually. Reveal insights intuitively.

How we choose to look at things determines what we can see: reading glasses, binoculars, telescopes, mirrors and so on. Augmented Thinking is developing new ways of looking at our world.

A digital platform to augment the collective innovation process. Augmentation means to combine the best of AI and human abilities to uncover deep insights intuitively.

Problem: The Intelligence gap

Organisations and individuals alike are overwhelmed by the exponential growth of data. While we see breakthroughs in machine intelligence, human intelligence gains remain stagnant. *

Garry Kasparov’s Law states a weak human + machine + better process surpasses a stronger machine, as well as stronger human + machine + inferior process. A process we call “Augmenting Collective Intelligence” will close the gap.

Human + Human + Machine Intelligence

Our vision

Our vision is to enable everyone to solve problems by making all knowledge actionable. Our first mission is a human-centric, open innovation platform: We consolidtate innovative projects and break them down into their individual components for you to explore and remix into new groundbreaking solutions.
