You know those companies where, after you propose a brilliant new idea, you wait for three weeks—then another three weeks—and nothing happens? Well, SproutUp isn’t one of them. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
At SproutUp, the online platform that’s helping emerging product creators transition from early-stage to successful brands, good proposals come to life—fast. “We discuss a new idea, and the next day we are implementing it,” says technology builder Peter Andersen.
Whether it’s helping emerging product creators improve their projects (think: the ones funded on Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and the like) or grow their user bases, SproutUp’s team members work to find innovative approaches—knowing that these approaches could be used by the company very soon.
“I value seeing my ideas and contributions thoughtfully considered and if accepted, quickly put into action,” shares Beth Watson, community builder. By involving everyone in this speedy implementation process, SproutUp inspires a great amount of employee ownership.
While independence is highly valued, SproutUp employees are by no means separated from their co-workers. “The SproutUp vibe is super collaborative, and we’re constantly throwing out ideas to see what sticks,” adds Watson. And because everybody’s a generalist at heart, they always have plenty to bring to the table.
Ideas and contributions may come from different people, but, in the end, the entire SproutUp team is working toward the shared mission of redefining commerce for emerging products.
