Meet Sharkbite Innovation

Four principles Sharkbite takes seriously when combining sustainability with profitability.

Sharkbite Innovation is taking the UN Sustainable Development Goals and helping you make them profitable for your business. Here is what we stand for:

  1. We believe in innovation based on “shark bite problems” as a basis for sustainable and profitable business.

  2. We use the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations as a compass for innovation.

  3. We leverage the power of innovative talents and entrepreneurs worldwide, to select teams in hubs around the world to solve challenges from different angles.

  4. We offer methodologies, knowledge, brainpower, our network and bridge-building, with a high level of transparency and commitment.

We believe in innovation based on “shark bite problems” as a basis for sustainable and profitable business.


Pressure from the market, regulations and changes in customer and employee behavior have already forced organizations to rethink their understanding of their role as an organization. Or taking it one step further: If profitability and rentability are not the only core purposes of a company any more, then what else could be the genuine purpose of an organization? How can organizations be successful and simultaneously have a truly positive impact on the world?


We call these essential questions “shark bite problems”. To truly make an impact on the world, we need to think bigger, we need to take a significant bite out of the worlds biggest problems. We need to be sharks. Addressing shark bite problems has tremendous impact for: pioneering something radically new; being successful in the long run; attracting talented employees and investors in the future; and organizations that succeed in answering these questions, will solve shark bite problems. ​

We use the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations as a compass for innovation.


The good thing, that organizations don’t need to look far to find problems to solve. They don’t need to reinvent the wheel. The United Nations have developed a clear concept of sustainability – the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.


The United Nations has defined 169 concrete targets linked directly to the Global Goals. Many players in the world use these as a compass for innovation – and so do we. They are a guide on our way to a long-term successful and sustainable world. Every organization, every company has a responsibility to define their role by incorporating the SDGs goals into their strategy. Based on the 17 SDGs we support organizations to pick the problem that most matters to their organization, that can yield the maximum impact and help them to work towards a sustainable solution. We also walk the talk, and are constantly working on our contribution towards those goals ourselves.

We leverage the power of innovative talents and entrepreneurs worldwide, to select teams in hubs around the world to solve challenges from different angles.


Innovation and sustainability are the most important factors for future business success. Thus, our work is focused on the triangle of Profit, Sustainability and Innovation. It is our goal to deliver innovative and profitable business (models) to our customers which give purpose for everyone in the organization and have positive impact on sustainability.


We have over 15 years’ of experience in innovation management and have uncovered a common organizational innovation bias. Organizations fail to build radically new solutions in-house. Because no one builds a house and demolishes it at the same time. Additionally, most solutions for the problems we are talking about - worlds pressing problems - probably won't be developed in Western Europe, because the problems are simply not urgent enough for us. We believe that we need to take the problem solving and innovation to the core of where the problem exists.

This is where our network of international innovation hubs kicks in. We leverage the power of innovative talents and entrepreneurs worldwide from Africa to Asia, from India to South America, who are close to the defined challenges and therefore will be able to create solutions that cannot be developed in-house. We also make use of different cultures and habits, and select teams in different hubs at the same time to offer solutions from a range of different perspectives. By doing so, we can be supported by our partners worldwide, who have startup-, student-, developers- and talent-networks themselves.

We offer methodologies, knowledge, brainpower, our network and bridge-building, with a high level of transparency and commitment.

We are experts in innovation methods and tools, and have years of experience in innovation management and venture building. We will use this knowledge to support the active teams worldwide, and to build the bridge to our customers teams at the same time.


We are aware that a vision like ours can only be based on a very high level of trust. Indeed, we take responsibility seriously – not only for our planet, but also for our customers, our business partners and the results our work can yield. 100% transparency, fairness and commitment are the core rule of our work - within our business and yours.


We are committed to changing the world for the better. Are you a shark? Now is the time to become one. Join the movement.
