Client testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say

Maintaining a high level of creative and innovative research in plant breeding is essential for the Dutch biotechnology company KeyGene N.V. The two-day Creative Thinking and Innovation Workshop gave us new concepts and tools to assist management and employees in their creative and innovative thinking and also in improving our own works council daily work.

Dr. Diana Rigola, Scientist


Our Blue Ocean Strategy project with Six Paths resulted in internalizing new tools and ways of thinking, followed by successfully launching innovative products targeted at under-addressed customer groups. I was in particular impressed by the depth and thoroughness of their approach to the subject matter, creating tangible added value for us as their clients. It made a difference for us and warmly recommend their work.

Paul Markovits, Marketing Director


Continuum of innovation is key in a startup. The lean startup process is always at the verge of new products development. Fast prototyping and validation of concepts must become a religion. Hence, when in the field, it is good to get someone with an external point of view who can take one step behind before you make the big jump. This is what Six Paths is all about. Supporting growth and helping you staying the course are the main assets they will bring to you.

Georges Caron, CEO
