This is Cosmos Collective

We’re Cosmos Collective, an innovation & experiment studio based in Antwerp. We help companies accelerate innovation and drive growth. We do this by validating ideas at an early stage and using growth marketing principles to boost revenue.



Why did we start Cosmos Collective?

Too often we see new ideas being broken down to classic Excel sheets where the focus is on numbers and revenue instead of market fit. With little to no customer involvement it’s hard to be successful. Why? Because either nobody is waiting for this ‘solution’ or it solves the wrong problem.

Enter Cosmos Collective. We help companies during the innovation process by guiding them in validating their business ideas at an early stage. Thanks to our rapid experimentation process, we gather actionable customer insights. We leverage learnings to pivot solutions across experience, business model & technology towards success. Once validated, we help scale these ideas by using growth marketing principles to boost revenue.

Why clients work with us?

Because we’re different.

Actionable innovation

We’re a pragmatic strategic partner. We provide ad hoc innovation support and help teams take action. We’re your feet on the street.


Everything we do is data-driven. Through experimentation, we replace gut feeling with hard, behavior-driven data.

Lean startup method

We bring ideas to market by keeping it simple and avoiding long development cycles. This way we cut back the corporate innovation process from 2 years to 12 weeks. We go fast. Can you keep up?

Rapid experimentation

We break down your innovation ideas into small, testable assumptions which we test through measurable experiments. Let’s get that evidence!

Objective partner

Innovation & growth are driven by value. If we can’t find market-fit then that is value in itself. Less budget wasted.

No-code tooling

We spend our time on testing and learning, not on building the best-looking MVP.
