Mission

Enterprise Lab has the vision
to globally disrupt the mindsets of people
to evoke an attitude for success

Lucky people get opportunities…
Brave people take those opportunities…
But in the face of adversity it is winners that make opportunities.

In a world with ever-changing landscapes if you don’t adapt you will be left behind… success is a notion set on us by society; to achieve success you need passion, persistence, but even more important than these an attitude which reflects your actions.

Since 2011 Enterprise Lab has been working with people all over the world to disrupt their current behaviours and attitudes so they can achieve their aspirations.

We believe that a 1% change in attitude can lead to a 100% change in results.

Our ethos is based on Ideation, Innovation and Leadership all of which are core to succeed in ever changing landscapes… we disrupt through specific channels of content, courses and consultation.

About

Our journey

Since the global economic crisis in 2008 the world has changed; businesses have collapsed, people have lost their jobs and the local economic prosperity has dissolved leaving uncertainty and pain.

Confidence has been at an all-time low and this is reflected in the behaviour and ultimately the attitudes towards what people can do… this is why Enterprise Lab was launched.

Our work is based around developing processes and platforms that will disrupt the mindsets of people allowing them to instil more confidence through a change in their attitudes which in turn delivers results.

Katharina Joseph

Head of Content & Communication

Katharina Joseph

Katharina’s breakfast consists of curiosity and coffee, which make up her daily drivers. Lunch is being served with a combination of her two greatest passions art and travel, which made her found her own traveling art gallery Kajo Collection, which circles the globe to promote emerging artists. A perfect day ends with a dinner of superfood, sports and writing.

You may call it her daily routine, however her traveling, studying and working all over the place, fills each day with excitement. Her ability to embrace her surrounding and engage with the people who cross her path —simply listening to their stories and building up profound conversations, fills her with energy, positivity and make up another part of her vital nutrition. She is that kind of a person who stops at the middle of the street between two buildings in order to enjoy the sun.

That being said, Katharina believes that everything is connected and the magic of connectivity is the most valuable gift in life. Once we share a similar mindset or challenge each other’s perceptions we unlock our creativity and imagination. Capturing conversations, moments and stories, make her the Head of Content and Communication at Enterprise Lab, or quite simply the big Boss.

Matt Duggan

Head of Digital Marketing

Matt Duggan

Matt is our digital marketing obsessive. Think of him like a character from Mad Men, but with a laptop and the look of Lex Luther.

Believe it or not, Matt used to be a professional magician (yes, really). During his magical career, he performed at Buckingham Palace (twice) and was even flown to Abu Dhabi to work his magic at the launch of the Mercedes C-Class. While working events in the evenings, he started honing his online marketing skills during the day, initially to get more corporate gigs.

Jump forward a year or two and he was recognised for his work by some established digital marketing entrepreneurs. He started working with their marketing agencies to grow their clients's businesses. It was at this point that he disappeared from the world of magic (in a puff of smoke?) and set up his own business, generating targeted leads from social media advertising platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. And that is where we met him.

Now that we have successfully lured him into Enterprise Lab with chocolate, we don't really want to share him with anyone. We occasionally let him out of Enterprise Lab HQ to run his blog over at LeadGenSocial.com and his marketing agency at RoarLocal.com .

Jeremy Gobet

Lead Developer & Designer

Jeremy Gobet

Before the concept of DIY became fashion Jeremy aka Jay was already a big fan of it inventing all kinds of things with paperboard, sticky paper and stuff he found in his home. His curiosity to learn, explore and discover novel things lead him to find multiple ways to express his creative aspirations.

As a result, Jay blossomed into geek (also before it became fashion) and excelled in merging electronics and creativity, during an apprenticeship. However soon he had to realize that his affinity with the artistic world pushed him to change direction and move into software development. That’s why he studied information technology engineering.

While at University, Jay received a residency position. During this period, he worked on many IT development projects and with some start-ups. If you would ask Jay, which concepts he lives by; he would share the benefits of self-teaching, learning by doing and doing it yourself, with you. The combination of the three make him flourish in producing artworks, logos and website designs.

Jay always felt that it would be impossible for him to choose a position between engineer, designer, project manager or even a cook. He likes to be all of theses and excel beyond them.

That’s why he was determined to take part in a start-up project that can offer him the kind of personal and professional growth he seeks. Luckily, he moved to London and we are more than happy to have him on board as the Lead Developer & Designer at Enterprise Lab, being part of our team which seeks entrepreneurs to flourish.
