Lux + Imagine Labs

Architecting and enabling chasm crossing Growth Leaps™


Whether you’re Venture Capital, Private Equity, or Angel, you’re investing in everything from startups to multibillion-dollar portfolio companies that need to grow. And not that regular kinda just inching forward growth. The innovative, disruptive, chasm-crossing, exponential stuff. Welcome to Growth Leaps and Imagine Labs.

You can’t rely on historical data to innovate forwards, because it speaks to the past. There is no data to comprehensively prove the future, as it doesn’t exist yet. Companies need novel new thinking to move forward.

What do companies need right now specifically? How do they truly innovate in today’s rapidly changing marketplace where small disruptors can take down behemoths that have dominated for decades? Turns out, they’re not quite sure. They don’t truly sample their audiences; they simply create and see if it fits. Worse, they habitually force-fit products and services that fail, driving wasteful cost expenditures. They don’t endeavor to connect the disparate dots to surface chasm-crossing leaps. Rather, they approach the problem of eating an elephant one linear bite after another, merely adding different twists.

But when you’re investing in the future and looking to make 1+1=42 ( think Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ), this requires a different approach. Thinking outside the box now means we know the shape of the box can change dramatically, and we must hold this idea in our minds as we drive business forwards and deliver on core goals and objectives.

Enter Imagine Labs.

  • “When some of the biggest digital disruptors on the planet, like AIR BNB and UBER, choose to print magazines to cut through the digital clutter… you know the world is in flux”, says Chief Marketing Officer, Michael Chase.

    — BuzzFeed —
  • “As the impact of traditional advertising declines,” says Michael Chase, “and consumers who regularly use technology to do their research and shopping further shape and define our retail marketplace, brands must focus on ‘new media’ solutions, shopper marketing strategies and creating unique and richer connections between products and digital experiences; connecting print advertising, OOH, digital and augmented reality; and finally, fundamentally transforming marketing and media communications to cross-channel, participatory, interactive and two-way mediums.”

    — Wall Street Journal —
  • “Chase calls our new age the intersection of the Gutenberg Press and the Internet and says when digital and physical work together there is an explosive, dynamic resonance in the marketplace.”
