In a client-agency relationship, Springtime often enters projects as an entrepreneurial partner. Apart from fee-based projects, we are open to alternative rewarding systems in order to help our startup client in the early stages of his business. For successful innovation, some guts is required, both from entrepreneur and consultancy.
As a design consultancy, Springtime is continuously submerged in creativity and innovation. We follow latest trends and technologies and monitor developments in every aspect of society.
Sometimes, a promising idea comes up that we don't find the proper client for. The idea is then first developed in-house, up to a point where we can test-market it. When results and market feedback are positive, the idea is then brought into a new venture, allowing for external investments and knowledge partners. This has resulted in LEEV Mobility and Springtime Labs.
LEEV Mobility (2011) is involved in the development and marketing of innovative light electrical vehicles for individual mobility in short and medium range. Applications include inner city mobility, commercial services, and leisure activity. All vehicles are based on proprietary and patented technologies in the field of motor control, battery management and energy storage. LEEV currently has 2 products in the market: Mantys, a 4-wheeled transporter and Jack, a foldable electric steps scooter.
Springtime/Labs (2015) is fully focused on the massively expanding area of connected products. Springtime has a long history of designing and building solutions that fill market needs for global brands. In Labs, we work with both startups and mid stage companies, building the next great connected product companies. Given our history, we especially take a great interest in connected solutions in mobility. Besides a regular agency model, we apply this same expertise to groundbreaking products and teams in exchange for either shared revenue or equity. Springtime/Labs is not a think tank. We are a DO tank: full-range design services and prototyping.
