About the agency

We’re a Melbourne (Australia) & New York based innovation agency. Formed by corporate innovation practitioners, our mission is to help enterprises create the Innovation muscles necessary to survive in the new world order. Our model helps prevent disruption from startups, it helps organisations build ambidexterity, speed and foresight. Critically, it’s a model proven through practice. Radiocarbon’s key difference: We’re practitioners, not consultants. We’re here to see this through with clients shoulder to shoulder, down to the ugly details and execution. 

Work with real Transformation Practitioners.

Radiocarbon was formed to provide a more evidence-based, strategically informed model for dealing with disruption – one that we couldn’t find during our own corporate careers.

We experienced, over many years, a gap open up between Technology and our Organisations. We were there as barriers to entry dissolved and startups flooded our markets, as the power shifted to those with the Data, not the Infrastructure. We were there when we realised our assets may in fact also be liabilities. We realised that we were experiencing the change from the Industrial Age to the Information Age, and that the incumbents had too few answers to it.

In our corporate careers, our role was to find solutions. Test them. iterate them. implement them, make them work. And through our trials, failings and successes, we were able to establish a framework that has formed the basis of our agency.
