OUR STORY
How we started and why
LEO launched the Global Innovation Platform in 2018 to give entrepreneurs, start-ups and small businesses a platform to be able to connect to corporates seeking the latest innovative solutions.
Our CEO Scott Sharp started LEO as he had a revolutionary solution but struggled to tell the right people within the right organisations about it. LEO aims to bridge the gap between start-ups and corporations, making innovation accessible to everyone.
LEO has grown from 5 innovations on the platform in 2012 to over 17,000 in 26 market sectors in 120+ countries.
LEO now works with some of the largest organisations in the world including BP, Fujitsu, IBM, M&S and more. 96% of our clients make commercial agreements following connections to innovations, making innovation more affordable.
