Envisioning and testing future enterprises

In the currently turbulent and increasingly opportunity-rich world, CEOs, policy makers, nonprofit leaders, start-up founders, governments and executives require new enterprise capabilities. 

Centre for Future Enterprise (CFE) partners with enterprises of all sizes to design and test possible futures enterprises to progress economic and social well-being now and into the future.  

Working with large incumbents to emerging start-ups, internationally listed corporations, to governments and regional nonprofit charity, CFE helps current and future leaders navigate a fast-emerging new world, differentiating necessity from distracting noise. 

 CFE research focuses on four themes and the nexus between these themes:  

  • Entrepreneurial enterprise
  • Digital enterprise
  • Social-purpose enterprise
  • Robust enterprise
