We are driven by data and research, innovate with intelligence and intuition, and execute with commitment and assurance - The Start Smart is the catalyst. We envisage a future where humans and technology work together as an ecosystem to build, create and do great things.
At the very core of The Start Smart is our people. We are passionate professionals, with diverse backgrounds, sharing a common desire to explore, unearth and unlock. We celebrate individuality as much as we do excellence, constructive criticism as much as we do collective conformance, and integrity as much as we do winning.
Inspired by the simplicity and harmony in the complexity from bustling street corners from around the world, The Start Smart challenges the complexity of the current workplace to inspire and empower simplicity. The teams at The Start Smart respect the traditional, whilst evolving the ecosystems that surround us. As we become more interconnected, globalised and informed, it will be humans that are at the centre of evolution and innovation.
Our Human first approaches combine experienced leaders, futurists and disruptors to create a completely different approach to organisational support services. Effectively, we want to change the way functions are performed, research is executed, technologies are built and knowledge is shared to usher in a new era of collaborative working and service experience for leaders.
