Innovation and change
Innovation is developing ideas that are changing our world.
Innovation is a way of doing something better than ever.
Innovation is not an activity. It`s a way of doing business.
To be innovative means:
- to search for new solutions instead of
copying existing ones;
- to imagine the future and create a plan to reach your goals, rather than
think only about the present;
- to treat new technologies as
solutions, not as problems;
- to foresee and create tendencies,
instead of following them;
- to seek and employ creative talent, not
Innovation leads to change. This change is uncomfortable.
Difficult. Risky. Unpredictable. Unknown. And absolutely necessary.
Because the most precious resource in today`s world is to embrace
as a way of doing business and profit from it.
Nextdoor helps such change and innovation happen.

Projects and partners
The following are examples of the innovation projects we have developed so far:
- Together with Bulstrad Life we created My Little Treasure
– a product which aims at changing completely the way life insurance
for children is offered. We engaged as our partners private kindergartens and schools
from the country. We created coloring books with stickers
which explain the meaning of saving money and healthcare to the kids.
We replaced the difficult and tedious insurance terminology with clear
and understandable language.
- We aided the bridal shop Atelier Voila!
to implement a new market approach by making the bride the centre of
attention, not the gown. From creating interior design solutions to offering a
variety of ways to buy or rent a dress and the communication with the
bride to be – everything is organized in a way which makes this moment

to look at insurance and banking from a different perspective and we
analyzed in detail what the word “innovation” means for the holding
here, right now. We did a similar provocation with the management of Metro Bulgaria.
