The Growth and Business Design team within Accenture Song is growing a phenomenal team of creative designers, strategists, venture architects and product developers around the globe.

What interests us

We are driven by creating impact and are looking for change makers who share our passion for growth. We are constantly asking ‘where next?’ and design strategies, propositions and businesses that impact the world in a positive and dynamic.

What we do

We work with clients to deliver impactful growth through our “3V” methodology, discovering white space, proving value and rapidly launching and amplifying the venture. Our methodologies are our unique advantage and require world-class individuals to create value utilising them.

  • Value - Rapidly develop and test growth portfolios and value propositions that change the game

  • Venture – Incubate, accelerate, and scale new businesses that redefine markets 

We work on big questions. We reimagine rather than optimize. We use human-centred design with a creative toolkit to deliver impact. We don’t work in one industry but across all of them, on corporate and on social challenges.
