Above, you’ll find a short video giving you a brief impression of how we work.
HatRabbits is an agency for business creativity and innovation
We believe that everybody is creative and that any problem can be solved. Creative thinking is a skill that can be learnt and that, with practice, can be improved.
We help organisations to find creative solutions to their challenges. We structure the creative process and help you generate smart solutions with a firm support base. We organise and facilitate interactive workshops on business creativity and teach participants to look at their situation from a different perspective. We stimulate people to go past obvious solutions and help organisations realise positive change.
Business creativity makes organisations more resilient. Being able to quickly find alternative solutions gives you the superpower to efficiently deal with unforeseen problems.

Where does the name HatRabbits come from?
HatRabbits refers to the puzzling act of unexpectedly pulling a rabbit out of a top hat. Our analogy for finding that magical idea. The Eureka moment, Columbus’ egg …the ‘out-of-the-box’ solution everybody is looking for.
We do not specialise in one particular field. We likely know little about your field of expertise, let alone that we can tell you how to do your job. What we cán help you with is with óur expertise: business creativity. We’d be honoured to help you structure your creative process and find more sustainable solutions.
We developed our own software. Brightstorming is an easy to use web application that allows teams to brainstorm more productively. Using Brightstorming, teams will generate more original ideas while saving time. Timers, clear examples and powerful thinking techniques make generating ideas fun and easier than ever. Our objective digital facilitator makes sure that absolutely anyone can now hold an efficient brainstorm session.
