Velo Labs is our best-kept secret. It took over a decade to admit we even had one.
Great minds love a challenge, and this is where we take those conundrums facing our clients and us as B2B marketers and play, experiment, and innovate to see if we can craft a solution. Sometimes we get carried away, often we’re down a rabbit hole, and sometimes we accept defeat but more often than not, we come up with a solution. And we do this in Velo Labs, our playground for innovation and where we explore new things that take us forward.
It is more than in-house exploration. We embrace partners and entrepreneurs supporting those with compelling ideas that solve our client’s problems with angel investment, incubation, mentoring, or turning on the full power of a leading B2B agency to support your ambitions.
If you are grappling with a challenge right now or have a proposition, some tech, or a skill that you think will benefit our clients, get in touch with us here. A problem shared and all that.
How can AI help us craft B2B marketing to be proud of?
A cross-agency working party to explore how AI can support us in running the business, building better client relationships, acting as a launch pad for our ideas and creativity. Read more on our AI policy page.

Can augmented reality replace face-to-face demos for industrial marketers?
Interactive demos of industrial manufacturer hardware you can touch and feel through the browser.
No headsets are needed. Just access through a browser or mobile phone. This use of augmented reality means you can explore an object like some hardware or a manufactured item. Complete with dynamic hot spots to call out features, or the ability to transfix it into your location, the technology provides a fun, engaging, and new way to do demonstrations without being in person. A great way to touch and feel. A product, without the product!
To experience the AR concept you need to be on an AR capable device e.g. iOS, Android.
