Bionic is an army of entrepreneurs who have built and scaled companies. We know that large enterprises can grow like scaled startups when they leverage the methods and tools of lean entrepreneurship and the portfolio-mindset of venture capitalists. We install a new way of working called the Growth OS that shifts enterprises from operator-mode to creator-mode and enables our partners to discover and build the future.
