About dorris

Who we are

We are an innovation consultancy with offices in Hamburg and Copenhagen. Our mission is to unlock the power of creativity within everyone through co-creation and help build and establish an innovation culture in organizations. 

Innovative teams need to navigate ambiguous, uncertain and often complex information spaces. What is unknown usually far outweighs what is known. To tackle these challenges, we provide our clients with a tried-and-true Framework for exploration, experimentation and the allowance to fail fast - and accelerate learning while saving time and money. This is what we call PLAYFUL INNOVATION.

Strong partners since 2007

Since Chris Weier and Carsten Schütte founded their first company, kontor eins digital, they have launched several successful digital products with their own companies. Since the launch of dorris, the two Founders have developed proven concepts to rapidly improve digital products and services and integrate Marketing and Growth strategies for clients in diverse sectors.

As it is important to us to provide each of our clients with the best outcome and the best team, we collaborate with long-term partners in Germany, Denmark, Sweden and the UK. We put together the most competent team to solve your challenge while everyone of us adds an important expertise to build something more powerful. That’s how we have been able to create unique solutions for more than 13 years now.

Matchmaking: Denmark 🇩🇰 x Germany 🇩🇪

With dorris, we have established an exclusive network of Danish industry leaders and entrepreneurs who help us connect German and Danish businesses. We want to enable our clients to share experiences and expertise with their Danish neighbors, learn from each other and get inspiration to solve their business challenges.

In Copenhagen we are part of BLOXHUB, the biggest Nordic Hub for Sustainable Urbanisation. BLOXHUB offers our clients access to their global and local matchmaking with partners and projects. They help us recruit a multi-disciplinary team from their ecosystem and amongst partners and researchers to address your business challenge. Together we facilitate tailor-made workshop formats to get inspired and create valuable solutions together.
