Innovation by design is in our DNA

CESAR was born in 1996 to address the “brain drain” from the region. Later on, these same people would help to create one of the main innovation centers of Brazil. The initiative currently impacts many other ecosystems and fosters a strong, open-innovation network.

True innovation starts with talented people who create new approaches and businesses that change other people’s lives.

Innovation Methodology

Design is in our DNA. We see its strategic value and transformative potential. Our way of innovating is inspired by the Double Diamond process, a classic approach to design. With more than two decades of experience in solving complex problems, we have developed a practical approach that gives rise to a third diamond, completing our unique methodology.


Study, observe, and understand the context to identify a set of opportunities, pain points, and motivations.


Through idea generation, selection, prototyping, and validation techniques, the identified opportunities are leveraged to solve problems and optimize benefits.


The leveraged ideas are materialized into “artifacts” that can become new products, services, processes, or businesses for our clients and partners.
