Our Story

Our team has been making innovation happen for over 20 years.
We’ve worked with many global enterprises.
We discovered common problems. 
Blocking innovation projects. 
Preventing people from collaborating. 
Wasting resources and frustrating teams. 
We couldn’t find a ready-made solution to the problem. 
So we decided to do it ourselves.
We were inspired by the way a forest works. 
Trees share resources and knowledge for the benefit of all. 
They use a network of underground filaments called hyphae.
Hypha was born from this seed of inspiration. 
With a mission to empower people to build ideas at scale.
Providing real world solutions to real world problems.

Our Values


Kindness is showing compassion to everyone and everything.

Treating others with dignity and respect.

This does not mean agreeing to everything or people pleasing,

Or always being submissive to demands,Or not being firm when needed.

Kindness might sound simple.

That’s because it is.

And we’ve found it makes a huge difference.


Poet John Keats said, “Beauty is truth, truth beauty”

For us, truth is making beautiful things.

Through a simple, honest, straightforward approach,

Hypha empowers the creative process.

As we strive to find ways of working that support everyone,

By creating a space where diversity and variety can be seen clearly

Giving ideas the opportunity to shine.


We’re passionate about sustainable progress.

This means being committed to progress that is considered and measured.

We’re always thinking about ways in which we can support people,

By being better than we were yesterday,

Through intelligent and smart use of innovation, We’re always moving towards a better future and outcome.

We’re never stagnant. We work with challenges. Inspired by our passion for learning and making ideas a reality.

Our Manifesto

Think like a Forest

At Hypha we are inspired by the behaviour of the forest. This living organism breathes life into the diversity of our planet. It evolves and thrives through the power of collaboration and communication.

Everyone in an organisation has a voice and the power to innovate. We celebrate creativity and welcome new ideas as a vital contribution to the health and vitality of a business.

With so many twists and turns along the journey, it can be easy to loose track of valuable insights and data. We’re passionate about map-making. These maps help us locate and access knowledge. They help teams explore, evolve and thrive together.

We are unified by our shared vision and goals but we are all unique. We celebrate and encourage diversity in teams. This diversity inspires new perspectives and drives innovation.

Solutions often come from unexpected sources. When we work together, we can draw upon our shared knowledge in a way that creates opportunities. By breaking the silos we can connect (the dots) with purpose.

Real transformation happens as we adapt and respond to change. We listen and learn from our environment. By ensuring we’re engaged and aligned with the current climate, we speak to the real needs of our clients.

Symbiosis is a powerful force in nature and business. When we embrace cross-disciplinary approaches, different teams and skills can come together to create solutions and solve problems.

Everyone has a unique role to play within the ecosystem of an organisation. We value each individual and their perspective. Through this perspective we have power to create new opportunities for collective growth.

When we optimise our collective intelligence, we can use our learning’s from the past to create a future that works for everyone.
