Local Heroes platform, supported by White Space work

We helped Centrica launch and grow their new digital platform business, Local Heroes

To support the growth and launch of Local Heroes, the following questions were answered:

  • How can we compete with the growing on-demand services market?
  • What are the key trends in the on-demand market?
  • Should we launch a new proposition?
  • If so, what should the online proposition look like?



  • Local Heroes platform business launched in the UK
  • Strong growth has led to expansion into Ireland
  • Service: Market Strategy, Growth Acceleration & Upscaling
  • Sector: Utilities
“Their analysis was well grounded in theory, but at the same time brutally practical. Their work was really insightful and supported implementable recommendations”
MD, Local Heroes
“I love the concept of the corporate spin-out, and have really enjoyed helping Centrica and the Local Heroes team directly with this venture. It has a huge amount of potential, delivered by a really talented team. I wish them all the best, and am looking forward to keeping up our supporting role wherever the journey takes you”
John Bee, MD, White Space Strategy
