Some Of Our Clients
We work collaboratively with many universities, from joint grant applications, early stage proof of principle work, commercialisation advice, innovation clinics and taking spin-out products to market. We have in-depth experience working with academics, tech transfer offices, commercialising teams, venture capitalists/business angels and institutions such as the NHS to guide early stage innovations through to market leading solutions. Working with universities often requires a unique approach to maximise limited budgets, work with distributed teams, support deliverables for additional funding and work to protect and enhance early stage IP.
Start-ups and SMEs
We understand the critical success factors for start-ups and SMEs who often have only one real shot at making it with a new product. We align our goals with theirs to ensure a true team approach. We focus on early risk reduction, core user and market needs definition, platform design approaches and real innovation to excite the market. We advise on careful research and development spending profiles to ensure, as a team, we target the real value-added activity early in the process to maximise the chances of success. Together with our network of partners for software & electronics, IP & regulatory consultancy, test houses, market assessment and international manufacturers, we offer a turnkey service from idea through to finished product on the market.
We have worked with many of the large international names , providing very fast, out of the box, creative solutions to generate real excitement for new or existing product portfolios. We often provide research services, technology scouting, in-depth usability studies, brainstorming clinics and concept generation as well as complete product development. We are used to working to corporate R&D milestones and stage-gates but also provide a radical, non-corporate style innovation service when paradigms need to be challenged and true step change is required to break thorough to new markets or tackle really tricky problems.
