Making open innovation data-driven
and result-oriented!

Have you experienced any of the following issues?

The analysis is so superficial that it is common knowledge in the industry

Insights are not actionable

The output doesn’t cover the answer to questions that you asked

Scouting activity is not leading you to innovative Startups

Analysis is not covering all the information pillars like technology, business, customer, market etc.

Analysis doesn’t translate well to be consumed easily and the storyline is missing

A lot of information has been dumped on you in the name of analysis

There are many false data points and you end up discarding the analysis

Open innovation programs are not yielding desired results

Such issues come up if a consulting firm doesn’t relate well to your objective or they go silent after taking the project i.e. there is no sharing of analyst thoughts, methodology, sample output, interim updates, and no looking beyond superficial information or traditional search strategies to get deep insights.

If you are to take care of all these
then there is no point engaging an external partner?

We understand the gravity of all such concerns and can connect to your thoughts.

Here is what we offer –

Combining the experience and expertise of our research scientists, and AI-powered tools, we don’t think of consulting as an assignment but a challenge. And we love challenges.

Our formula for great analysis and deep insights –

Investigative Search through research scientists + AI powered tools + Grit

Our experienced and well trained research scientists understand the relation between technology, business strategy, customer need and how these blend together in achieving the end result which would be a combination of all fueled by creativity and tenacity to unearth deep insights.
