An alliance
is what
we make
of it

We use our established personal network to uncover real innovation opportunities, solve persistent technology problems and to fill “gaps” in your technology roadmap. The technology partner you need exists; they just don’t know you need them until you start a search.

Our services are highly customisable. Therefore to discuss exactly what you are looking for, or to explore if you aren’t yet sure, we would love to talk to you.

Contact Us

Our services can all be deployed at various stages of your innovation journey.
The landscaping services can provide the focus for subsequent scouting activities or be used to provide additional market intelligence once targets have been identified.
All our services are highly customisable to your needs.

Image Landscaping Services

In the world of innovation, our landscaping services play a pivotal role in our clients' strategic toolkit, empowering them to design competitive strategies and effectively manage the ‘fuzzy front-end’ of innovation. They can be focused upon Technology or Market, or a combination of the two.

Image Technology or Partner Scouting

This service is designed to identify and appraise technological solutions (and often associated partners) to address a specific challenge or commercial need. It will empower you to explore uncharted territories and discover cutting-edge solutions that go beyond your current capabilities and networks, providing a competitive edge in overcoming innovation challenges.
