HOW WE’RE DIFFERENT

WHY WE’RE BETTER

Our clients tell us it’s our ability to combine deep technology and market insights while advising on strategy, tactics and execution that makes us not just different, but better.

We build our approach around you

We already know one very important thing about you. We know that, whatever you’re looking to achieve, it will be unique to you. Which is why we weave the different strands of our methodology around your particular requirements, creating the perfect fit.

We go deeper and further to create powerful solutions through:

  • Our unique combination of techno-commercial insights and technology adoption expertise.
  • The deep technology know-how of our in-house, inter-disciplinary vertical domain experts and horizontal technologists across industries. They speak your domain language.
  • Constant conversations with established players, start-ups, technology owners and adopters, academia and experts across industries and value chains globally.
  • Accessing our global network of experts, selecting the relevant specialists and mining their intelligence. In the unlikely event that there’s a knowledge gap in our network, we’ll find the right person for your needs.
  • In-country research on the ground, engaging with industry players across the value chain.
  • Drawing from our vast wealth of actionable insights, analyzing the continually updated information in our TechnologyAdoption and Commercialization Center.
  • Combining all of the above insights with deep analysis of inventions, patents, scientific and market data.

We create customized solutions that fulfil your specific requirements.

Delivering on your requirement determines which of these elements – and the degree of each – that we employ. But what remains constant is what we do with our findings. We take all our learnings, then subject them to rigorous interrogation, cross-referencing and deep analysis to extract the consolidated, value-rich, easily understandable and highly actionable insights and opinions that make a difference.

Our clients find this approach invaluable, and tell us we’re unique in the way we do it. Unanimously cited as one of the reasons they not only like working with us, but continue to work with us repeatedly, our clients consider our unique methodology to be a key differentiator.

Easy to collaborate and work with, we keep you in the know

If it’s to be of any value, an inquiry into the future is, by its very nature, a journey into the unknown. Our clients come to us seeking clarity out of uncertainty. But nobody wants this journey to end in an unwelcome surprise. We keep you in the know and in control through a series of checkpoints. At key stages, we update you on where we’re at, what we’ve found and what the impacts could be for you.
