There is market for your innovation!

We have two types of clients, the ones who love working on the research arena and the ones who really want to take their hi-tech innovations to markets. In best case, both attributes are combined in one single client.

 

Nevertheless, they all need motivation to continue their work. It might be, a) proof and documentation to make the current funding agency content, b) proof of the real business potential, c) proof that potential clients have interest to collaboration, or d) proof that the innovation or product sells in the intended market.

The work content

We’ll carry out traditional market research actions, contact potential collaborators/customers, work on the digital communication to obtain hot leads which we might have had no prior indication, and plan for the best possible future actions.

We will invest our hearts to the work, because we want that your innovation is utilized. And if there is also business potential, we would realize the potential by establishing and operating the business.
