Our Products

Our two core products – Discovery and Partner

Discovery

Problem focused, curated insight into how your problem is already being solved in the startup & scaleup ecosystem

Partner

Designed for clients wanting to proceed through to partnerships with the solutions worth working with

Discovering

Our Discovery stage creates a unique way for corporates to understand how their problem is already being solved.

1

There's always more than one way to solve your problem

With our Discovery product we build themes around the different ways the market is solving our client’s unique problem. There are always multiple approaches to the same problem.

2

Knowing who the best solutions are makes for good decisions

Within each theme we find the best solutions, globally – the obvious options and those that might be solving the problem in a way our client had not considered.

Why is this so important?

The market tells us how it is solving your problem. 

Our way of working means we start with the different ways the problem is being solved, including ways our client might not have considered, and move on to who the smartest scaleups are you should talk to…clients can then make a decision based on what is best for their business.
