Research services

Thank you for your interest in our research services.

Behind InnovationPulse there are years of academic research experience with leading universities and independent consulting in the fields of technological innovation and corporate strategies.

We offer company & industry due diligence and research services. Our strength is in emerging technologies (e.g. nanotechnology, synthetic biology, foodtech) but we also have experience working on traditional industries (e.g. furniture, metal mechanic).

Our work typically involves researching trends in emerging technologies and investigating the companies that develop them and their strategies. We use multiple data sources, from patent databases to trade journals to the web (it generally is public data but we have good knowledge about data sources and skills for data wrangling, analysis and reporting).

Who is this for?

Consider these use cases, for example:

  • Entrepreneurs and inventors: you are considering a new business idea and need to know more about companies already working on the same technologies and the overall industry trends.
  • Startups: you are in the process of growing your business and need to know what your competitors are working on to figure out your next steps; or maybe you are interested in licensing your technology and need to connect with the right companies (but first you need to know who they are).
  • Established businesses: likely you have similar needs to entrepreneurs and startups, but you would also like to keep an eye on industry trends for a longer term to make sure you, for example, anticipate new entrants and changes that could affect your business.
  • Investors: you need to understand better a company, its technology or its industry.
  • Journalists: you are writing a piece with focus on new technologies and need solid research to back up your story.
  • Other researchers, analysts: this kind of analysis could be helpful in many other situations, for example, to complement or double-check your own research work.

We generally work on an hourly basis but we are also open to fixed-price projects depending on whether the job is a one-off project or a longer term e.g. industry monitoring task.

What do you get?

In addition to a written report with research findings and recommendations, you access world-class training, experience and skills at fair and reasonable rates, confidentiality (willing to sign NDAs), and a final one-on-one discussion of findings to extract as much value as possible for your business.

We are easy to communicate with and have much experience working internationally and with different cultures.
