Start-ups are agile but don’t yet have the experience of large international groups. How do you set up a framework for your business model, allowing you to design profitable products?

DIRECTION INNOVATION

Innovation

SELECTING THE MOST PROMISING PROJECTS

Your mission is to design the innovative solutions that will secure your competitive advantage tomorrow.

To do that, sometimes with no available baselines, you aim to identify the economical soundness of an innovative solution and compare that to its value and the cost of innovation. To do that, you need to be able to see things from an economical perspective. Is this solution economically viable?

What we offer, either in the form of consulting-support or access to our tools and methods, is the rapid design and modeling of project / product scenarios that don’t yet exist, taking into account a broad range of technical-economical hypotheses, which are either dynamic or only slightly invariable, and so very early on, upstream from the project. This will allow you to better understand and select the most promising projects.
