We are industry veterans with many successes (and some failures) behind us. We have advised on over $500m of invested capital, $1bn of licensing revenues and hundreds of transactions. Our footprint is as large as it needs to be, with access to a worldwide network of expert associates.
We work with companies and investors on projects that typically have urgency and material impact. This has included business and competitive strategy, IP strategy, financing, mergers and acquisitions, management buy outs, and asset monetisation and sale. Often with smaller companies we provide the "last mile" between strategy and the PE/VC community.
Our clients typically hire us for challenging projects where a square peg won't do. In these mandates we bring to bear our interdisciplinary skill set, creativity and the hands-on engagement of our Founders to make things happen. Our deep understanding of intangible assets allows us to analyse and reframe business problems in non-intuitive ways and in doing so generate creative and effective outcomes for our clients.
We help our clients generate operational leverage from intangible assets to drive enterprise value.
We develop and implement strategies to drive revenue from intangible assets.
We clarify the contextual value of intangible assets and where necessary recover it.
With backgrounds in investment banking, strategy consulting, law and scientific research our team brings a lot to the table. Our back up includes hundreds of technical experts and one of the most experienced outsource partners in India.
Deep Learning tools that cut the cost of effective due diligence and filter out the noise. Human experience built over hundreds of projects in multiple industries and geographies.
Science projects are not our business. Generating real monetary value from our engagements is. We think like business people and investors. Our work product and outcomes reflects this.
