Our approach

Human and business at its core

The global market is exponentially expanding and becoming highly competitive. Competition is coming from all around the corners: from disruptive startups, to multinational businesses. Nowadays, designing a product is not enough, people don’t want products or services, they want unique experiences that will improve their daily lives.

People are looking for solutions that will make their life a little better. And that is what we do … by capturing customers needs with sincere empathy throughout the journey of product creation, we add value to the world, one product at a time.

STRATEGY

We define innovative strategies* that help companies to achieve sustainable growth.

Collaborating closely with our clients, we help them to establish a strategy with the right plan of actions and to explore new possibilities. This enables our clients to efficiently manage risks and introduce remarquable products on the market that will drive their commercial success.

The goal
is, as progress is made, to define an ideal solution*.

*strategy: a good strategy includes actions to take to overcome a specific challenge.
*ideal solution: a solution with a market, that is technically feasible and economically viable according to the constraints/opportunities and strengths/weaknesses of the company.

DEVELOPMENT

Wearing two hats, design and engineering, we transform your vision into a valuable product. We diminish time to market by addressing any technical constraints early in the design process. Having been co-responsible for more than 10 years for Space Technology Transfer, mandated by the European Space Agency ESA, execution is our motto.

Once a strategy and a plan of actions have been defined, design*/engineering* performance become the key factors for a new product or service. From ideation to design/engineering verification, our job is to engage all stakeholders in a specific design and engineering process to imagine unexplored possibilities and to use our creativity to develop outstanding experiences that will deliver a competitive advantage and maximize return on investment.

*design: to translate real world problems into desirable products that outperform the competition or redraw industry boundaries
*engineering: to address complex assembly; appropriate manufacturing processes; advanced materials selection; thermal, vibration or stress concerns

MANUFACTURING

Design/Engineering without manufacturing considerations is meaningless.

Creating new products is a long game: decisions made at the design stage must take into account the future manufacturing implications*. Failing to account for this can be the deal breaker between your future success or failure.

We identify and engage the most suitable industrial manufacturers for your product amongst our partners and network. Whether your goal is eco-production or competitive production costs, we know the suppliers that will suit your needs. During this critical phase, we co-pilot and verify the production process with the manufacturers to guarantee a successful launch of your product.

*manufacturing implications: if you design the most innovative product ever but fail to considerate manufacturing possibilities, and later realize that your product cannot be manufactured, it is a failure.
