Which start-ups best fit our requirements for an innovative skincare partner?
Our client wanted to identify start-ups with
microbiome-based skincare products. It was
important to the client to identify innovative
start-ups to support their already significant
knowledge in skincare.
The project story:
We undertook secondary research using several sources to identify
relevant targets including databases for crowdfunding, innovative
SMEs, patents, literature, and university spin-offs.
Interviews were particularly important to identify start-ups which
were not visible through published sources. Prioritised companies
were evaluated through detailed conversations with co-founders
and MDs and were assessed based on several criteria including,
technical competence, innovation pipeline, IP, receptivity to
partnership, and any conflicts of interest.
Results: deliverables and outcomes
We shared with the client the landscape of innovative start-ups and
their technologies in this space and recommended those who best
fit the client’s criteria.
Our consultants, scientists and engineers redefine what’s possible and help R&D groups across the medical, industrial, consumer and food and beverage sectors achieve commercial return from their opportunities.
We have completed over 10,000 projects for start-ups and global market leaders alike, from understanding the market & technology landscape through to developing and delivering complex products.
