Are you thinking of innovating your company or being part of your regional economic development strategy?

Companies are now working in clusters and are collaborating in innovative ways in order to survive and grow. We explore various innovation strategies and models such as Science Parks and Innovation Precincts to foster organisation clusters. These cluster are supported by government and involve working with local municipalities to transform their regions and grow their economies.

Our approach is as follows:

– We develop an innovation strategy for your company
– Develop a regional innovation strategy for municipality
– Identify regional clusters that are unique for your region
– Develop value chains for each cluster
– Identify various role plays and facilitate dialogues to come to a shared vision.
