Innovation should encompass both R&D and Commercialisation!
Am I maximising my return on investment in IP?
How do I get my new innovation to market in the shortest time frame?
How do I achieve a step change in profitable growth?
If you need the answers to any of these questions, then you should talk to us!
In the highly competitive technology sector, developing and implementing an effective IP and commercialisation strategy is a complex, expensive and time-consuming task – the reasons why most companies fail to do it properly.
Instead, companies too often fall into the trap of investing a huge amount of resource into developing a new idea, without considering how this idea might be fast tracked into the market and achieve the returns it merits.
New products or services are simply offered to existing sales & distribution channels to add to their existing portfolio, along with some marketing collateral, in the hope that some attention will be given to them and some incremental sales achieved.
In addition, many companies fail to recognise the benefits of collaborating with partners to provide complementary technical skills and potentially valuable R&D funding support.
Developing a clear, innovative commercialisation strategy that can deliver exponential growth is what separates the leaders from the followers. Using a specialist like MSC R&D can help you achieve this.

MSC R&D can undertake a full Business Growth Strategy Review, identifying potential acquisition candidates that will strengthen our client’s R&D strategy.
MSC R&D will then prepare a detailed Acquisition Prospectus, agree the Acquisition Strategy with our client and implement as necessary.
When a client is seeking to exit from a particular R&D strategy, MSC R&D can also undertake a similar exercise to the acquisition process, with the final part of the process being focussed on Divestment.
