Technology Scout

CoreTec has been contracted by a number of large industrial companies to identify developers of technology across Europe that fit with their product development strategies.

Client types: North American, Japanese and UK industrial companies.

We are also occasionally asked by Micro-SMEs to identify small acquisitions/JV partners to enable them to leap-frog an otherwise slow i.e. organic growth strategy.
In respect of the big boys, our challenge is usually to identify, from within Europe, a sub-system developer often in an esoteric technological area – usually with a strong materials science bias.
A good example is our work for a large North American corporate from the consumer electronics industry:

Case Study:

Client: Large International Battery Manufacturer (under NDA)
Requirement:   Source reliable ‘X-type’ fuel cell developer
Task: Identify ‘below the radar’ developers of suitably advanced ‘X-type’ fuel cell systems from within our networks across Europe.
Timetable: 3 months (20 man days)
Outcome: Series of attended introductions to relevant developers.
