The centre of gravity has shifted. Really clever business solutions are now being
delivered by nimble, niche firms. These agile game-changers are the artists in
innovation. The snag is, they’re often invisible… too small and specialised to
blip the radar of global companies. So we have made it our business to search out
the most inspiring firms and introduce them to innovation-hungry senior executives.
We are Clustre – the innovation brokers.
We are passionate champions of innovation.
We connect major companies to really inspired innovators.
And we never charge for this introduction service.
We search for niche innovation firms with
an impeccable record of delivery.
We then open doors at senior levels in major
companies. We are paid largely on results.
When you win; we win.
“We’ve been struck by the care taken to understand what we do and how we work – this team not only ‘hits-the-mark’ quickly but it is also proactive in making recommendations in related areas that we’ve very much valued.”
“Clustre introduced us to a small group of specialist companies that are pushing the boundaries of innovation. The resulting conversations challenged our own thinking and greatly assisted us in developing our business change and transformation agenda with some of our key clients.”
“Lebara needed specialists with the pragmatism and experience to define our roadmap and help us along the journey. Clustre consistently found the right individuals, reducing our search time and removing the overheads of big brand consultancies.”
“My brief to Clustre was challenging… find me developers who are open-minded, very tech-savvy and instinctively consumer-centric. The Clustre team grasped these complexities and delivered on every demand.”
“This team brought a totally new perspective – a fresh and very different approach to understanding our needs. These insights are certainly having a profound and very measurable impact on our business”.
Running a niche innovation firm can be a very lonely business. That is why Clustre
not only opens doors that are closed to most small companies, it also provides
the mutual support of a ready-made, like-minded community.
Clustre has already hosted a ‘speed-dating’ event that brought together all of
these innovation firms. With just a few minutes for each niche company to describe
its individual services, this ‘show and tell’ certainly focused minds. But it also
concentrated attention on the possibility for exciting collaborations and working
partnerships. As a result, a number of very valuable client introductions have
now been made and many profitable partnerships have been fostered.
With regular newsletters and other networking events in the pipeline, Clustre is
a vibrant and mutually supportive community. Evidence, if ever you needed it,
that running a niche innovation firm doesn’t have to be a lonely business.
