We help you innovate faster for the benefit of us all

Innovation benefits society at a whole, so you deserve a consultancy that shares your foresight and passion for exploring new possibilities.

A new standard

When working for one of the UK’s largest R&D tax relief consultancies we saw first-hand that there were flaws in the industry-standard “year-end” approach to claims. It rewards the “business as usual” activities of larger companies, instead of the brave.

We therefore left to set up a consultancy that would change that. We work with you as you begin new projects, not just after, to maximise what you can claim, innovate faster and create more impact. We don’t stop at tax relief, either, but look at the whole innovation support landscape for you.
