Innovia Technology is a global innovation consultancy specialising in the front end of innovation, working with the best companies in the world to create opportunities for growth. We blend inclusive analysis with real-world commercial expertise. Structured and systematic, we leave no stone unturned in our search for the best solution.
We’re proud of the fact that we’ve helped several of our clients innovate on over 100 different projects. Our clients include Procter & Gamble, Shell, Boeing, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft Heinz and Bayer. We measure our success by the strength of the relationships we build, many spanning decades. 80% of our business is repeat business.
What makes us better? We call it holistic innovation. We combine creativity with structure, drawing on a wide range of capabilities ranging from science and manufacturing to behaviour and design. Our holistic approach enables us to tackle complex challenges efficiently. It ensures that solutions are well rounded, with a scientific basis, a compelling customer proposition, and a solid business case.
Our people combine wide-ranging expertise with a willingness to overturn orthodoxies and a passion for creativity. Above all, they share a commitment to making it happen. We can explore more options and create better answers than would be possible by deploying different specialisms sequentially.
We’re pragmatists, not idealists – we know what works in the real world, and factor in what’s achievable given the knowledge, resources and culture of our client. Working in so many different sectors gives us an incredible breadth of knowledge and insight, and means we can bring a fresh perspective to our clients that opens up new possibilities for innovation.
Our solutions work well and drive growth: they are emotionally compelling and commercially effective. We’re agile and responsive, delivering just what you need to make it happen.
Together, we make it happen.
