Don’t just take our word for it. Our clients range from Blue Chip, to Universities, to tiny tech start ups, whatever the size, private or public sector, we love working with them. Here is what some of them have to say.

ThinkInnovate has been a real asset within our project, and were one of the main drivers behind our team winning a substantial government grant. Their knowledge into the inner working of government funding opportunities was extensive, and they led us well through the successful process. ThinkInnovate’s drive, management skills and business acumen were great contributors to the process as a whole, and I would whole heartedly recommend them in the future.

- Ran Merkasy, Senior Product Innovation Manager - Samsung

ThinkInnovate have proven themselves invaluable to us, complementing our in-house resources with project management and strategic consultancy. Their team have a broad technical base and were effortlessly able to help us on several projects covering a very diverse set of technologies, with very precise and insightful advice. They have an excellent understanding of the nuances of the fund raising process; where we had tried and previously failed, they helped us restructure and reposition our project unlocking rich streams of funding that would have been otherwise unavailable to us.

- Nick Allott, Director - UbiApps

Having the expertise of a top academic computer scientist as part of Think Innovate’s contribution to our technical team really made a difference to how far we were able to go with all three of our funded projects. Each of the projects were very different, but the additional expertise gave us the ability to solve complex hardware and middleware issues, prepare complex technical reports and proved invaluable.

- Grant Mahoney, Managing Director - Keyboard Group

ThinkInnovate held a terrific workshop session with us, reviewing a draft grant application we were preparing for a big R&D project. Jo offered us constructive, insightful and expert feedback based on her wealth of experience of what goes into a successful project, and also of what grant application judges are looking for. We incorporated the feedback into our final application, and I’m very pleased to say that our application was successful. Thank you, Jo!

I have worked with Think Innovate director Jo Eckersley on a number of key programmes of work over the past 6 years and she is exceptionally professional in how she approaches key themes of work. Excellent at networking and building effective relationships, Think Innovate are able to think outside the box and join the dots to take into consideration the wider strategic picture.

- Jamie Petrie, whilst Programme Manager - Creative Skillset

I have always been completely satisfied especially with the extensive 12 months work on the European funded Equal project ‘Cutting IT’ where Jo was responsible for the market and dissemination activity and was also the internal evaluator of the project partnership. The sector focus of this project was fashion and textiles. Jo undertook extensive research with the Business Support Organisation’s (BSO) for the sector mentoring pilot, evaluation of the individual pilots run through out the project, and subsequent work to build the BSO forum. Jo worked extremely productively with the project team as well as with the wider network of partners and had the skills to generate productive working groups and networks. Jo established an in depth knowledge of the sector and made extensive
robust contacts in the Industry.
