Taking care of you from start to finish & beyond
In an world where innovation can be an opportunity and a threat, companies have to plan for the long-term and be ready to change. But how? Whether you lead a software, hardware, semiconductor, services, storage, components or peripherals business, our cross-sector expertise and global insights can help you plan for—and sustain—success through disruption & innovation.
Capti works with leading technology & manufacturing companies to build strategic plans that address industry challenges, such as how technical and business model innovations shape the growth of a company’s core business; the ways in which disruption will impact the business & industries; and whether a company should consider entry into the services profit pools of the industry—and if so, how.
Companies face daunting and sometimes contradictory challenges. On one hand, new markets and competitors continue to emerge, driven by innovation around seven general themes. On the other hand, while change is constant, the themes in business are perennial. In general, the new supplements rather than supplants the old, resulting in an increasingly complex landscape.
In parallel to this continued innovation, many “older” swaths of the high-tech industry are maturing, following the same classic patterns seen over time.
Capti has experience covering Framework Programmes 5, 6, 7, and Horizon 2020, as well a range of Innovate UK, Erasmus and European Structural & Investment Fund (ESIF) projects. We have considerable experience of the innovation eco-system and recognise the importance of innovation management at regional, national, and international levels.
This is demonstrated through our work to support research and innovation projects, as well as commercialisation through spin-out and high-growth companies. The Capti team will work closely with your organisation to ensure that you meet all milestones and objectives. We can also add value to your innovation by connecting you with our wide network of private investors, providing opportunities to leverage further finance required to continue your development post project.
Project Evaluation & Review
The Capti team are proudly unique in that we have in-house expert reviewers and evaluators. Their hands on industry experience was gained within the very funding organisations to which we now support! Thus, when it comes to writing your project, you can be confident that our team will give it the utmost care and attention; providing that extra detail you need to succeed. Having an expert reviewer at your side can make all the difference, even if you already have written your proposal. Proofreading is not just the “final touch” that gets rid of typos and misspelling; it is a core part of the bid writing process and can make the difference between rejection and approval.
Many funding programmes require collaboration between a (specific) number of organisations across UK and/or Europe, and sometimes beyond (e.g. Eureka-Eurostars or Associated Countries). In the research and innovation funding ecosystem, any company, research organisation or non-governmental organisation can be a partner if they prove themselves financially viable and qualified to perform the tasks specified in the project proposal.
Capti’s extensive experience and track-record in international collaboration means we have built solid relationships in both business and academia and facilitated transnational business-business and business-academia innovation partnerships, supporting the creation of numerous project consortium.
Capti can help you in the search for a suitable business/project partner who meets the legal criteria required and has specific expertise and/or resources to complement your own. With this aim, RedKnight will provide you access to our network of contacts extending to different sectors of activity alongside the guidance in building strong consortiums and fruitful business partnerships.
