About

We are passionate about our entrepreneurs and businesses that are developing products and solutions that impact the world around us – what we do, how we do it, and how we live – whether it be industrial products, manufacturing, agriculture, medical devices or mining to name just a few.

We are in the relationship business so we invest in you to understand you and your business and how we can add value.  We price our services in the same way with integrity and transparency.

Whether you are a start-up or an established business, we partner with you, our client innovators, to focus on what really matters – taking your product to market, growing your cash flows and the value of your business.

  • Our clients plan to fund and sustain business models that work for them and their customers.
  • Our clients upscale their investment in R&D using external funding and expertise to compete effectively on a bigger stage
  • Our clients manage their R&D and IP purposefully, to link R&D investments to specific market driven opportunities.

We succeed when we combine your ideas with our expertise to add value and distinction to you and your business.

Sean Harris

Innovation Manager

Having a structured approach to how you formulate and execute your R&D strategy is critical to driving growth and investment in a business.

Sean has over 9 years of experience in research consulting (both at Ernst and Young and Griffith Hack), university technology transfer and patent examination. This has equipped him with significant insight on both the commercial and academic sides of the research process. With a background in biotechnology, intellectual property and business, he has a demonstrated ability to digest large amounts of complex legal and technical information in order to service the commercial goals of clients. Sean has been working with an ever increasing range of technologies from engineering to biotechnology, manufacturing, waste recovery, ICT and even cryptocurrency.

The value that Sean brings to clients relate to understanding how they can best align their research activities with their commercial strategy in the development of valuable IP assets. The Federal and State government funding landscape is constantly shifting and in most cases shrinking. Sean is equipped with the skill set to help clients navigate this to maximise the amount of funding they can receive by strategically identifying and pursing unique combinations of funding sources that can drive research, growth and investment in their business.

Sean holds a Bachelor of Biotechnology Innovation (with Honours) from Queensland University of Technology and a Masters of Business Administration from University of Technology, Sydney.
