Uncommon Innovation helped us set the bar higher, focused us on a rapidly growing market, clearly highlighted the importance of “speed to market” and arranged introductory meetings with valuable prospective clients. Uncommon has made a meaningful impact on our future business direction and we hope to continue our relationship in the future.

eThor – Opportunity Development
Uncommon has helped us to achieve several key milestones. They helped to validate the market need for what we wanted to do, define the product feature set, identify our pricing structure, and they helped guide us through the process of finding and engaging the right beta customers. Their work not only advanced my business, but it also directly contributed to helping me identify potential investors and raise capital. Uncommon Innovation helped me take my idea and turn it into a reality. If it wasn’t for Uncommon Innovation, I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today. They are worth every penny!”

dTechs – Commercialization Strategy for New Product
Working with Uncommon Innovation has been a great and rewarding experience for us at dTechs. They have over-delivered on all of the promises made and we have always had a great sense of value for money spent.
It is refreshing to deal with an organization that has such high ethical standards. With the open and honest communications we have received from them it has created an atmosphere for highly effective collaboration.
Uncommon completed some key market research for us that really helped to fine tune our focus and identify our target audience. At the same time it allowed us to stay focused on our core business initiatives of launching and growing our business.
Without the development of this marketing and sales research, I can say with certainty, that we would not have had the fast track success of matching our solutions to our key target clients.

Clynch – Growing Sales
We had initial reservations with working with an outside consultant. Uncommon Innovation demonstrated very quickly they had the capability to understand the specifics of our industry and market and within a few weeks were capable of making valuable recommendations concerning the strategic direction of our technology and products.
Information gathered by Uncommon Innovation allows us to very precisely target our product development, marketing, and sales efforts on a well identified and now better understood market segment.
The primary research carried out has also identified and established relationships with a number of sales prospects that our company will be able to capitalize on immediately.
We’re very happy with the work completed – we couldn’t really have asked for much more.
– Dr. Paul Ferry, Clynch Technologies Inc.
