Creativity is the heart of every successful company.

It involves connecting things or ideas that previously had no link between them.

The creating process always comes from the same principle: « let one’s imagination free, then lead it through a concrete way »

In order to define successful products and services, we recommend carrying out marketing surveys throughout the innovation process.

We divide the process into 4 main phases:

These ideas are linked either to use or to technologies.
To identify them, we use the following tools:

  1. prospective studies
  2. opportunity studies
  3. marketing intelligence
  4. creative studies

This phase filters ideas to keep only those with high potential and turn them into a mature product concept in line with the needs and expectations of the market.

Several investigations are necessary to achieve this:

  3. benchmark
