  5. Pace. Get to market fast on a small scale and learn. Build the right approach for consumers and retailers – then expand.

Our Services

Here are some of the services we provide:

Learning Laboratories™

Test and adjust products in a fast, flexible, real-world environment. Learn quickly whether your product has what it takes to sell in store, and get the key elements right (pricing, marketing, message, etc.) to enable a successful expansion.

Brand Optimizer

Revitalize your brand to drive sales. Optimize/Build your product, message and go-to-market plan by better understanding which elements and approaches drive consumer demand — and adjusting your offering appropriately.

Real Time Co-Creation

Build products iteratively with consumers. We enlist “fanatics” in an interactive and evolutionary product and package development process. This results in products with more personality, passion, and ultimately, long-term success.

Retail Connect

Engage proactively with leading retailers. We can help you refine and pre-sell opportunities to leading retailers in a “safe” environment, using our panel of executives from Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, Costco, Super-Valu and others.

Self-Funding Marketing

Build your brand fast without a big investment. We have developed a range of self-funding marketing tools used by successful start-ups to dramatically expand their awareness, trial and loyalty without a meaningful investment.

The Opportunity

We studied major new brand creation ($100+M revenue) by decade across 30 grocery categories. We found that big company innovation is declining and small company opportunities are increasing.

We developed a new model for growth and innovation — based on the most successful start-ups.

If you are a small company, we can help you utilize these best practices.

If you are a big company, we have tools to help you get more entrepreneurial to effectively compete.
