We have assembled a team of research-driven professionals with unique intellectual property and innovation insight and expertise. The team members use proprietary algorithms embedded in a latent semantic analysis engine as well as Boolean and traditional research tools applied across a wide range of databases. The results from our research process provide a competitive advantage when assessing opportunities and advising portfolio companies on product development, M&A and strategic planning.
Our research team has:
- Nearly a decade of experience providing commercial context to rapidly evolving markets driven by innovation.
- Identified and tracked hundreds of innovation spaces and over 10,000 businesses competing within these defined spaces.
- Reviewed and evaluated hundreds of companies each year in support of client M&A activities, product development, and strategic planning.
NextSteps Capital uses these tools and knowledge to streamline the identification and ranking of emerging companies and technologies that are well-positioned to compete and succeed within important innovation spaces in the U.S. and global economies.
