A versatile and trusted partner we are proud to work with many of the biggest names in the industry identifying creative strategies for sustainable growth – from digitalisation to agile working, innovation to ecosystem building and the increasingly critical role of mindset and culture.

The combination of deep domain knowledge, relationships and the expertise we’ve gained working alongside those leading, financing and transforming their organisations means we have an intimate understanding of the immediate, urgent challenges facing shipping and maritime, but also a comprehensive view of where and how to invest in its future.

We engage with people in a wide variety of ways, focussing on several key areas: research, intelligence and foresight; transformation, digitalisation and growth; leadership, innovation and agility; and, ecosystem-building, Blue Economy investment and opportunity.

From classic consulting to high-impact workshops, leading-edge research and unparalleled foresight strategy to assisting with M&A we occupy a unique position with companies operating in the shipping & maritime sector and those seeking to enter it.

As part of the EU BlueInvest platform paving the way into the blue economy we support investment readiness and access to finance for early-stage businesses, SMEs and scale-ups in the Blue Economy.
