Working with NovAzure was extremely valuable in helping us refine our business strategy in preparation for an investment round. Their professional, diligent team brought new insights and clarity to our business model through a combination of industry knowledge, experience and market research. It was a rigorous, albeit enjoyable, process that enabled us to make significant progress in a relatively short period of time
CFO, IoT Start-up Start-up
We have worked with NovAzure on various projects over the last 3 years. They helped us for Strategic advisory and fund raising. What we like is the level of detail the NovAzure team go to in order to understand the challenge we are trying to find a solution for. This is incredibly important especially as our industry is moving and adapting so quickly. Novazure really take the time and effort to help develop solutions that match our customers needs and have applied their collective experience to help us to understand how our business can adapt to changes. They helped us plan for the future and all steps towards fund raising, and ultimately helped us to shape the business we have today.

NovAzure has helped out greatly during our initial phase not only with an investment but with providing significant input for us to develop our platform and eventually make our first sale.

Chris and the team from NovAzure have become a trusted advisor to Artelia UK. Through their advisory service they have given us the confidence to reposition our programme team’s business model.
Director, Artelia UK Corporate Client
NovAzure made sure they rapidly understood our complex business, and challenged us to think differently about what we knew. They helped us define the right business models and commercial strategy to maximise value from our IP. We’re very pleased with NovAzure’s excellent work and intend to carry on working with them as long term partners to accelerate our company growth.
CEO, Iceotope Scale-up
NovAzure has been incredibly supportive at a crucial stage of the growth of The Waste Transformers. With deep insight, compassion, humour and incredible expertise, they have helped us navigate through growing pains; co-defined our pricing strategy; and have been essential to the closure of a defining corporate contract. There are consultants and there are partners. Our partnership with Jean Jacques and Philip has delivered above and beyond and I am personally honoured that they have chosen to work with us!
