Polaris MEP’s role in Growth, Innovation and Technology Acceleration



Are you considering launching a new product or entering a new market?

Are there specific barriers and opportunities – both technical and market – for your products and business?

Do you need insight to make better strategic, development, and investment decisions?


Idea > Design > Manufacturing > Market

Move your bold concept from idea into the hands of your development team and delivered to the right market faster. This requires a new flexible work style and mindset. Polaris guides you there.

Technology Driven Market Intelligence (TDMI)

Technology Driven Market Intelligence (TDMI) will guide you to make better strategic, development, and investment decisions. It identifies the benefits and market impacts related to your company’s technology-based asset (e.g., idea, product, process, or capability) and provides the customized actionable intelligence you need. Unlike traditional market research, TDMI directly considers the technical and market viability of your asset and characterizes the associated opportunities and barriers. Through a structured process of desk research and expert interviews, TDMI can provide the following intelligence:

  • Identify and characterize markets, trends, value chains, competition, and companies of most interest to you
  • Detail your technical performance and user requirements, and assess how well your assets meet those requirements
  • Describe your best options for development, partnering and market entry
  • Fill in key knowledge gaps around regulatory, intellectual property, or competitive issues

Polaris MEP works with RTI International, a leading innovation consultancy, to provide successful new product and market diversification efforts for our clients through the TDMI framework.
