Our Approach

Our Story


Robert Eckard, PhD founded an independent, boutique consultancy in 2005. Since that time, he has provided science-based analytics and cross-cutting strategic directives to Fortune 500 and Global 1000 corporations, the US and state governments, industry organizations, mid-sized corporations looking for new markets and technologies, and promising startups.

"My work combines business and science/analytics to tackle big problems like climate change, sustainability, and water quality. I focus on getting technologies to market and accelerating them once they are commercialized. I help through several channels: technology evaluation and selection, strategic positioning, fund development, grant writing, and market research. My specialty is transforming data, industry expertise, and scientific rigor into concrete, actionable outcomes. So far I have helped companies acquire over $200M in funding, and commercialized/expanded dozens of products and technologies for startups, mid-sized corporations, and major divisions of F500s." -- Robert Eckard, PhD
