What can Geminus do for you?
Do you know exactly what Geminus can do for you? We may have found you some funding, increased your R&D tax claim for you, or help you get more from your people. But very few people see our full range of services as an Innovation Agency.
It’s been a long trek, but we’re now getting to a point where we’ve able to deliver everything we want. We’ll be telling you more about these in a series of dedicated blogs over the next few weeks, but for the time being, we hope that you find the following overview interesting.
When you set out to develop a business, you often have an image in mind – but as the old saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Well it’s been just over 3 years since we started Geminus, and the big picture is coming together.
We always had the vision to develop an “Innovation Agency” – a vibrant business which would help amazing people achieve incredible things. But, we had to build the jigsaw one piece at a time.
In 2016, we started with our training services, and developed our ep!c programme. We then developed our R&D Tax Credit Services, including Radar365. Pretty soon we’ll be launching our new programme “Innovator International” which is already presenting some amazing opportunities in it’s pilot phase. So, we’d like to take this chance to tell you a little more about us, and where we’re going.
The Big Picture
The masterplan was always to deliver the following services:
- Ideation: Identifying challenges, creating and selecting solutions
- Development: Developing ideas, plans, business models, propositions and marketplaces
- Commercialisation: Developing supply chains, managing logistics, and scaling the business (including managing export opportunities)
- Funding Innovation: Addressing further financial requirements (including R&D Tax Credits)
- Managing Intellectual Property: Identifying and securing IP, managing your IP portfolio
However, what you do and how you package it are nearly always two separate things. So, we’ve developed the following support services to help you achieve your goals and vision
R&D Tax Credits
We’re going to start with this one as it’s by far our most popular service at the moment. We deliver a simple, swift system to help you maximise your R&D Tax Credit claim. We’ve got a range of offerings from our Fasttrack service for smaller businesses with relatively small claims, through to our highly competitive large company service.
In all cases we offer the chance to estimate your claim before you make any commitment to work with us. The real jewel in the crown is our Radar365 service – this allows us to work with you on a consultative bassi to help you maximise your claim. In most cases we can increase a claim by around 45% with some simple planning. We’ve got some great plans here, but we’ll tell you more about that later!
If you’re wanting to help your people become better engaged, more innovative or improve their productivity, ep!c is for you. ep!c is about improving your Engagement and Productivity through !nnovation and Creativity. We offer a range of affordable events and training options, ranging from corporate pitches and hackathons, through to bespoke training for people, teams and leaders.
The philosophy is simple. Allow people to be creative, and three major things will happen – they will start to enjoy themselves more, they will become better engaged with the business and other colleagues, and they will develop more innovative ideas. When you combine engaged people with innovative ideas, the outcome is simple – improved productivity. Creativity is simply the key.
This autumn we’ll be launching our exciting new Innovator International programme – and it will the the cornerstone of the Innovation Agency. We’re running a pilot at the moment, and the potential is really starting to prove itself. On the programme, we support companies and ideas who meet some specific and strict criteria to achieve their international business goals.
The companies we work with must have an Innovative Idea (product, service or business model) and a low-risk, high-impact business model. They must be able to demonstrate significant growth potential within the UK, export potential, and scalability through growth, franchising or other means. They must also be able to demonstrate that they have access to the majority of the required resources (people, knowledge, finance, etc). More to follow on this one!
Other Support Services
Finally, there are a range of other ad-hoc services we provide on a case by case basis, including providing access to grant funding and developing bespoke training courses – to name a few. If you’ve got any specific requirements, please do ask us – if we can’t, we usually know someone who can!
So that’s our Innovation Agency in a nutshell! We’d love the opportunity to tell you more about anything you’ve seen that interests you. As we mentioned at the start, over the next few weeks we’ll be releasing specific blogs about each of the above mentioned services – but if you can’t wait that long please do give us a call!
