About the company
Creax is a recognized expert in technological innovation.
Through research, we advise companies and businesses to help them prepare for the future in a world that is evolving at an ever increasing pace. There is no such thing as a crystal ball. Society affects companies from many angles. (End) consumers are setting new standards, and the playing fields of different industries are becoming very dispersed and therefore difficult to interpret.
Don't be mistaken. Creax is not just another trend analysis company. We differentiate by revealing the concrete impacts of societal and cross-industry technological trends on the company's business, and most important we define the answers to bring. In other words, we :
Identify business opportunities, and fund them with solid arguments and reasons to believe.
Conceptualize new value propositions and differentiation strategies
We define new innovation scenarios and R&D strategies for the short-, mid- and long-term.
We act at the forefront of innovation, but bring confidence in the choices companies make. We dare to say it, because:

We aspire through our cross-industry research approach to bring existing solutions to your problem
Our unparalleled data-driven approach ensures accurate insights about technology opportunities and market perspectives.
