Accelerating The Pace Of Innovation Through Partnering.


Change is inevitable

Should You Buy, Build or Collaborate?

More than ever businesses feel the need to innovate to remain relevant, quickly realising that they do not have all the skills and expertise needed to build this change. Partnering is often the best way to address the situation. Until recently the list of possible partners was short and well-defined; today businesses face many more choices than ever before.

Pacemakers was created to professionalise the way businesses identify and engage with the best firms on the planet to acquire, collaborate or partner with.

We provide our clients with the confidence of knowing that their decisions are well-informed, based on high quality ad-hoc research and supported by the experience of real change practitioners. Our approach delivers results.
