What clients usually engage your Product Innovation Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Product Innovation talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Product Innovation professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets.

Our Product Innovation consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Product Innovation talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Product Innovation talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Product Innovation consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Product Innovation

Product Innovation is crucial for any company to remain viable in their industry. For many years now, businesses have been trying to figure out ways they can bring forth new products and services that make them stand out from their competitors. Product Innovation is the process of coming up with new ideas to innovate on, or taking an existing product and improving on its quality. Product innovation can be done through different methods, but it is most often done by studying the industry, researching market data, leveraging new technology, and creating prototypes. Many of these steps can be done without involving clients or employees (whom you could typically call “partners” in your business), but you will need input on each step if you want to bring your new product to life.

One of the first things that must be considered before beginning any innovation activity is knowing what to look for in order to find opportunities for product innovation within your industry. While it may sound trivial, knowing what to look for in a new industry is a crucial step in the process of product innovation.

Key factors to consider when looking for opportunities for product innovation

What is the size of your business? The answer to this question will determine how much you can experiment with your business, as you will need to develop a budget. In most cases, it is recommended that you will want to expand your budget based on the revenue of your business per year. For example, if your company earns less than 10M USD/year, then spending anything more than 1 M USD is too risky and should be avoided.

What is the current state of your industry? The answer to this question will give you a better grasp of how difficult it will be for you to innovate in your industry. For example, if the state of your market makes it impossible for you to compete, then it is unlikely that you will be able to innovate in your industry, as doing so could result in drastic losses for your company.

How large are your competitors? How big are they compared to other companies like yours? How large are they compared to other industries? These questions can give you an idea how competitive the current market is, and whether or not its difficult for you to compete with these other companies.

What is the cost of production? If the cost of production is extremely high, then it is likely that higher-quality products will be accepted by consumers. In this situation, there will be a higher chance of your product being accepted by consumers, which can help with sales.

How many competitors are in your industry? How many companies are in the same industry as yours? Questions regarding how many competitors there are in a certain industry can tell you a lot about how competitive this industry is. A large number of competitors suggest that it is a highly competitive environment where innovation is difficult to gain market share. If there are only a few competitors in your industry, then it is likely that you will be able to enter the market as long as your product or service is relevant and of good quality.

When you have answers to these questions, it will be easier for you to think about how exactly you can innovate within your industry. By knowing what to look for and these answers, you can figure out which opportunities are best for your company and will help advance your business in the future. By looking at this information, you should also come up with a plan on how exactly you wish to go about innovating within your industry.

There are many methods for product innovation, but there are few ways that are more effective than others. One of the best ways to innovate in your business is to talk to your customers. Although this may seem like an obvious way to innovate, it is important to remember that not all of your customers will have exactly the same needs as one another. By talking to your customers you can easily figure out what they want from a product or service, and how they want it improved upon. Effective communication with customers will help you identify what areas need improvement within your existing or new products or services. Once you have identified these weak points, it will be much easier for you to make necessary changes and come up with effective solutions to improve upon them. By asking your customers how they would like to see your product improved you will be able to determine what they would be willing to pay for in return.

Another effective method for innovation is to conduct market research. Market research is a term used to describe the process of going out and gathering information on a particular topic, idea, or industry. If you want more information on a particular industry, then there are a number of different ways you can do this. You can send out surveys or questionnaires about a certain product or service that you have been working on, which will help determine how effective it is and whether or not people want to buy it. You can also conduct focus groups, which are small groups of people who you can ask questions about your product or service. These focus groups will help you determine how consumers want to see the product improved, and what they expect it to be like. You can then test out prototypes of different methods that were identified by your customers during earlier phases of the innovation process. By doing this, you will be able to improve on an innovative method for your company’s success based on consumer needs and your research.

Another method for product innovation is to study the industry itself. Studying industries ahead of time is another effective way to ensure that you are innovating in a positive direction for your company. You can do this by identifying current problems within an industry, as well as possible solutions to these problems. By studying the potential of the problem, you are also being able to determine whether or not your company can invest in innovative solutions within that industry.

A final method that is recommended for innovation is to look at how other companies are innovating their products or services. Some companies will copy ideas from other companies before they innovate their own, but there are also many companies who will become more innovative after they have copied successful products of others. You can even look at what types of products succeeded in this industry and noticed which ones were the most successful. In this way, you can determine the particular features that make a product sell better, and if they are relevant to your own company.

No matter what method you ultimately use for innovating within your company’s products or services, it is extremely important that you do not try to implement too much change at once. It can be tempting to try out a large number of different ways to innovate a product or service with the hopes that one of them will become an effective innovation, but these types of changes often fail. Each phase of the innovation process should only contain minor modifications with which you are very familiar. If you get something wrong with one of your innovated methods, it won’t hurt the overall effectiveness of other methods.

Innovating is a difficult process, but it is necessary for any business that wants to succeed in the future. It is important to remember that when you are innovating you must make incremental changes and make sure your changes are relevant and beneficial for the customers who will buy your product or service. By studying what customers want from your product, you can figure out exactly how to innovate in a positive direction which will ultimately help high quality products become more successful in the future. Firms can choose to set up an R&D and Product development department to handle of these or simply push the responsibility to professionals by outsourcing that aspect of their operation.
