EMD expands your company's capabilities dramatically ... providing a breadth of know-how and focused dedication typically unavailable even in the largest companies.
Our corporate partners use EMD in several ways to enable their innovative product efforts ... ranging from a corporate "skunk works" partner that mines for opportunities, creates business cases, and navigates the tortuous path through development and commercialization to an "on call" place to go to drive through a difficult phase or side step a stumbling block in your existing innovation efforts.
When it's time to graduate from being merely active in innovation to creating the innovative product and establishing a business, it's time to call on EMD.
Some of the work we do for clients regularly includes the following:
create meaningful product differentiation
make a product work better
make a product work differently (maybe to side step another's patent)
enable a useful new product feature
create and enable unique solutions (to help enter new markets)
investigate new technology - technology scouting and assessment
deploy a non-core technical approach outside of your core competency
R&D "trauma center" to create a quick fix on the fly
method development and technical claim support
meeting tight deadlines - project focus
design refinement for cost or for manufacturing
patent review and Intellectual Property bolstering
project management - innovation management
design and test for certifications (UL, FCC, JPMA, etc)
investigative experimentation - design of experiments

Each project is different and under unique pressures or requirements. EMD, with our diverse skills and deep experience, will design and execute a path to your success.
