IDEASCANNER is a must have in consulting for startups – in all phases from idea to growth. I am thrilled with the way the tool is easy to use, but deeply maps the many different aspects of a company’s development, stimulates discussion and even encourages team building. It’s a lot of fun to think outside the box and, most importantly, it encourages you to identify innovations.

robust, very fast to results and yet profound, helps massively, makes ideas comparable, creates a standard
The questions that are asked by IDEASCANNER bring more to think about for both someone starting a business and for someone already running the business on how to scan, score and scale.
