Custom Research

From investment landscapes to benchmarking studies, company reports to sectoral studies, CTG’s analysts selectively take on customized research where it builds on our data, knowledge and connectivity to the international innovation ecosystem. Our Custom Research clients include corporate strategy, innovation and venture teams; investors; public sector clients at national and local levels; incubators and accelerators; and nonprofit organizations.


Our advantage comes from our extensive network and experienced analysts who draw on secondary research, leverage our proprietary in-house data via our i3 platform, and – most importantly – reach out to people and talk to them about what is going on at companies and organizations all across the ecosystem.
