Validated, impartial insights
Launched under the initiative of Xavier Levesy and Louis Veyret, both experts in providing innovation advice for over 15 years, the UMI project is the result of a long, careful study of the market and its needs.
UMI was born at Dynergie, an innovation consultancy company, and has continued to develop there for over four years as it invents the market research of the future.
« In 2013, we asked ourselves how the digital revolution would transform our work in innovation consultancy. We came up with the idea of replacing the prospective market research part of the job, which is very time-consuming, with an online tool. »
A young offshoot of Dynergie, UMI features a dynamic combining multiple fields of innovation expertise: engineering, financing support, industrial property. Situating itself at the crossroads of these three fields of activity is what gives UMI its added value.
Our teams have worked for over two years to develop a tool to determine the potential of an innovation on a global scale. Using advanced semantic technologies and powerful proprietary algorithms, the UMI solution draws its strength from automation to offer a service with costs and timeframes that are incomparably lower than traditional methods.
Today, UMI has proven its worth with large companies, organizations promoting innovation, SMEs and startups. But that’s not all. In 2017, we were honored to receive the Tech Connect award in Washington and to be selected by Génération French Tech as one of the 1000 startups building the future of tomorrow.
« We want to be the junction between the two worlds and facilitate relationships, making innovation the heart of the economic growth of companies where they can bear fruit and bring results. »
