  • Novable seemed like the best option in terms of user experience, price, and results. Having those lists of companies presented to you every couple of days cuts down on so much time and it’s a much easier workflow for me.

  • We had a very specific customer request for a practically non-existing technology in eCommerce. In just 2 iterations (2 hours of workload for us), Novable managed to find 3 times the amount of companies we had after multiple weeks of research. The quality of the startups was top-notch (over 66% match rate). Some relevant companies were completely under the radar, meaning we were the first ones to reach out to them. This is great news for any CVC initiative and innovation consultants: Novable can deliver a blue ocean that no other solution could find.

  • We were conducting market research around MedTech companies in several domains. Thanks to regular touch points and iterative precision, Novable delivered many new and unknown companies (82), which further increased the value for our customer. The best part is that it only took me a couple of hours to get there.

  • After benchmarking 11 solutions and testing two of them, we’re delighted to see that Novable’s promises exceeded our expectations, both in terms of the platform and the team behind it. The quality of the sourcing and the deadlines, even during peak periods, are always on target. Since then, other departments (like M&A) have wanted to use it too!

  • Novable was quite impressive on its way to collect specific companies, specialised in NFTs, which was in scope with my search criteria and did this very rapidly.

  • The results provided by the platform are efficient and relevant. Additionally, the startup scouting tool has well-designed ergonomics and features. A big part of our great relationship has to do with the very good support of the team, too.

  • To stay in the state-of-the-art you need to know what is happening outside of the bubble. Using Novable to benchmark the potential companies you could be interested in is extremely useful.
