Ithaka provided me with much needed business consultancy and development expertise. They helped me to formulate and clarify my ideas into a credible business plan and to implement a strategy for developing my business. As a result of Ithaka's input, we are a profitable business that didn't need to raise substantive funding.

CEO of confidential corporate client

Ithaka recently carried out a market survey of antibody humanisation service providers for us. Clearly this is a rapidly developing market and their report on the commercial terms and quality of the service providers in the market allowed us to rapidly contract on market terms. The investment in the consultancy project provided an immediate financial and technical return which is appreciated.
