LumOptica | Milner Strategic Marketing


Client Feedback

“After winning an Innovate UK Proof of Market grant, we needed an expert consultancy to carry out the market sizing part of the project. We selected Milner Strategic Marketing to undertake this work because of its independence, market forecasting experience and collaborative approach. 

We were really impressed with the work Milner did for us – a very comprehensive market model that forecast the changing dynamics in the market.  We were particularly interested to find out the quantified value of the sectors for our invention, which will help us plan which sectors to target in the future and tailor the product to meet their needs.

This project was very useful to us and Milner’s work will help us now in moving forward – we can use it to develop our strategy and write follow-on proposals for further funding.”
