Things become much clearer when you collaborate and some of the most successful projects rely on and benefit from "collaboration".

Bridging the Gap

Bringing the right partners together to deliver mutually beneficial success and recognition is a geat way of levergaing expert resources, minimising development time, accessing finance and mitigating risk.


Mainstream business support services do not maximise the opportunities available to businesses and society with a tendancy to be focused within one geographic area.


Here at IPG we are different and we recognise that businesses are not and should not be constrained by geography and bridging the gap between opportunity and aspiration is key to the work of IPG.


If the expert support that you need is in another region or even another country, then that is where we will research, validate and engage the expert.


At IPG we bridge the fundamental, but immensley valuable gaps between:- 


  • Mainstream Business Support and business opportunities.
  • Business and International Collaboration
  • UK and non-UK Commercial Opportunities


Knowing the right people and having access to various networks ensures that IPG can identify and engage with hundreds of opportunities.


Through our networks we have access to endles research, innovation, commercial and tech-based opportunities and will work tirelessly to ensure that our clients achieve the maximum benefit from working with IPG.
