Qi3 is a specialist service, providing sales, marketing and business development support to technology companies, enterprises and government since 1999. We focus on the commercial exploitation of Emerging & Enabling Technologies in Space, High Value Manufacturing and allied sectors.
Qi3 helps a wide range of clients, from large corporations to small start-up companies; from Research Councils to Universities; and from European Agencies to individual technology programmes by identifying the commercial value in technologies, whether they are innovative and new or mature, by answering some critical questions, including:
- Who wants to buy the technology / products and why?
- What are the best strategies for commercial exploitation?
- How do you bring new technologies / products to market faster and more effectively?
- How do you substantially increase market share, business models, and sales?
- How do you engage better with the markets and industry?
So whether you want to investigate new markets for a technology or find out how to add value to your organisation’s current marketing competences, Qi3 provides a range of services, tailored to suit your business needs.

Values & Ethos
The name Qi3 is derived from the phrase “quality – insight – integrity – innovation”. Everything we do is underpinned by these values and we are continually aspiring to improve our performance. We are passionate about sales and marketing and we enjoy working with technology and the people who invent it. As many of our long standing clients testify, we like to work within companies, not just as dispassionate consultants or ‘yes men’. As a result you can rely on us to provide balanced, sound, reasoned business analysis without foregoing gut feelings. We implement advice as if we were working within your company, not just acting as external advisors. We like to provide alternative solutions and we are committed to your business’ success, providing tailored services based on each individual company’s needs.
