It's competitive out there

You can't get the better of your competitors and market if you don't know where or who they are.

We use Intelligence to solve your problems

You can’t steal a lead on your competition if you don’t know where or who they are. 


Nor can you meet market needs if you do not know what these are. In our experience, too many companies find it too easy to dismiss competitors as irrelevant. Others do not know their market well enough and are missing out on business.

Many still make decisions without knowing what’s going on and who they are dealing with. It’s a dangerous game to play.

And it’s why our clients have the absolute confidence that we will isolate their problems and then give them the Intelligence and options they need to act decisively — armed with meaningful real-world knowledge.

And we can do the same for you.

1. What’s the problem

Where to begin. Make the most of the excellent Intelligence to create growth, reduce risk and uncertainty. In an ever changing world deciding what to do to solve a problem is surrounded by a fog of misinterpretation, exaggeration, confusion and lies. All very risky when making decisions.

We create a discovery process to meet your specific needs and experience by understanding what problems need to solved and the decisions and subsequent actions you need to take.

Answering the questions you need to ask. Questions usually about competitors, markets, Private Equity investments, acquisitions, litigation, reputation, future strategies, countries, products, people and Life Sciences.

Every business has lots of problems. And yours will be the same. Problems are usually about business development, money, markets, future direction, reputation, branding and people. Octopus has unrivalled experience in finding the answers to all these problems.

2. Intelligence

Answering the questions. We answer questions like, what are your competitors planning to do next? Where can you win more business, or what should your next move be? And how do we minimise risk? Should we invest? Also, what should we do next, which market should we move into, what is going to happen and why are we struggling to compete? And should we employ that person or do business with them?

Protect your interests, seize opportunities and minimise risk. We map out what’s happening, joining the dots, find the patterns and look after your interests. Have the certainty and confidence that when you call in Octopus, we will be watching your back and will get the job done. We let you know what’s really going on with objective and independent Intelligence and Market Research.


The truth can be hard to find. Discreet Independent, timely and reliable diligence. For investigations, litigation, business disputes, investors and competitor wrongdoings. 

Before it is too late, we will help you reveal what you could get yourself into. So you are forewarned, able to take precautions and sort things out should the sticky stuff hit the fan.
