Minerva specialises in gathering and analysing intelligence that enables our clients to better understand their business environment, enhance their ability to identify business risks and opportunities and leverage their competitive edge. Our competitive intelligence service is based on a cutting-edge methodology that includes high-end information gathering and research capabilities, bolstered by solid technical and legal acuity.

Competitive intelligence is delivered in the form of a graphic plot of the key players in the target market, accompanied by detailed information on each competitor’s procedures, practices, R&D plans, products and services, and unrevealed usable leverage points of conflicts, corruption, fraud or bribery.

Generating Business Opportunities

Any business that wishes to develop and grow requires a steady stream of information on potential markets and opportunities. Minerva offers thorough and comprehensive market research and analysis services that offer insights to companies looking to expand and grow. At Minerva, we are uniquely capable of operating in any language and culture, in our home markets and specifically in Europe, the Middle-East, Former Soviet Union, and Latin American markets. Additionally, we are able to provide in-depth information and analysis regardless of geographic boundaries.

Minerva identifies potential unique business opportunities, locates key players and centers of excellence, and creates detailed target profiles that assist our clients in executing well-informed business moves.

Deep Level Due Diligence

Decisions involving significant business moves, large-scale acquisitions, new partnerships, and expanding operations into new, and foreign, countries inevitably involve trade-offs between risks and benefits. Minerva’s Deep-Level Due Diligence service supports clients’ risk management and helps minimise such business risks by providing comprehensive assessments of business targets. A distinct tool to financial and legal due diligence, Minerva’s Deep-Level Due Diligence delves into the people behind the target company; their motives and interests, past behavior in other roles, and any other information that could reveal behaviour contrary to the strategy of Minerva’s clients.

Our unique Deep-Level Due Diligence methodology produces a broad and detailed overview of the designated target, taking into account a multitude of financial, marketing, legal, and technical aspects.
