Examples of recent consultancy work
  • Leading a project for a sensor manufacturer who wanted to find potential acquisition targets to expand their product portfolio. Guillaume worked closely with this client to understand their criteria and identified the potential companies matching the requirements.
  • Helping an East-Asian component supplier understand the opportunities in emerging flexible applications. This involved gathering information across the whole value chain, identifying the areas where the current technology was lacking and analysing the growth potential in the short term.
  • Helping a client learn lessons from the past and understand the challenges in printed electronics.
  • Providing a detailed analysis of the opportunities for material supply in several sensor types.
