Advising

  • Expands your understanding of the working mechanism of your product.

  • Spares with you for screening for best features of your product.

  • Helps you develop and benchmark your prototype.

  • Challenges you to stronger positioning of your product's unique customer value.

  • Guides you towards higher win-win in collaborations and strategic partnerships.

Advising startups, established companies and organizations to realize the potential of their business ideas

I want to help you understand the mechanisms of how the technologies behind your product work. It is important for you to successfully transform your business idea into innovation. Both for your success in screening or searching for best customer-relevant solutions, as well as for your success in demonstrating the particular benefits of your solution on your customers' terms.

 

I will give you deeper insight and more perspectives on your and your competitors' products. An understanding that will become a focal point for your communication and your ability to protect and further develop the unique value of your particular solution.

 

I will strengthen your strategic work and help securing win-win in your collaborations. This mindset is crucial, e.g. for developing your product, for how to do business-to-business (B2B), and for how well you succeed in uncovering blind areas in your knowledge through public-private-partnering (PPP).

Inspiration

I get inspired to think more visionary by the way Frank Gehry challenges what's possible in architecture. See how he works to add the experience of bodily movement to the character of a building.

“…Thomas has a wonderful drive and passion for driving innovation – in my cases within textile and fabric care. Thomas is very creative in uncovering and guiding research work to find breakthrough solutions. As a technical project leader, he motivates the team and ensures business needs are well understood in close collaboration with commercial colleagues like me – be that via consumer engagement or other market input…”
Christian Wieth, Global B2B Marketing
”Thomas provided sharp, testable and valuable input for our first scientific experiments that would later help fuel the take-off of our company Henlez”
Jeppe Mouritsen, Henlez Founder & CEO
"As a conversation about wood-moisture sensors became a learning about the tree's enzymes and from there actually became useful inspiration for a future solution, I could see how valuable Thomas' sparring is. He is both able to really listen so he quickly gets the right understanding, and then using his nano-tech insight to launch brand new trajectories of thoughts.”
Jeppe Rasmussen, Founder, BeResourceful
“I've always enjoyed working with Thomas. He opens your eyes to possibilities you didn't know existed. He is an inspiring, boundary-spanning collaborator and scientific leader who enjoys solving challenging problems by getting to the root of the issue. He knows a vast amount about protein interactions at interfaces and how to influence these to do useful things. Plus, he has a knack of sharing his deep technical knowledge in ways that make you feel empowered.”
Sonja Salmon, Ass. Professor, Textile Eng., Chem. and Sci., North Carolina State University
”I'm always impressed with Thomas’ unique combination of deep scientific insight and sense for opportunities for sustainable applications. In European collaborations Thomas has shown his great ability not only for strategic thinking, but also for translating his ideas into viable goals.”

”I know Thomas as an outstanding entrepreneur and leader. I witnessed Thomas transforming a clever scientific idea for enzyme-triggered release into an innovative and viable customer solution.”
Lars Dalgaard Andersen, Managing Director, Meritech
”As former CEO for Institute for Surface Chemistry (YKI), I found Thomas a skillful scientist and a great partner in public-private research collaborations. Thomas ability of strategic positioning was a valuable asset to YKI during a transformative time of Swedish research institutes.”
Martin Malmsten, Professor and Director, Copenhagen University
“Thomas inspires confidence with his ability to reduce complex subjects to their fundamentals. With his grasp of language and communication, Thomas is a strong asset in customer dialogues."
Lars Kiemer, Director at Novozymes
”As the leader of a company that delivers B2B communications for technically advanced companies, it is crucial to have qualified counterparts and participation in the process. In our collaboration with Thomas, we had a highly qualified dialogue throughout the process that allowed us to strike precisely in our communication with customers.”
