Were any relationships rewarding?

Nanotech has struck a particularly rewarding relationship with an interactive agency while working on its web-site, on-line shop and trying to boost its on-line presence as far as Google positioning was concerned. The project allowed the company to make a mark on-line and consequently to extend its offer to new market segments and reach for new clients. The contractor in question – interactive agency – proved to be reliable and satisfied Nanotech’s needs to the full extent. Since then both parties continue their cooperation as partners, rather than based on simple customer-contractor approach. Right now the creative agency works on a number of very different tasks, including direct contact with Nanotech’s clients.

How does the SME think it could benefit from other sectors' input?

Nanotech plans to take another strategic step towards development and create its own brand. The cross-sector cooperation could not only help in creating one but also in promoting it. Thanks to the commitment of the creative industries in the preliminary stages, innovation can cover not only the product, but also processes of thinking about the market. There is a huge potential for the internationalization of Nanotech as the company’s product doesn’t know national borders. As the company sees it, the cooperation could also result in promoting the very idea of using products of nanotechnology in every-day-life. There is a huge space for PR agencies for raising the consumer awareness. Nanotech is also looking forward to sharing common experiences between enterprises from different markets and sectors.

innovative products.
