Our cluster development process

Identifying and Analysing

We begin identifying the cluster by consulting with local catalysts and stakeholders. We extensively engage community members in consultation and get a grip on local dynamics, ecosystems, and logistics. Then we execute the need-gap and project viability analysis. This enables us to establish project fundamentals for the next stage.

Preparing Integrated Solution

We engage with subject matter experts and get the project framework and blueprint designed. In consultation with financial analysts, cost accountants, engineers and suppliers, we prepare a detailed project report and help getting all clearances are in place. Then we ensure the required financing gets in place through the assigned mechanism.

Supervising and Troubleshooting

We help the cluster with resource planning and implementation. Through the entire execution, we hand-hold them and ensure their market integration and logistics are in place. We train them for all deployed processes, marketing, and sales. After production starts, we continue supervising and troubleshooting issues when needed.
