About us

Targeting Innovation is an employee owned company, founded in 1993 by Scottish Enterprise and four Scottish Universities with the aim of supporting the commercialisation of new technology products and services.

George Boag (CEO of Targeting Innovation Ltd) originally established the organisation to deliver a two year European funded support programme for the Scottish software industry in the early 1990s. This quickly expanded through development of a number of projects, which stimulated the demand for ICT across the wider business community.

Since 1993 we have helped over 10,000 businesses and individuals succeed through innovation.

We are one of the UK's leading innovation and technology consultancies. We have over two decades of experience providing support through projects, programmes and initiatives in Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, England, South Korea and through European Commission Programmes. Our goal is to help organisations accrue value from innovation and digital technology.

We bring together a team of experts, with a variety of specialities, ranging from marketing and digital technology, to Intellectual Property and New Product Development. We additionally have an extensive database of Associates, who are experts in their specialism. This enables us to assemble an expert team that can best meet your organisation's needs and deliver on their goals...

To ensure the effective and efficient delivery of our projects on time and within budget our team is trained in PRINCE2, a process-based method for effective project management, identified as best practice by the UK Government.  We have also been certified with ISO 9001 quality management accreditation since January 2008.  This project management system and review approach ensures that we consistently execute projects that deliver superior value to our customers. 
As an employee owned company, we believe we have engagement from both management and employees in their own development and that of the company. Staff are well motivated to ensure the success of the business. We are registered with the Scottish Government’s Business Pledge, which requires committed companies to have given consideration to various workforce matters including: Pay the Living Wage; not use exploitative zero hours contracts;  pursue International business opportunities; play an active role in the community; commit to prompt payment; workforce engagement / balanced workforce; Innovation Programme.
