Our Purpose

We are proud to be part of an industry that is pushing the boundaries of science and technology to improve people’s lives. Our role is to help our clients identify unique insights, generate new ideas and drive meaningful results to get the most out of their products, portfolios and teams.

We began our careers in established consulting firms where we developed valuable experience and industry knowledge. During this time, we came to see that rigid processes often interfered with original thinking and led to bloated deliverables packed with mediocre answers.

A group of us like-minded, passionate consultants believed there was a better approach and founded Blue Matter to provide a platform to foster innovation and creativity in consulting.

Our Difference

Industry and scientific knowledge, analysis and insights. Left brain thinking. This is the foundation of our discipline. Creativity and imagination. Constantly challenging conventional thinking and seeking fresh ideas. Right brain thinking. We’re passionate about this; it’s the reason our clients come back.

The key to winning is effective differentiation. And effective differentiation comes from originality–thinking that is grounded in reason and infused with imagination.
