What our Client's Say

Our Firm

IBC specializes in helping boutique Management Consulting firms with their everyday requirements of Research, Analysis or simply Data. For these firms, IBC’s model mimics the benefits that top-tier Consulting Firms derive from their centralized pool of researchers (or knowledge centres): flexibility, scalability & cost-effectiveness.

We, at IBC, strongly believe that emerging consulting firms globally should have access to quality research at their finger-tips.

In addition to consultants, IBC also helps other Professional Services firms (like PE/VC funds), mid-size companies & start-ups or entrepreneurs, in answering any business questions that they may have.

While we work on global regions, most of our projects are focused on US, UK, Australia & Middle-East. Our team is industry-agnostic as we research several different industries and even niche-spaces.

Why Us

In today’s dynamic business environment, getting the most from limited resources has become increasingly important – not only for companies, but also for Consultants who help these companies. Management Consultants have an increasing need to focus their time and attention on high-impact activities.

We take care of the groundwork and desk research so that you can focus your energy and skills on thought leadership. The biggest limitation for many individual business coaches and consultants, as well as new consulting firms, is that they don’t always have a dedicated team to scale up and tap into potential business opportunities. IBC solves this problem by providing the surge capacity to optimize project deliveries.

IBC fills the gap between a full-time researcher and a freelancer, bringing out the best of both worlds. We offer the dedicated, professional and scalable research support that you expect from a full-timer, but at the cost and with the flexibility of a freelancer. Whether it’s a small quick-turnaround research task, or an extensive research project spread over months, IBC’s unique work model is the ideal solution.

IBC takes pride in its extended team of highly accomplished and enthusiastic associates, who have degrees in business, finance, strategy, marketing, statistics, journalism, mathematics, computer science, etc. Thanks to this deep bench of talent, we are able to help on research projects from a wide range of subjects.
