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.
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.
|Access to Diverse Skills||High||High||Low|
|Reliability & Professionalism||Low||High||High|
|Hiring & Training Cost||High||Low||High|
IBC has a world-class team of subject matter and process experts. Most of our associates have degrees in business, finance, marketing, engineering, IT, science and other relevant disciplines. Our proprietary training programs in functional areas, as well as in communications, project management, and leadership skills, serve to supplement their academic education and enhance their effectiveness.
The same exceptional level of achievement and breadth of knowledge is reflected in our administrative team.

HOW WE WORK
IBC Consultants offers a range of engagement models that make it easy for our clients to customize their solutions for optimum value and productivity. Our highly flexible and scalable options allow you to design a plan that lets you achieve your goals with minimum hassle and maximum efficiency. Select the model that's right for you:
Fixed Price Model
For well-defined projects with specific beginning and ending dates, we can quote and agree on a fixed price.
If your need for assistance is less predictable, but you need help for a specific number of hours each month, we provide a dedicated assistant to work with you on a one-to-one basis for a regular hourly fee.
If you have intermittent short-term projects with indefinite time requirements, then you may want to buy a prepaid block of hours to use when you need them.
For Research Firms
We partner with research teams from other regions and with different strengths in order to better serve clients and build productive relationships. If your company needs help with region-specific work (e.g., involving India or Singapore) or would like to take advantage of our expertise in specific areas, we encourage you to get in touch with us. In addition, if there are companies or individuals that you’re unable to serve but who might benefit from our services, we invite you to become a referral affiliate. For every client you refer to us, you’ll receive a percentage of income generated in the first year. With our excellent track record and superior resources, you can be certain that we will provide your referrals with the highest-quality services. Please contact us to find out more about our affiliate program and specific referral rates.
For Business Gurus/Consulting Firms
IBC regularly partners with Business Coaches and Consulting Firms to provide Remote Business Analyst support for their ongoing client work. By partnering with IBC, you are able to keep your permanent staff levels low, while still being able to effectively service a broad range of clients. The client relationship remains entirely in your hands; while we provide the back-end research to help you deliver first-rate results every time. Please contact us to discuss potential partnership opportunities in more detail.
