As demand for its services continues to rise, NineSigma has also opened locations in closer proximity to its worldwide client base. The company opened a Japanese headquarters five years ago, a European headquarters three years ago, and an Australian office this year.

The company's services include fully facilitated technology searches; technology landscaping; design and prototyping of new products; coaching and consulting with innovation leaders and their teams; trend monitoring and strategy; and much more. In its searches for new solution providers, the firm blends a unique approach to defining needs/challenges, reaching across traditional boundaries, and filtering responses to quickly match clients with quality technologies and knowledge that they require.
