PARAGON Development was formed in 2001 with consultants
who together represent decades of experience in varied industries as well as with other
consulting organizations. We are pioneers in Voice-of-Market,
which has been used by many leading organizations to create measurable new value from successful
business development and optimized planning.
PARAGON clients' successes are derived from access
to and engaging the leaders in the PARAGON Network. The Voice-of-Market Process
generates business, competitive, market and technology information in an objective, confidential
and unbiased way. It also enables organizations to achieve a very valuable objective: Development
and Planning with targeted markets and customers without prematurely committing to
individual customers and partners until it is advantageous.
Venturing: PARAGON Development
is also a comprehensive resource for corporate venturing as well as partnering with Venture
Capital. It supports venturing programs in support of its parent company (PARAGON Venture
Companies, Inc.) and this support ranges from Voice-of-Market consulting on a fee-for-service
basis to hands-on involvement in ventures with equity in the ventures.
