  • “ODG is set to target consumer augmented reality, after making AR glasses for NASA, the US military and BMW. Digi-Capital’s Tim Merel gave us insights with his deep industry knowledge and foresight, accelerating even our AR/VR road map. I suspect we’re not alone - he seems to know everyone.”

    RALPH OSTERHOUT, CEO/FOUNDER ODG
  • “I’ve always been a fan of Digi-Capital's augmented/virtual reality expertise, very detailed work and crystal-clear conclusions, as well as their passion for the industry. They're a pace-maker for AR/VR globally.”

    FELIX ROEKEN, VP CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT MICROSOFT/HAVOK

    IAN LIVINGSTONE CBE, LIFE PRESIDENT EIDOS

My execs changed from 'what can these guys teach us?' to 'how can we implement a new mobile strategy?' after the first meeting. I see a lot of management consultants who tell me their personal opinions, but Digi-Capital only gives us solid facts, analysis and direct relationships from around the world."

    ROD COUSENS, CEO JAGEX/CODEMASTERS

  • “I’m a huge fan of Digi-Capital’s analysis, and their research is something I come back to often for the latest insight and detailed knowledge. They have proven time and again their ability to spot key trends, not just reporting on what has already happened.”

    REX NG, FOUNDER 6WAVES
  • "Digi-Capital spotted us a long time before we were known in the industry, before we won Start-up of the Year.

    VICENC MARTI, CEO AKAMON

    KONSTANTIN EWALD, PARTNER OSBORNE CLARKE
  • "You get your industry guys, your tech guys, your management guys and your VC/banker guys. They may as well be from different planets, and they don't talk the same language. Digi-Capital's Tim Merel is all those guys, and I don't know a lot of folks like that."

    MARK LONG, CO-FOUNDER ZOMBIE STUDIOS

    BEN VU, FOUNDER SKYVU
  • "We’re a US-based mobile platform for iOS, Android and HTML5 development, so building relationships across regions means a lot to us. Digi-Capital took us into China, opening doors which might otherwise have been closed."
