dMASS Inc. identifies hidden risks and opportunities for businesses and investors
Resources are at the heart of nearly every major challenge facing businesses and even entire economies around the globe today. There’s no doubt that the future is about delivering more benefits to more people using fewer tons of resources. Resource performance is the key to profitability and competitiveness in the marketplace, as well as the key to managing environmental impacts and risks.
We draw on our unique system for detecting and classifying innovations and resource trends to help business leaders and investors gain a competitive advantage. We use our wealth of experience in business and in environmental management to help our clients profitably align the two. We offer a positive, practical perspective for anyone interested in understanding the relationship between innovation and resource use today.

Naked Value Inspiration Report. We start with a deep understanding of your product, its functions, and the benefits it delivers to your customers, and then we use our growing database and varied experience to generate a report with materials, products in development and already on the market, emerging business models, and new technology and research that will impact your product or inspire you to rethink it. With our focus on benefits rather than products or industries and our unique lens on innovation, we identify risks and opportunities that are often missed.
