Testimonials

"All R&D companies like ours have good ideas but despite popular belief even good ideas don’t sell themselves. Multiply are a key part of our strategy to put our ideas in front the right people at the right time in the right way to maximize our chance of success."

Jeremy Bliss, Director, Steamology Motion Ltd

“MULTIPLY’s entrepreneurial mindset and unique experience, from digital in FTSE100 companies to the commercialisation of space rockets, brings a fresh perspective to Donaco that has been integral when navigating the early stages of building a tech startup. MULTIPLY is extremely approachable and have provided key insights as we developed our customer proposition, built commercial partnerships and defined our route to market. As we are now preparing to raise a seed round of funding, we know we can rely on MULTIPLY to strategically guide us and ensure we successfully reach our next milestone.”

Michael Moses, Founder, Donaco

Natasha and Clarisse seamlessly integrated into our small team that was finalising a two year European Space Agency Demonstration Package. They were able to bring expert resource across a number of disciplines to help guide our transition from a pure R&D business to become commercially focused, strategically aware, and structurally sound to begin our journey of selling to a multi-billion pound global market place."

Julian Martin-Redman, Director, Point4Geo

"MULTIPLY designed and led a proposition programme exploring new markets and business models that could realise step-change opportunities. They effectively engaged with the leadership team to simplify a very complex topic in a two-day workshop. Delivering tangible outputs with clear propositions to take forward.

Our experience of MULTIPLY was primarily associated with Natasha Allden.  Natasha’s passion, for value creation comes through in every aspect of her work.  She attracts other very credible individuals to work with her, who then also focus very much on creating value.  The deep domain expertise was a key factor for us, elevating the intervention above the usual offerings.  This enabled a rapid sense of relevance and realism for the team, whilst also being extremely proactive and progressive.  Hence participants found it an inspiring and developmental activity that lifted their horizons and work into a more strategic level, whilst also generating outputs which were meaningful for them and for the business to take forward."

Dr. Miles Adcock, President Space & Quantum, Teledyne e2v

"The next wave of innovation in the space sector is going to be underpinned by robotics and autonomous operations.  Through leadership in regulation, the UK has a large proportion of start-ups in the area of in-orbit servicing and debris removal.  By building capability in autonomous robotic operations needed for servicing and debris removal, these capabilities can strongly position the UK for future opportunities based around in-orbit construction and assembly.  From fractionated constellations to massive antenna and telescopes to space energy and exploration the need and opportunity for robotics is huge. The UK has strong robotics capability in academia and adjacent industries and bringing these communities toward the space sector is a critical element in supporting the UK toward a strong an ambitious future in space. The work of Multiply space is a key part of this and we look forward to supporting these efforts and pulling the communities together to drive prosperity and growth."

About Multiply

Natasha founded MULTIPLY in 2015 with the vision to unleash the potential in technology and people to realise value through technology transfer.

“When I got a call in 2015 from a contact asking 'Do you want to come and play with rocket cars?' I, of course, said yes.

When I first saw the supersonic car I marveled at the ingenuity and technology that made up this perfectly aerodynamic system. What I also saw was untapped potential – potential to commercialise and build sustainable business and industries by looking at the challenge laterally. I asked myself, how do you sustain, scale, and de-risk advanced engineering companies of the future, that’s when I founded MULTIPLY.”

Natasha Allden, CEO
