RDP commenced as a R&D tax credit consulting firm in 1987 in Toronto. From the beginning RDP focused on one mission; to connect clients Innovation with their bottom line. This vision lead to other ways in which RDP began to help our clients to link innovation to profit and a sustainable business.
Innovation is very general term but RDP breaks its services into two parts.
First we ensure clients are accessing all funding for innovation. This can include government grants, tax credits, patent schemes, crowdsource funding and venture capital funding.
Secondly that clients adopt the best practices, techniques and tools to ensure innovation is managed properly and contributes substantially to the bottom line. We work with companies to implement Innovation Management systems and offer the COSi (Cycle of Success program) which helps companies learn how to improve their own business and bottom line through teams, strategy, techniques and tools.
This path and mission has lead RDP to service some the largest corporations in world while maintaining our strong presence within the SME community.
RDP now operates in the UK, Canada and the US, with a full complement of professional staff.
