About kibikibi Partners

When we set up kibikibi Partners we were keen to bring the rich and diverse expertise and skills we had developed in the corporate world into the emerging product environment.

All great products start life in small businesses. Large corporations depend on this innovation to move their own product development forward, but here's the challenge. As a small, cash poor early stage company its hard to break into and navigate around your emerging customer landscape. As a large corporation its not always easy to find the innovation you need because early stage companies do not have the resources to promote and professionally manage customer relationships. 

The value we bring to our clients is the ability to intelligently make connections between early stage companies and large business, because we have years of experience doing it. We thrive on bringing small innovations to large enterprises because we know that both parties benefit from working with each-other.
