Our mission at FIBRES is to help corporations and consultancies succeed with foresight.
In the olden days, change used to be linear.
Doing the same thing more efficiently, affordably, or aesthetically was enough to sway the buyer and grab market share.
Today, change is exponential. The market changes rapidly, and new competition emerges across industry boundaries. Traditional market research fails to give reliable results.
Foresight methodologies – collecting weak signals, identifying future trends, and building alternative scenarios – are a must-have for companies who want to stay relevant in the less predictable, and faster changing environment.
Proper tools for efficient foresight have lacked. Many organizations find themselves paying consultants for general foresight, or collecting signals by hand and compiling insights into slide decks or spreadsheets.
We wanted to build a foresight tool that makes it easy for companies to collect signals, make sense of trends, and share those insights within the whole organization – in short, to build a foresight function that matters.
FIBRES to this day
2010: FIBRES is founded as a future consultancy
At the beginning of our journey, we helped companies do what they now can achieve with FIBRES: scout for new opportunities, recognize new trends, and future proof their business.
2016: First version of FIBRES tool is born to support consultancy work
Noticing that few tools existed to support foresight work, we started to build one of our own. Saving signals in one place, a core feature of FIBRES today, is born.
2017: FIBRES transforms into a SaaS foresight platform
Getting accepted into the Stuttgart Autobahn Startup Accelerator Program, and starting a co-creation effort with Daimler, a leading actor in the foresight space, supercharge our transformation into a SaaS business.
2020: A new growth phase is begun backed by angel investors
Bootstrapping the business thus far, FIBRES is ready to take its first round of external investment. Together with our investors and customers, we’re building FIBRES into the best platform for efficient foresight work.
