About us

We wanted to build the foresight tool that would support teams of strategists, innovators, and changemakers in their own foresight work.

Our story

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 – have proven useful to stay relevant in this fast-changing environment.

Buying trend reports, summaries, or generic trend radars is one way to navigate change. The problem, however, is that general foresight can't give answers in your context.

Often, the most impactful work is done in-house, with your own people.

That's why we're building a tool for building your own futures intelligence. We want to support you in the in-house foresight work you are already doing, or wish the get started.

FIBRES makes it easy for teams to collect signals, make sense of future topics, and share those insights with the rest of the company – in short, to build your own foresight.


Our short history


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.
