Who We Are

Avascent is the leading independent strategy and management consulting firm with more than 30 years’ experience supporting corporate leaders, investors and government stakeholders in the aerospace, defence, security, and public services markets.

Our Value Proposition

FOCUS

We have deep roots in the industries we serve. Where others claim coverage across numerous industries, we have consistently focused on a handful of core sectors. We recognise that real insights require deep domain expertise to drive effective growth-enabling strategies.

REACH

We operate within and across borders, combining global coverage with local presence. Government-driven industries have distinct requirements. We are uniquely positioned to respond to our clients’ need for trusted, yet broadly informed expert advice. Our operating model in Europe is geared to addressing the particular national, regional, and global dynamics shaping our clients’ activities and priorities.

PASSION

We are passionate about our work and the industries we serve. Our people, regardless of their background, share a keen interest in and appreciation for the interplay between government, business and technology. You can only be consistently excellent at something you love.

Our focus, reach and passion ensure we deliver knowledge, understanding, and practical solutions to our clients’ most challenging problems.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Sectors

Avascent serves a diverse range of clients, from top-tier defence and aerospace leaders to space and satellite developers, as well as private equity and finance managers providing clients with the insights they need to make informed decisions.

Services

Avascent’s services encompass corporate and business line strategy, international market expansion (to include selection, entry, partnering, and business development organisational development), customer strategy and marketing, business capture and pricing, and M&A strategy development and execution. We combine these offerings with a deep understanding of how to assist leaders to develop balanced organisations that are aligned with their strategies and objectives.

Strategy & Growth

Avascent supports clients seeking to extend or redefine the boundaries of their growth potential: from core into adjacent markets (diversification and new market entry), from established into emerging products and services (portfolio management and realignment), from national into international markets (geographic expansion and internationalisation strategies). Avascent emphasizes a rigorous understanding of the external environment as the foundation of a winning strategy, grounded in facts and insights that challenge internal biases and legacy thinking to provide a new basis for long-term growth.

Business Capture & Pricing

With particular focus on strategically important pursuits, Avascent provides targeted assistance to understand and shape customer requirements, select the right partners, and differentiate from competitors. We also provide best in class analytical cost modeling and Price-to-Win support built on solid empirical data, industry-leading parametric models, and rigorous customer and competitive analysis. With more than two decades of experience supporting business development executives and capture teams, Avascent has the expertise, tools, and methodologies to maximise our clients’ prospects for success.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Avascent has worked with strategic and financial buyers from around the world to develop and execute campaigns to drive non-organic growth. Focusing particularly on “game changing” strategic acquisitions, we help clients align their M&A strategy with emerging market opportunities and move aggressively toward an acquisition decision without succumbing to “deal fever.” Particularly for firms looking at new sectors or those with relatively little M&A experience, Avascent can be a critical catalyst, helping leaders accelerate the decision-making process.
