Consulting firms tend to look the same. Same business model, same jargon, same claims on what they can do for you. We designed Naissance differently in ways that matter to our clients. We set out three principles:

Partners Do the Work

No army of junior analysts. No outsourcing. We are fully invested in everything we do.

Repackage Nothing

We start every project with a clean slate. Everything from our frameworks to our PowerPoint text is developed originally for every client.

Efficiency Matters

Nobody should sacrifice quality, and that quality should come with as much speed and as little cost as possible.
