Elevation Construction Network is a new award winning, business mentoring and development network for companies operating in the construction sector. The first branch opened in Wexford in February 2016 and consists of 38 non- competitive members.
The company was trying to replicate the construction network established in Wexford in other regions in Ireland where they were unknown. They needed assistance to innovate and develop their business model and value proposition to ensure adoption in these new markets.
RIKON undertook a literature review, extensive research into the external environment, and industry trends and competitors best practices in Ireland, UK and Continental Europe. RIKON reviewed the European market to find assistance and contacts that could be used to by Elevation Construction Network to make their offering more attractive to prospective members.
RIKON assisted Elevation Construction Network to identify not just what potential member might want but what they needed based on the critical problems they were facing so that they could find solutions that could be introduced as member benefits that would enhance their value proposition. In addition, we developed a structured approach for Elevation Construction Networks route into new markets.
