R&D4Equity Origins: Turn-Key R&D

In 2011, Miratech began contracting with customers to provide an entire R&D team to its client from the CIO/CTO down, delivering the entire IT department. Known as our Turn-Key R&D solution, this solution was evolved from the traditional 4th quadrant model developed in 2003, by Paul Harmon. Miratech innovated this model by splitting the 4th quadrant into “outsourced/in-house/shared” roles. This approach creates tremendous alignment of business goals, allowing both start-ups and Miratech to solve technology needs faster, reducing errors, costs and accelerating time to market.

Today, Miratech integrates this program into our R&D4Equity solution. By literally insourcing a highly skilled proven technology team, start-ups and investors:

  • Eliminate any potential, high-risk single point-of failure
  • Accelerate the development and delivery cycles
  • Enable start-up leadership to focus on their operational and selling models
  • Succeed 99% of the time in delivering technology on time and on budget, with an average of 0.05% degects per 1 Function Point
  • Our First Turn-Key Solution That Led to R&D4Equity

    I​n 2015, Miratech began a unique strategic partnership with Axactor, now a leading European company acquiring and collecting non-performing loans and providing debt-collection and accounts receivable management services for third parties. Today, Miratech supports Axactor’s entire IT team from CIO down in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Italy, and Spain with a large team of people from 5 countries, including Spain, Poland, Germany, Italy, and Ukraine. In just four years, Miratech has helped Axactor grow over 500%, and today their shares trade on the Stockholm Stock Exchange.


    ​Today we design and support Axactor’s entire technology solution and platform, having reached less than 2.2% of sales in 2019, which is 3.5 times better than the industry average!


    Creating an Efficient Development Lifecycle

    The unique ability to scale technical resources through product lifecycle development is another value added feature the R&D4Equity program provides to start-ups. For example, at the beginning a start-up requires a significant capacity of business analysts and software architecture engineers. As the engagement progresses, the need shifts to DevOps, QA, production support. Once the mature product is developed, the final staffing phase focuses on scalability and professional services. Because we have portfolio companies that are in different development phases, start-ups have access to the right resources at the right time, dramatically reducing risks and costs.

    The R&D4Equity Ecosystem... Where Innovation Accelerates

    Expanding a partnership model in a fractured world. In today’s complicated geopolitical climate — one in which global enterprises have a tendency to turn inward in an effort to protect their economic and political interests — inclusion, connectedness and collaboration are even more vital. As we prepare for the inevitable changes still to come and the complexity of the global challenges facing us, the business community’s spirit of collaboration and forward-looking position on forging strategic partnerships will be critical to developing scalable solutions and impact. Fostering greater strategic collaboration will be a critical driver of innovation, growth and social impact in 2018 and beyond.

    ​​Today, R&D4Equity has evolved into a world-class model of innovation. With a global community of investors, global enterprise industry leaders and entrepreneurs, together they are transforming the way start-ups capitalize their company, build their teams, open markets, and accelerate their speed to market. This statement from the World Economic Forum describes the same framework and innovation partnership catalyst that led to the “R&D4Equity” Value Innovation Model created by Miratech.
