Fahrenheit – Capgemini
Innovation & Design Consultancy
Fahrenheit 212 Acquired by Capgemini
Based in New York City and London, Fahrenheit 212 was founded on the premise that innovation – as a systematized capability – can be both a learned discipline and a predictable driver of growth. Highly entrepreneurial and outcome-driven, Fahrenheit 212 has spent the last 12 years developing growth opportunities for clients such as The Coca-Cola Company, Marriott, and Citi. The innovation strategy and consumer-centric design firm offer cababilites including strategy development, brand development, business development, product development and other related services.
Capgemini’s acquisition of Fahreneit212 will augment the capabilities of the Group’s global strategy and transformation consulting organization, Capgemini Consulting, to provide new innovation, business transformation and digital customer experience solutions. This bolt on acquisition fits into Capgemini’s digital innovation growth strategy and opens growth opportunities for both companies through their combined capabilities. It will accelerate Capgemini Consulting’s ability to define new products, services and experiences for clients, while Fahrenheit 212 gains access to international implementation strengths and the Group’s global network of Applied Innovation Exchanges
Pharus was the ideal advisor for us. We needed a lot more than technical transaction expertise; we needed the strategic lens through which to choose the right partner among attractive but very diverse options. Pharus quickly developed a deep understanding of our business, along with the needs and desires of our partners, innovation professionals and customers. They were then instrumental in finding the combination that would transform Fahrenheit into the most deeply resourced and agile innovation firm, while still maintaining our culture. With Capgemini, we now gain access to a new ability to turn big ideas into not just prototypes, but enterprise level solutions. Without Pharus, this simply would not have happened.Todd RovakCEO & Managing Partner
