About Harlin

Since 2006 Harlin Ltd has been providing business development, market evaluation and technology impact consultancy services to companies, schools and universities, trade associations and charities.

Many organisations need to adapt to rapidly varying markets and keep long-term costs to a minimum. Getting external support to understanding the potential impact of new business directions avoids distracting internal teams from existing customers, and this maximises the information available.  At Harlin we enable clients to understand demand, investment impact and the full potential for new product development whilst supporting early engagement with key customers and funding organisations.

We predominantly focus on the huge variety of applications integrating photonics technology leveraging Dr John Lincoln’s ~3 decades of experience in the field and frequently drawing on an international network of collaborators.
