Dr Steve Bone started his working life as an industrial chemist and materials scientist before becoming a business director for the sensor division of Thorn EMI.
For the last 25 years he has occupied leadership positions in leading technology, innovation and strategy consulting firms – namely PA Consulting Group, Arthur D Little and the Monitor Group – before forming nu Angle with Dr Peter Allen, a physicist with a similar background to Steve’s.
Steve has helped clients grow their businesses through innovation and technology management in a wide range of sectors – chemicals, pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics, biotechnology, and fast moving consumer goods. He is also a recognised thought leader, having written papers on trends towards virtual R&D (before ‘open innovation’), technology strategy and applying core competency thinking to R&D. He has worked on developing the approaches and thinking to technology strategy, growth platforms and technology business incubation whilst working at nu Angle and is now applying them to very successful assignments in Europe, USA and China.
Steve retired from his full-time Director role at nu Angle in March 2019 to pursue other interests, but he still helps the nu Angle teams on an ad hoc basis.
