Cambridge Consultants is a global product development and technology consultancy firm providing outsourced research and development services. It has been described as the third significant factor in the creation of Silicon Fen (after the invention of EDSAC and the discovery of DNA.) and as "The firm behind the future"
Cambridge Consultants was founded in 1960 by three Cambridge University graduates - Tim Eiloart, Rodney Dale, and David Southward - to "put the brains of Cambridge University at the disposal of the problems of British industry".
Initially, the company was privately run. In 1971, it became part of Arthur D. Little (ADL), an American management consultancy firm. In 2002, following ADL's process through Chapter 11, Cambridge Consultants management team acquired the company with the backing of Altran, a global innovation and engineering consulting firm.
