Athenorm Systematic Methodology
Evaluation and Exploration

As we dive into your business's potential, illustrating clearly upcoming opportunities and evaluate the challenges ahead is always the focus.
Consultation in feasibility
The Feasibility Study covers technical and/or financial viability of an idea. Technical feasibilities will compare existing blockchains protocols or products to achieve a specific goal, bespoke blockchain designs can be included in the study if necessary. These studies play a major role for startups looking to raise capital, the study will be written by people very respected in their industry. We start every mandate with a full audit of your actual needs and situation.
Proof of concept & sprints
Building a prototype or a proof of concept requires specialist knowledge to be done efficiently.
The Athenorm team has years of blockchain experience, most of us being engaged in the development of the protocols themselves.
Athenorm construct prototypes while testing in agile cycle. If you need a product to be built quickly and to your specifications, we are the right partner to engage with.
Theoretical research and whitepapers
When an idea or problem has never been solved before, our team can work on research papers to be published or used as supporting material to fund a project. These studies require deep expertise and are usually taking a few weeks of time to be completed. Athenorm papers are written by recognized figures in the industry.

We can also guide you to choose the best teams to develop your products depending on its characteristics. There is no "one size fits all" blockchain.
