Selected Projects

  • Business Intelligence

    A large hedge fund approached Northshore to help them obtain transparency into how their firm was operating across many divisions. Northshore rapidly built a beautiful customized business intelligence application for the executive team, who were highly appreciative of the "get-it-done" attitude by Northshore in the face of significant time pressure.

  • Driving Culture Change

    A large financial services client approached Northshore to assist them with redefining their corporate culture after the financial crisis in 2009. By sharing important lessons learned from other financial institutions cultural challenges, and taking a pragmatic approach to what was implementable given the existing culture, we were able to assist the client in coming up with a practical approach to moving forward.

  • Firm Advisory

    A Private-equity backed Retail Services firm reached out to Northshore for strategic advisory as it was evaluating a pivot from being a provider to a data intelligence firm. Given Northshore's roots providing strategic growth advisory at McKinsey & Company, we were able to help the firm think through various options and arrive at key decisions.

  • Web + Mobile Portal

    Business sponsors at our financial services client emphatically applauded Northshore for delivering a "fantastic" and "beautiful" experience after they approached us to build an employee support portal for their internal mobile solutions. The solution was optimized for viewing on employee desktops and iPads.

  • “As reach | influence looked to build its next generation retail analytics platform, we turned to Northshore Partners to quickly assess our current offering and provide us with a plan to achieve our technology goals. Not only did the team quickly grasp what we were trying to achieve and provide thought leadership, but they also offered unprompted and valuable insight into related business operations.”

    Chief Operating Officer—[ri] reach | influence

  • “As a venture fund with a portfolio containing emerging technologies, we required a group that would bring both a strength in strategy and technical acumen to the table. Northshore, under Inderpal's leadership, brought far more in their ability to synthesize the business objectives of our portfolio companies and advise our leadership on strategy. Northshore was then able to move this strategy forward into a relevant technology vision for one of our holdings.”

  • “The strategic and goal-oriented thinking at Northshore is a clear differentiation from almost any other technology partner we have worked with. Not only can they provide thought leadership and vision, but they accurately translated that into a robust, quality product with limited involvement from our team. They were a true extension of our firm.”


    Head of Product Management, Asset Management Firm

  • “The team at Northshore quickly understood our goals, deeply partnered with us to define the product, and delivered a compelling and beautiful user experience that has received very positive feedback. And then they did it again”
