We help managers and entrepreneurs accelerate growth, increase
value, and avoid costly missteps — as they create and grow businesses based
on innovative science and technology.
Our approach involves a blend of analysis, strategic advisory services,
and hands-on execution — and is uniquely tailored for each engagement to
help accomplish a specific, agreed upon, business objective.
What problems do we help solve?
Clients seek our help with challenges like how to
grow faster; or how to improve the chance of success of a new venture or growth initiative.
New ventures seek help to:
Maximize valuation at various “deal points”;
Cross the finish line faster, with less investment;
Avoid potentially disastrous errors along the way; or
Complete key milestones, for which their team lacks bandwidth, or skills.
Established businesses seek help to:
Improve the ROI of growth initiatives;
Increase enterprise value faster than the core business is growing; or
Improve the outcome of an M&A initiative.
Can we help you?
Who do we work with? We work with startups;large, established companies;
and research organizations — in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific
Most of our clients are focused on growth: through new products, new markets,
new business initiatives, or acquisitions. Innovative science or technology of
some type is often at the heart of their business.
Recent engagements have been in the fields of life sciences, communications,
cleantech, homeland security, and applications of photonics & small-tech.
Why get help?Some clients face challenging problems they are not sure how to solve.
Some have incomplete management teams, and need to outsource specific functions.
Some need vital strategic inputs, but need them only intermittently. Some want
an objective independent assessment of a situation. Others know what to do, and
how to do it, but lack bandwidth. We have helped in each of these situations.
