Driving value and return on investment.

How does the process work?

We start with a kick-off call - to learn everything about your business and what we need help with. Then we come back with some thoughts on next steps and suggested actions. We work on a minimum retainer of 4 days per month per client.

Can you help me raise money?

Yes we can. Across our clients we have raised >£10m in equity financing since 2018.

What type of companies do we work with?

Startups are businesses created by entrepreneurs to create new and irreplaceable goods. Using our help, you should be able to create and implement a new idea with quick success. Scaling a business is crucial for developing mature, proven services once the startup has reached the “birth” stage. A key to this phase is establishing a solid business model focused on profitability and sustainable growth. This involves understanding the importance of customers, their needs, and feedback, which are essential for startup success - we will help you with this throughout your journey. Additionally, leveraging technology plays a significant role in the development and scaling of startups, driving innovation and continuous expansion. We help you to become a scaling company, that can achieve your profitable scalable model using our deep experience developing and understanding business strengths and weaknesses, emphasizing the need for a scalable business model, deep customer connections, and technological innovation for long-term success.

What do we do as advisors for startups?

We help organisations understand their challenges and solve issues relating to their operation to increase productivity and improve profitability. This gives the company more freedom and confidence as a whole. Market research is essential in understanding customer demand and validating business strategies, ensuring that companies are aligned with market needs and opportunities. We are a collection of industry experts who specialize in the understanding and defining of companies’ objectives, identifying their key issues and providing strategic recommendations for achieving financial success. Incorporating market share into our strategic recommendations highlights its role in growing revenue, margin, and enhancing employee engagement through effective strategies and optimized operations. We will provide expert insights into business strategy and business growth, emphasizing revenue growth as a key metric of success. Most startups face the challenge of maintaining momentum, and an unhealthy founder can lead to a loss of momentum or collapse from within. Our role as advisors is crucial in helping these startups overcome such challenges through self-development and well-being advice.

Do you provide services in return for equity?

We have done this in the past and it is something we would always consider discussing. Whilst a small monthly retainer will always be needed, we understand that finances can be tight and so we work with our clients to ensure we are both driving a return on their investment and working to any budget requirements that they have.
