We’ll work with you to identify the weakest elements of your pitch, correct them, and develop a compelling story designed to get you to that important next meeting.
The most important factor of startup success is—by far—the founder. While potential investors may never tell you what’s wrong, we will be brutally honest—and we’ll help you to overcome the obstacles that are holding you back.
Business Model Biopsy
You’ve got a great idea, but is it a real business? Unfortunately, many founders can’t answer this question to the satisfaction of stakeholders, including potential investors. We’ll deconstruct and correct your business economics.
Brand Foundation Diagnosis and Reconstruction
Brand Foundation is often ignored or hastily thrown together, but it’s a fundamental and critical guide to decision making at all levels of your business. We’ll walk you through the process to ensure that your startup has a solid start.
It’s hard to take businesses with bad names seriously, but finding a good name can be so difficult and time consuming that many founders simply give up, or they fall in love with a name that’s embarrassingly bad. We’ll produce at least 5 names that are better than your current one, with rationale behind each.
