Research & Business Planning
We provide entrepreneurs with a research-based business plan that fits the stage the start-up is currently at. In the early stages, the insights of the research are the basis for the MVP definition and the go-to-market planning. In the advanced stage, we focus on the business development of the company.
The financial model is an excellent tool for simulating and understanding the business activities of the start-up. The expression of the business plan in numbers helps entrepreneurs and investors to assess the potential of the product and the profitability of the investment.
One Pager & Pitch Deck
Executive summary is a “resume” of the start-up with which entrepreneurs turn to investors. One Pager allows the investor, in less than a minute, to understand whether the start-up interests them or not. The investor’s initial level of interest depends on how relevant the start-up is to their investment scope, the stage, and the team. An investor presentation is a way of managing a meeting with the investor. The ability to tell an interesting story behind the project and simply explain the need for a product. The need for a product largely depends on the presentation level and the entrepreneur’s ability to pass the pitch convincingly.
Preparing for meetings with investors
Communication with investors is like a complicated dance with massive amounts of unwritten rules that the entrepreneur recognizes only after breaking one of them. The result is missed opportunities, and sometimes even image damage. We help maximize the entrepreneur’s ability to present the project professionally and accompany the staff in the negotiation process.
