Who are you?
How can we help Investors?
We recognize a need for both founder & investor to plan & implement growth processes to ensure the smoothest product market fitness. Also, Founders may face distractions easily by reporting and process-based obligations, whereas investors desire more structured KPI-driven reporting. To bridge these gaps, we offer services of managers for growth hacking (constant or workshop-based) & support in structuring the process experimenting, coupled with stakeholder management standards implementation. If needed, we can also set non-core processes to ensure founder can focus on core business. Both sides can benefit from the guidance of the Interim Manager.Our pricing model includes a monthly fee and the option of a competitive percentage fee from the next financing round or an additional fee from the current investment round.
We know how difficult it is to focus on a startup to grow & source professional non-core services without incurring high costs. This is why we have a group of professional legal, marketing, HR, finance & admin partners. The engagement depends on what is stated by our team in a so-called short review project. We build the bridge to let Founder focus on delivering KPIs to attract investors in the next financing round.The pricing is based on a monthly fee & depends on key issues defined in the review.
Financing support (startup sourcing & screening, M&A)
We connect Investors & Founders from our partnership portfolio but we also specialize in effective & quick sourcing, scouting & screening of startup ecosystem to find a match for your investment strategy. Our SSC team is experienced in M&A startup support, including technical & commercial due diligence, TermSheet negotiations & Invesment agreement preparation.The pricing model is a fixed fee depending on the service provided.
How can we help Founders?
We have a growing pool of dedicated business "drivers" who can support you in structuring the product & company growth for 6-9 months till the startup is of a size justifying you leaving your current job.Simple pricing model allowing to save 10-25% of your equity for a future co-founder.
Quick validation methods & workshops, incl. MVP based on no-code/low-code
We understand there are lots of concepts that require quick market validation. We have experience in testing products using our venture building techniques (over 35 methods gathered & tested), including low-code/no-code solutions developed by our IT/Product ownership team specialized in such projects. A typical MVP no-code project shall take no more than 2 months, business analysis included.The pricing is based on fixed fee depending on the project scope.
Connecting with Investors, including investment materials
We have a growing network of investors that are open for a cooperation with mature-minded founders. We match them & give senior advisory support while negotiating the terms.
Also, we create/review professional investment materials, including project valuation, investment proposal or pitch deck.The pricing is based on % of the transaction value + fixed fee for investment materials.
We know how difficult it is to focus on a startup to grow & source professional non-core services without incurring high costs. This is why we have a group of professional legal, marketing, HR, finance & admin partners. We have two simple subscriptions for these services.The pricing is fixed & simple, not more than the cost of one employee on the payroll.
How can we help build & test your business idea?
We have experience in venture building, especially in PoC & MVP phases, both for corporates & individual investors. We will check your business idea in a maximum of 5 months since we use an asset-light non-corporate model. We also help structure the early-stage business & execute market rollout.We work for larger venture building companies, including ideation & validation workshops on demand, as well as reshaping business or growth model of a launched project.The pricing model is fee or fee+equity.
