As your startup grows, strategic and opportunistic acquisitions and alliances could help transform your business and help you grow stronger and faster. The right deals—if executed and integrated well—may present unparalleled opportunities to add significant value and scale to your business and help accelerate your vision and market leadership.

STRATEGIC MARKET POSITIONING & INVESTMENT THESIS

Positioning your company properly and strategically is a key differentiator when you are looking to raise larger rounds of capital from large institutional investors, particularly for Series B and beyond.

CAPITAL RAISING DUE DILIGENCE PREPARATION

Raising capital is not just about getting the meeting. It is making sure you are well prepared to instill confidence and demonstrate—through robust diligence readiness—that your company will succeed and worthy of large investments.  While you may be able to do much of this internally, you would prefer to (and should) prioritize your time on running and growing your company. This is where we can help.

STRATEGIC FINANCE & OPERATIONS CONSULTING

Whether this means knowing and applying the right operating and financial insights to strategically drive and support growth, or institutionalizing your controls, processes, infrastructure and systems to handle rapid growth, this is an important stage for your company to get this right.

We help provide business development and strategic perspectives to help you uncover, foster and execute strategic corporate partnerships opportunities—from client development to go-to-market partnerships to co-branding opportunities—to rapidly accelerate growth and scale. 

INVESTOR & LENDER RELATIONS

Investors play a major and vital role in the success and growth of your startup. As such, it’s critical for startups to maintain strong, transparent relationships with investors. This becomes even more important as your startup grows into a later stage, pre-IPO company, as proactive and effective investor relations can have a meaningful impact on your company’s valuation and future IPO success.

EXIT STRATEGY, ALTERNATIVES & PREPARATION

Should the time come for you to consider exit alternatives and return the highest possible value for your investors and stakeholders, it is imperative to consider the best vehicle and exit timing for you, your investors, employees, other stakeholders.
