    Market Entry Strategy & Execution:  Our senior level expertise is designed to help a company avoid mistakes, delays, and bad decisions in their expansion phase.  Since we’re based in Silicon Valley and work with startups all over the world, we understand the best practices for creating and growing companies, identifying strategic markets and growth opportunities.  We have assessed and scored hundreds of technology startups and listened to many, many company pitches.  So we understand what prospective investors and customers want to hear and how to present information in a compelling manner. Some of the ways we serve companies:

    ·         Gap identification
    ·         Market validation meetings and interviews
    ·         90-day work plan creation and execution
