Services for Entrepreneurs

Our free original insight is paid for by Advisory Services. Our clients benefit from our ability to to deliver results by combining deep industry knowledge, powerful relationships, big picture vision and pragmatic execution.

Our clients come in all shapes and sizes.  They include entrepreneurs at investor funded startups and “intrapreneurs” transforming existing financial institutions.

There has never been a better time to be an entrepreneur with mass adoption of mobile, crashing cost of building tech and lots of disruptive technology such as Blockchain and AI.

However, we all need some help along the way. This page describes how we work for entrepreneurs – the advisory services that pay for this original research. Examples of our work include:

Outside In review.

When you are launching something new, it helps to get a view from somebody who is “outside” (not involved in building the solution) but who is an expert in the market and knows the trends and competition in your space.

Inflection Point growth coaching.

Inflection points include a major fund raising, an acquisition or merger offer or an opportunity to grow through acquisition or bringing somebody onto the top management team. Sometimes you want somebody who is not a) part of the internal team (either Board or Management) or b) an external adviser who is motivated by a transactional outcome.

Partnership Deal coaching.

We advise on growth through both north and south facing partnerships:

  • North facing relationships enable you to drive revenue (directly or indirectly) with companies who are in the layers above you in the stack.

 

  • South facing relationships enable you to build out your complete product with  companies who are in the layers below you in the stack.

We are networked, agile and discrete:

  • Networked. Key players in the global Fintech ecosystem trust us to deliver unique insight about Fintech into their inbox every day. Because these key players respect our deep industry knowledge and big picture vision, they pick up the phone when we call. This enables us to bring valuable opportunities to our clients. 

 

  • Agile. We are agile (meaning we deliver results fast) because we are able to assemble the most effective team for your needs and because of our ability to tap into our network. In today’s fast-paced world, execution requires a multi-disciplinary team that combines technology, legal/regulatory, marketing/sales and finance. We assemble the team you need now based on relevant talent.  

 

  • Discrete. We always respect Confidentiality. The only time you will see our clients mentioned on our site is when we put a disclosure in a post.
