Business Modeling

Bringing together a wide range of industry expertise and state of the art business tools, we help startups create a roadmap for their venture. We incorporate lean startup and agile development principles to deliver winning investor pitches for funding and future growth.

Financial Modeling and Valuation

We develop a full set of financial projections based on our proprietary CURVE ™ (Cost – Users – Revenue – Valuation for Entrepreneurs) model, to be incorporated in business plans and investor presentations. We also create customized valuation reports to support fundraising activities and compliance situations.

IP Strategy

We create an IP roadmap aligning the company’s innovations with its products and corporate vision. We advise companies on the monetization opportunities embedded in IP-driven business models.
