Commercial know-how for business success
Do you have an invention, innovative idea or new technology?
How will you turn it into a sustainable commercial business?
We can help you with:
Creative Strategic Planning
Strategic planning starts by defining the vision, the long term goals of the stakeholders. Then working backwards we’ll help you build a plan of action – practical steps we will take today to move us towards that vision.
No organisation has unlimited resources. Growing enterprises must take care to focus their limited capacity on the opportunities with the best payoff. We will help you identify the best markets to achieve the most rapid progress for the business…And then how to expand into other markets.
Innovative business-development initiatives
There are many different ways to deliver value to your chosen markets: face-to-face, online, directly or indirectly. Technology is enhancing and expanding the paths to market. Sometimes a combination of business models is needed… and this may change with time. We will help you choose those paths best suited to achieve the vision.
Establishing and maintaining Strategic Alliances
Most businesses are built on a foundation of key strategic relationships. These may include key customers or suppliers, other providers of products or services that can be bundled with yours, industry consultants, or many others. We can help you establish productive relationships, and sustain them over the long haul … including resolving disputes that sometimes arise, so that business can go on…
We believe that the best finance is the money customers are happy to pay you for your products and services! However, inevitably, a good business idea will need priming at start-up, or to push through critical growth stages. We have raised capital for growing technology businesses on many occasions and can help you to do so as well.
Steve was one of the Panelists at the Curtin “Ignition” program Business Plan Pitch Presentation …
The Ignition delegates were nascent and novice entrepreneurs with ideas to take forward into business or early stage business owners from a mix of backgrounds. Some of the delegates were from universities; others from large organisations (people who may well have some business background) and others were solo entrepreneurs.
Delegates made a brief presentation followed by discussion with the Panelists who then provided coaching on the presentation and the viability of their business idea.
