Go-to-Market Strategy and Execution
Our team of seasoned growth advisors is passionate about helping start-ups succeed. Using a pragmatic approach, we help these companies develop comprehensive action plans to bring their products and services to market.

Leveraging our experience and key industry partnerships, we’ll work with you to create a business model designed to grow revenue by developing sales processes, managing the launch of new products and services, and monitoring key performance indicators.
Risk is inherent in business, but losses don’t have to be. That’s why strategic risk management is an important part of our growth advisory and offshore management practices. We provide leadership, and cost-effective offshore compliance services to assess the risks your organization faces, identify opportunities, and ensure losses are mitigated. With decades of experience in risk management and continuous improvement, our team has enabled organizations to execute successful transformations and powered fast-paced growth at globally recognized organizations. To reduce compliance costs, we can complement the oversight with quality offshore enterprise risk management, internal controls (including SOX/CSOX implementation), internal audit, and business process reengineering services.

Our technology and business process outsourcing services are designed to build operational flexibility into your strategic growth plan, allowing you to focus on your core business.

Engaged in the process from start to finish, we lead contract and service-level agreement negotiations, and manage implementation. As your trusted outsourcing advisors our work doesn’t end with implementation. We conduct ongoing independent evaluations and assessments of outsourced operations.

What does the process look like from first contact to a successful partnership?
Like every organization, every engagement is unique! Typically, this is what you can expect:
Getting Acquainted: We take some time to get to know each other with a few calls or in-person meetings. During this time, we’ll review your strategic documents (under NDA, of course), job descriptions, objectives, and website. We use this time to ensure we understand your unique objectives and how you can benefit from our growth advisory services.
Proposal: Once we’ve had the opportunity to learn and understand your business and objectives, we will provide a proposal outlining exactly how we can add value to your organization.
Building the Relationship: For all accepted proposals, we envision a short-term engagement to deliver on immediate objectives. During this time, we also focus on building a deeper understanding of your business and a relationship rooted in trust. As we complete our short-term objectives, we engage further with specifics on how we can help you achieve growth and fulfill your vision.
