Start-ups in rapid growth have many common challenges:
The phases of the start-up through pre-IPO exit phases of an emerging company, range from:
Our practice group of world-class CFOs and talent search team provide the experience wide range of resources to provide timely, affordable solutions to address any of your company needs. With deep experience from working in the trenches, our advisors provide affordable, practical support. We work in a wide variety of industries and advise many successful start-up companies.
When a start-up forms, it is still perfecting its products and services, learning about its market, customers and competition and how to make money. Startup founders often lack financial experience and foresight. We help companies that are just starting out to develop solid business plans with financial plans that aid in funding. We provide senior-level guidance needed to accelerate the company to the next stage and can make critical introductions to other professionals and services to help entrepreneurs round out their professional advisory team.
Rapid Growth Companies
P&L, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow planning is critical in helping rapid growth companies plan investment in headcount, working capital, plant and equipment, technology, product development, marketing and sales. We help rapid-growth companies evaluate alternative strategies, personnel needs, market considerations and costs. We support both domestic and international businesses, and advise on funding alternatives. We provide carefully conceived, detailed long term plans that serve as business tools to manage growth and expansion, and measure progress towards those goals.
Companies considering an IPO have unique challenges. There are accounting and reporting factors, corporate governance and regulations related to specific SEC and Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) requirements that must be considered. At this stage, a company requires detailed reviews and potential system upgrades. We help pre-IPO companies to develop and incorporate disclosure controls, processes and procedures needed to ensure that financial statements are accurate and free of misstatements. We help prepare for the upcoming IPO.
E-Commerce and Internet Companies
E-Commerce Companies and industries with online business models provide many of their own additional opportunities and challenges to scaling the business. Internet-based business models also provide less friction in expanding internationally without the fixed capital expenses of their bricks and mortar counterparts. The infrastructure partnerships required are often different from offline businesses. We help these companies with expertise in negotiating technology, marketing and all other operational partnerships. Also, we can provide critical introductions to legal and other advisory professionals.
