Really? What’s the challenge of running your own startup or scale-up? Jesus. Where do you start?
You’re scaling rapidly.
As the team gets bigger and more global and you cede more and more control, the questions get harder.
How do we reach new customers? How can we shorten our sales cycle?
What would take our product from 'nice to have' to 'must-have'?
How do we hire the best people?
What do people mean when they ask me about my vision?
How can I get our teams to scale and work smarter?
Yep. Hard stuff. Not really the kind of questions that can be ignored for too long.
How do we feel about strategic consultancy?
We found that, at times, our clients needed this from us more than full-on marketing and PR activity.
Maybe it’s our diverse experience; we're also pretty good at isolating the right problem in a swirl of chaos and can often help with a solution that gives management teams the confidence or impetus they need.
We've also got a black book of friends and contacts from every discipline or industry that we've worked in - top brass types from B2B and B2C, startup and enterprise alike. Sometimes it's just about bringing in the right kind of help to validate the questions or share their own perspectives and experiences.
For some clients we charge ourselves out by the day, working on the ground from their offices and serving their team across any project or workflow they want to put in front of us.
Either way, we find it takes a village to raise a startup.
You’re going to need help.
We can be the help you need.
