As a start – up or an early-stage organisation, we know how hard it is juggling many competing priorities and building a financially stable platform for the business. We use our wealth of experience to provide support to Founders, Owners & CEOs as your trusted advisor.
We’ve travelled the same road & understand how difficult it can be to navigate financial constraints, tight cash flows or limited funds, create a simple sustainable governance structure, increase customers, pay suppliers, appoint staff AND plan for growth!
We believe that investing some time & resource into setting up the business with appropriate best practice & with ESG principles will ultimately save you time & money in the long term. Agreeing a realistic strategic direction from the start should underpin the way the new organisation operates. This will create a unique & identifiably branded business that will attract investors, finance partners, banks & other funders alike, along with like-minded customers and suppliers.
