We Take an Entrepreneurial approach to consulting
Good ideas are not necessarily good opportunities. Good opportunities are not necessarily valid opportunities.
We help you to better understand which is which, and what valid opportunities are worth pursuing.
Do you have a Marketing Plan, Operations Plan and Financial Plan that are based on SMART goals?
A quality business plan is resilient, promotes innovation, fosters employee engagement, and takes advantage of valid opportunities.
Have you developed a Value Proposition that is sound, cogent, and unbiased? Have you Validated your value proposition?
A high quality, actionable, and opportunity-based strategy can be difficult to craft, and even more difficult to match with internal capabilities.
Facilitating value is the job of your employees, machinery, and other daily operations. Maximizing value is why you hire great managers.
Creating value is what entrepreneurs and consultants are brought onboard to do.
Create new value, and gain a competitive advantage.
Are you a Subject Matter Expert in you industry? Are you aware of the trends and factors affecting change in your industry and market?
We offer coaching and training services, that can include Industry Analyses, and Market Analyses. Let us help make you the expert you need to be.

Fostering the Growth of Tomorrow’s Leaders
We are Working with Incubators To Help Start-Ups Grow!
We have created a program dedicated to, and designed for the unique needs of business incubators and their eclectic roster of members. The program is called C.A.M. and consists of three basic sets of services: Coaching, Advising, and Mentorship.
In addition to C.A.M., we are arranging for regular Discussion Panels with today’s leaders, influencers, and mentors, in which we discuss the topics and matters that are important to start-ups, entrepreneurs, and economic development. We will actively attract Coached, Advisors, and Mentors from professional organizations such as CMC, CPA, CMA, PMI, ACG, etc., such that Incubators and their Members have access to the best of the best as needed. We will also be launching Classes, Workshops, and Group Coaching to round out the program.
If you are an Incubator in North America, or a member of an Incubator in North America, we encourage you to reach out and take advantage of our unique program, and help both Incubators and their Members to gain a competitive advantage, create new value, and reach new levels of success.
