feaTURED CASE STUDY

start ups to up starts


OVERVIEW


Assisted several entrepreneurs and start-up companies in such areas as conception and validation of ideas, concept development and testing, market potential, initial product development, business plans and models development, funding procurement, product development and launch, customer acquisition, go-to-market strategies, growth platforms, growth infrastructure development, company structure and ownership, as well as providing management oversight including acting as the CEO.


Challenge


Most start-ups fail. Many great ideas never see the fruits of commercialization. On the surface, the reasons for failure could be numerous, but a careful analysis would almost always point to lack of discipline and focus, unclear purpose and direction, inability to build supporting management structures and leadership to focus and drive collective energy to convert a great idea into successful product and company that creates value for all its stakeholders.
From its inception, valueideas has committed to help convert ideas into value.  While we help apply that philosophy to all businesses, this is particularly true for start ups.

How We Helped


valueideas has assisted several entrepreneurs and start ups at various stages of their development - from an idea to a successful launch to a profitable growing company.  For example, we have used the power of valuelab® to help convert mere ideas into executable business models, growth platforms for series of product launches to capture markets, revenues and enhanced valuations. ​Similarly, we have used executionlabSM to develop resourced and time-lined execution plans that impart discipline, focus, careful resource and funding management; and result orientation to the project team. Additionally, such an effort serves as a major confidence builder for the investor community. We have also provided management oversight including acting as the CEO to help tackle management and business issues while providing leadership to keep the internal development teams sharply focused on delivering product on time and on budget.
