FINANCE & EXIT
BUT REALLY, IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU
We are a team of three founders, who met through Tech London Advocates. We represent different skill sets - a sales and marketing generalist, a financier/exit specialist and a technical/product strategist - and different sectors, including financial services, FinTech, telecommunications, PropTech and the Internet of Things.
The UK startup scene is an exciting arena with many innovative companies and disruptive technologies. However, it is an environment replete with risks as well as rewards. We believe that there are a number of areas ripe for disruption within the tech ecosystem itself.
Our research covering over 100 startups reveals several challenges. Why do so many startups fail? They lack access to experienced people, advice and other resources they need to de-risk their operations. For startups, the chance that they will succeed and achieve their true potential can be bolstered with management consulting, coaching, mentoring and fractional executives.
How can investors be more scientific in their appraisal of adding new startups to their portfolios? For investors, the potential rewards of investing can be enhanced and the risks mitigated by better evaluation of startup business models.
How can experienced professionals, who are embarking on portfolio careers, contribute to startups? For senior leaders, the availability of fractional roles in startups, with flexible working, better work-life balance and new forms of compensation could be attractive.
Helping startups will benefit everyone in the ecosystem, and contribute to society as a whole by driving economic growth. Covid19 has caused pain and disruption, especially for small businesses. We believe that it is possible to build back better and create new ways of working.
