CFO SUPPORT

We work closely with your finance team, or externally to build your full-finance function from scratch.

R&D & Grants

Cash is King and this is very much the case when it comes to startups. We help companies locate which grants they are eligible for and work to help apply for R&D and other incentives.

CAPITAL RAISING SUPPORT

The capital markets have undergone a big shift recently, but what hasn’t changed is the fundamentals required to attract outside investment. We can help startups prepare for their capital raise to ensure it is a success.

GO-TO-MARKET SOLUTIONS

We help design a Go-To-Market strategy which delivers results. This allows startups to build better relationships with customers and increase sales.
