Start-ups or Early Stage Businesses
Launching a business requires significant preparation. You only get one opportunity in front of investors or lenders. It is critical that you clearly articulate, among other things, the market opportunity, your business model, the competitive landscape, potential risks and mitigants, capital needs, and financial projections.
Turnaround and Distressed Situations
Even the best companies can face significant challenges at various points in their lifecycle. These challenges arise from a variety of sources including loss of a large customer, regulatory changes, key employee turnover, or something entirely different. The effects of these challenges can be widespread ranging from creditor issues to employee turnover. Getting help from someone who has been down this path before will help you navigate these issues and provide you with peace of mind that you will be able to persevere through these challenging times.
An objective look at all aspects of your business has many benefits. It can help identify blind spots, ineffective business processes, and opportunities to improve profitability by recognizing unprofitable customers or even product lines. In addition, while value can be created through mergers and acquisitions; however, a poorly executed transaction can have a devastating effect on the value of your business. Similarly, the sale of your business without significant advance planning can result in leaving a substantial amount of value on the table.
