StartUps Icon

Start-ups & Commercialisation

Start-ups, unlike other types of companies, are often formed around an unestablished, "open-to-debate" proposition or concept.

What ultimately distinguishes them from other businesses, is that once they succeed, they introduce innovative products and services previously unthought of, thus creating new world perspectives. The visionary and magical concepts of startups, however, often do not resonate with actual market needs, hence their low success rate. From ideation to impact, companies need to get doses of reality checks to make their concept work and grow.

  • Action plan, time plan and growth acceleration roadmap
  • HR assessment

Innovation Funding

To fuel its innovative activities, a company can attain funding through several channels. More often than not, a combination of funding and financing mechanisms are preferred.

The type of funding / financing needed, is a function of the business type, its current status, and the direction towards it is headed to grow.

  • Identification of funding needs
