Our venture capital clients

We work with a variety of venture capital clients globally who benefit from our expertise in asset transformation, investor business optimisation and business planning (buy-side) due diligence services.

Underperforming asset?

We can identify the core issues driving the underperformance of a venture capital sponsored startup and work with the executive team and board to successfully develop and execute a turnaround strategy.

Second opinion?

Not sure if the pitch is viable? Let us run our ruler across the deal to identify the risks and oversights to give you peace of mind. We can determine if the financial modelling and assumptions are reasonable, or if the board or executive capabilities are suitable to execute the company's strategy.

Enhancing value?

Has the asset bedded down its concept and ready to build to scale? Looking to enhance maximum value in preparation for exit? With our business optimisation service we can identify areas to optimise the performance of the business to ensure you extract maximum value from you investment.
