Personnel and Skill-set
Our seasoned team has expertise in marketing, operations, finance, business development and sales. We’ve been CEOs, COOs, CMOs, and CFOs. Early stage companies and mature businesses experiencing change often struggle because the management team is forced to wear too many hats and can’t afford to hire high-level executives. We provide the extra bandwidth and help fill these voids in experience and skill-set with an affordable team approach that allows a business to realize its potential and grow its value.
Strategy and Direction
For early stage companies we can help by serving as an extension of the founding team. For mature companies we’re your trusted partner. In either case we help with business planning, financial modeling, business development, resource assessment, training, recruiting and any other area where the company needs to define and set its strategic direction.
Execution and Implementation
A plan is only as good as the effort behind its execution. Not only does this require developing actionable goals and objectives, it also means creating mechanisms to ensure accountability along the way. But we’re not here to just build the plan — whether its day to day project management or making sales calls, we dig in and help get the work done.
Finance and Capital
Continuity of capital is critical to the continued development and growth of a company. We help assess the need for capital for both early stage and mature companies and have relationships with Angels and Institutions that can bring new investment capital to the table. We also manage SAGE Fund I which is a venture fund that invests in early stage companies in a wide range of industries, and in some cases our fund will participate with other investors in companies that we work with.
