Team 

After leading multiple B2B tech startups, our team has seen many of the same challenges before.  

Many successful rapid-growth companies need help to get to the next level, or pivot to new markets and categories. 

Stalled companies need help to overcome market, sales, finance and management challenges.

We have a unique offering to engage with startups, growth and expansion companies to overcome these challenges. 

We're experts in taking B2B companies to the next level.

We're also passionate about working alongside teams that create innnovative products. 

 

We are experienced executives — we have all worked in pre-revenue, rapid-growth venture-funded and large technology companies, and we each have a proven track record in launching, growing, fixing, pivoting, funding and driving to exits at B2B tech startups.
