Power up with investment

Home: Welcome

What We Do

We help public and private organisations interested in innovation,  entrepreneurship and investment, through the design, structuring and raising of venture capital funds and other open innovation models.

For entrepreneurs and start-ups, we support the alignment of business strategy to funding strategy. 

We work with fund managers, start-ups, larger companies, accelerators, incubators, universities, the 3rd economy and economic development organisations.

Our approach is to understand your situation in detail, consider your goals, as well as those of your stakeholders, and deliver primary research as required before layering our expertise and experience.  We deliver market understanding, strategic development and plans of action and we can support implementation. 

We also provide unique training in decision making in situations dominated by uncertainty, extremely common in the world of innovation and entrepreneurship.
