We can also act as your local agent or even interim stocking distributor as you set up your local U.K. operations.
Your interim business development team
Even with the best idea in the world, sometimes you need help in getting your first design wins and sales. Whether this is fintech, consumer products or OEM components, we have been classically trained in sales and our combined sales quota has been over $300M in the last 30 years.
We can also get your existing sales team up to speed. This is delivered by training and on-going mentoring of individuals and teams.
We have experience included building one of the largest partner networks in the UK and also the building and management of channels in Europe, Taiwan, Japan and the US.
Our clients all receive senior level direction, support and growth without expensive recruitment fees, and without the costs of lost opportunities and risks of a bad senior hire.
For start-ups, early stage and growth stage technology companies we carry out an audit of the technology value proposition and use cases, together with sales and marketing processes. We have implemented marketing and sales systems for customers, in addition we are able to generate creative content for marketing campaigns as we know each vertical industry intimately.
Funding, Interim CEO and CTO
We can provide an interim CEO, CTO and Senior Business Development service where we quickly build a strategic direction, with the tactics and supporting materials to execute on that direction. Materials would include forecasting templates, a sales bible, channel partner packs and standardised demo sets.
We mentor senior management and sales people and provide an on-going service to support the growth of the business through regular meetings and normal communications channels.
We also have lots of experience in M&A and fund raising having grown and successfully sold companies in the past.
In addition our team has full stack software, electronics, mechanical and creative skills so can assist in building out the technology stack. We have an eclectic mix of experience in product development, from over 10 years experience in clean-tech, power supplies and silicon design through to taking Japanese and Chinese manufactured products and getting them certified to electromagnetic conformity for distribution in the U.K.
