Startup Advice

Lean Startup: Using the Lean Startup Method allows startups to go-to-market faster by rapid testing of their ideas and permitting quick product adjustments based on real life market feedback.  Go-To-Market strategies include international expansion (US-UK-Ireland). This increases speed while reducing risk and cost.

Business Plans: Business Plans are key to business success. They provide the focus and direction of the business. Key services include: customized business plan creation, review and update existing business plans, and go to market assessment including competitive analysis.

Financial Forecasts:  Financial forecasts are crucial since one of the main reasons businesses fail is due to running out of money. Financial forecasts summarize your business plan into key financial results. Reports include: profit & loss projections, balance sheet creation and cash flow projections.

Pitch Deck Preparation

Pitch decks create an engaging visual representation of your business plan and financial forecasts.  You only have one chance to make a good first impression – preparation and practice are essential.  Pitch decks are typically useful when presenting to these groups:  potential strategic partners, potential investors (family & friends, angel and venture capitalists) and pitch contests – with financial rewards.  I also offer presentation skills training.

Workshops & Webinars

I offer a “startup in a box” workshop, which provides a step-by-step approach to starting and launching a business.  This includes developing a rock-solid business plan that works along with a cash flow projection.  

For startups seeking funding, there is a Pitch Deck workshop that includes presentation skills coaching.

The webinars are under development….be sure to reserve your spot now!

Speaking Engagements

I am available to speak about starting and scaling a business. I’ll discuss the Lean Startup Method as a key to going-to-market faster and with less risk and cost than traditional approaches.  The importance of a rock-solid business plan will also be discussed, as failure to have this will most likely prevent a business from being funded. I can also discuss how to create a Pitch Deck for Angel or Venture Capital presentations.

Kevin was extremely helpful advising us on marketing and client development. He also coached us on how to pitch our business and with his help, we won 1st place in the Weill Cornell Business Plan Challenge which provided us startup funding. He is the best mentor we worked with; he goes directly to the point and provide advice without any reservations. We will not hesitate to recommend his services.
