We are the catalyst for portfolio growth

Post-deal

Where is the hidden profit in the portfolio’s product structure and pricing?

What will you do to narrow down the options for profitable growth, and deliver the plan to win?

How will you flip a company or asset’s business model to deliver recurring growth?

Pre-deal

How do you answer the burning question “do I keep or do I kill?”

SOME OF OUR INVESTOR CLIENTS

360° commercial diagnostic

The challenge:

A multitude of actions could deliver growth but an unlimited pool leads to hedging options. This can stagnate growth, lead to spasmodic execution with no operational efficiency, or it can mean sticking to the ‘status quo’.

How we crack this:

Identify the laser focus to deliver 10x growth and build the plan of execution to make it happen.

ROI

1775% ROI in three months due to new deals signed with our plan, in a new segment we identified. Previous revenue and conversion here was zero.

Pricing strategy

The challenge:

Pricing is the ultimate weapon to increase revenue and profit. Traditional metrics miss nuances which move you from 2x to 10x impact. This will maximise revenue today and guarantee maximum growth for every new product, R&D investment and feature until exit.

How we crack this:

Build pricing based on value to increase conversion, revenue, profit and up-sell ability, then ensure it is executed to generate return.

– David Dawson, Investment Director at Pollen Street Capital

Technology is scalable and can deliver significant investor returns. But the commercialisation of technology makes the difference in-market.
