You’ve promised growth to investors…

You’re a high growth technology business, but you’re held back by slow sales due to:

A lack of clarity about your position and messaging

Circular internal debates

Poor pitching

Erratic marketing execution

50% of the KPIs investors look for are customer and marketing related. This fundraising ‘Ladder of Proof’ shows the important metrics investors evaluate businesses against. The customer based metrics are in red. We focus on those.

When you understand how to organise your marketing and sales around these metrics, selling and fundraising become far, far easier.

Common challenges we solve

You need to create an Unfair Advantage that breaks through buyer inertia. You can engineer this from your buyer insights, your positioning, your targeting and your marketing execution. Create a sustainable advantage quickly with our Unfair Advantage Sprint.

We can help you hit your targets. You need the Positioning, People, Processes and Platforms to optimise your sales funnels. It’s an engineering task built on validated insights and a distinctive brand and product point of view. 

Many businesses burn through marketing budgets with micro optimisations of content, messaging and channel. The big efficiencies come from validating value propositions and then testing the whole sales funnel. Our holistic process looks at every part of your sales funnel to ensure you are set up to hit your growth milestones. 

Effective marketing is based on validated insights that help create an Unfair Advantage. We use a Credibility Analysis method to review your insights and we run Lean ‘Customer Development’ qualitative research to uncover your customer’s Jobs to be Done, Pains and Gains. 

We sit on investment committees and we know what investors need to see. We create pitch decks and can organise your growth strategy to hit the milestones you’ll need to hit.

We work with VCs to take Series A or B companies to market with structured, data-driven growth plans. We deliver Positioning, Value Proposition validation and Go To Market plans. We then find and manage their marketing partners and can act as an interim CMO.

When you work with suppliers it’s easy for inefficiencies to creep in. We offer a complete sourcing, briefing and managing service for businesses with a sizeable marketing budget. We increase marketing ROI and decrease wasted time and budget.
