Startup Consulting Services

Startups face a unique set of challenges, especially if you plan to start a business outside of the culture or country where you grew up. I understand this because I’ve done it twice in the past 10 years. I want to equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to help you launch your business, allowing so you to achieve freedom of lifestyle and create positive social impact.

Country Research

Not sure which country is the ideal location to launch your business? Or maybe you have a region in mind but are still up in the air on which country will best meet your needs? I will leverage my experience, the loads of data I have collected, my extensive network of expats, and my mad research skills to create a list of the best possible options for you and your family.

Business Models

Business Model Canvas

One of the best tools for creating a successful startup is the Business Model Canvas. It puts all aspects of your business on one page in a way that allows you to quickly and easily make necessary adjustments. I have used the Canvas with dozens of businesses and even with my own business models. I will walk you through the process of completing the Canvas asking questions and helping you think through how to best complete each section of the Canvas.

Business Plans

While I recommend all startups start off using the Business Model Canvas, I realize there are going to be times when you just need a business plan. Whether you need a bank loan or you are ready to pursue investors, I can provide you with a template to get you going and review your plan to make sure you have all of the information you need.

I also know that finding the time to write a business plan can be a pain for many of you. I want to help alleviate this pain. I will help you write your plan or we can take one you are ready to throw out the window and turn it into a masterpiece.

Strategic Planning

For your startup or small business to experience long-term success, you must have direction to guide your decisions and behaviors. During these sessions, I help you or your leadership team develop:

  • Purpose/Mission Statement
  • Vision Statement
  • Values
  • Strategy Statement

Coaching & Advising

Sometimes you need someone who has been there and done that to help you talk through the challenges you are facing. Or you may need someone to be on board to help advise you or your leadership team on the best way to move forward.

My collaborative process ensures you implement practical solutions that will enable you and your business to grow. I help increase your ROI by keeping you and your team accountable to implement the skills you learn during our time together. I will also help you identify and track growth goals within your company.

Speaking

While I work one-on-one with most clients, I also love sharing my experience and best practices with various groups. With years of experience as a trainer and facilitator working with startups to multinational organizations, I love to present interactive sessions on entrepreneurship, innovation & experimentation, and leadership, team, & strategy development.
