Formative Planning, Blueprint
Ideation through formative planning, including a product, platform or business model blueprint, is a daunting endeavor for not only first-time entrepreneurs, but for anyone starting a business. Even seasoned founders and entrepreneurs know that a repeat of your last success is not guaranteed.
We specialize in understanding vision and working through our formulaic process to integrate your start-up intent and objectives, and working with you to craft a structured plan in the formation of your start-up, and technologically, mapping a core blueprint of your product vision.
Every start-up or early-stage business is different, no matter the vertical, market, or industry. Even same-market businesses have different strategies and modeling. However, common to each will be an intrinsic dependency on technology to operate, succeed or scale.
We specialize in helping resolve the technology architecture as either a business solution or product across both operations and delivery. Having worked with dozens of businesses from Fortune 500 to pre-launch start-ups, we can help most anyone resolve how to go from POC, Beta or an existing application, to a native cloud solution at scale.
StackIQ founders each have over 25 years of technology, business, and people experience, with over half of that in start-up and early-stage businesses, and host a sizable network of business, finance, legal, technology, and market resources. We tap into those as needed to support each client project and will always make additional resources available as needed.
Go-to-Market, Launch Strategy
Getting a product or service to market tends to be one of the greatest challenges for start-ups. From financial modeling, raising capital, and product delivery, to marketing, market-fit, channel management, and customer acquisition. Our experience is broad in having done this ourselves with numerous products and services, and we do our best to help solve the strategic planning and tactical steps you will need to take to make your go-to-market and launch a success.
Growing a start-up once launched can be a daunting task as most founders and leadership teams lack the experience and know-how. Efficient growth and effective scaling mean planning the right steps necessary to accomplish proper scaling and doing so at a network effect of low cost-efficiencies. We work with founders and their leadership teams to evaluate, identify and accurately program the steps necessary to achieve this.
Funding your start-up is not entirely about pitch decks, getting in front of VCs, or being the hottest start-up story. It is about understanding what investors need to see from your business financially, and presenting a securities offering that is compliant, proper, and protects your equity in the fullest sense of the word. Getting you and your leadership trained and educated on the legal and compliant processes of correctly raising capital or debt financing to solve bringing your business to the next level, is a must-do for every business seeking funding in private capital markets. Founders should never give up substantial equity for capital, which is why we recommend every Founder undergo the EPEC Program™ we have co-developed at Commonwealth Capital, to help you effectively solve your capital funding without losing your shirts as founders, and set you on a clear and solid path to a successful IPO.
