"Duet provided a clear and insightful analysis of where our business was, and what we needed to do to deliver value, and grow. Those priorities are on my desk and the focus of my activities every week. We much appreciated their work and hope to engage them further in the next round of fundraising."
Chris Smith, Managing Director, G-Volution Ltd
We provide advice on all aspects of capital raising and business building through Seed, Venture and Growth stages.
Fundraising is one aspect of the journey but there are many other challenges to be tackled along the way. The foundation stone is the business model, its creation, validation and execution, as the company transitions through the stages. For early stage businesses the approach to business model development is profoundly different to that of an established company. For founders coming out of the corporate world there are many traps to avoid.
Alongside this is the financial model, the ultimate tool for understanding the economic value being created as well as evaluating alternative business model scenarios, especially at the pivot points. Also a critical item in any investor due diligence process.
We have extensive hands on experience helping companies develop and implement these key tools and capabilities, to meet both operational and fundraising requirements. Many have embraced these so strongly that years after our engagement ended they are still delivering value.
