Startup CEO

The typical science and technology based business is launched by one or more scientists or technical professionals with little or no business training or experience. They may have a very promising technology, but lack the knowledge of the steps and activities involved in developing it into a business. Turning a technology into a business requires a different skill set and an entrepreneurial orientation that scientists and engineers often lack. As a result many good technologies never make it in to the marketplace.

Our startup CEO service is intended to fill in the gaps and provide the missing pieces that the technical founders of a company are unable to provide. It is intended to deliver the business development services and support required to help the company reach the point where it successfully raises sufficient financing to begin hiring its own dedicated management team. This service would be priced at an hourly rate, a portion of which could be deferred in return for equity.
