SECTOR:
Venture Capital & Technology

BACKGROUND:

A VC investor required an independent rebuild & validation of an investee technology company’s business model prior to 2nd round funding and the sourcing of further strategic investment.

CHALLENGE:
The investor & investee company CEO needed to validate the assumptions and completeness & accuracy of the company’s forecasts in the context of its commercial environment. They also wanted to identify the specific actions, owners & timelines to deliver the company’s strategy and the risks to its future growth.
SOLUTION:
Mike conducted a comprehensive review of all aspects of the business that impacted the company’s P&L, cashflow & valuation. The review identified erroneous & out of date business assumptions and structural & mechanical errors within the model. The rebuilt business model addressed these issues, proposed ways to optimise pricing, cost management & working capital management and identified the key initiatives to deliver the company’s strategy.

BENEFIT:
The investor & investee company CEO were delighted with the quality of Mike’s analysis, the proposals made & the structuring of the company’s strategic roadmap and initiated 2nd round funding.
