- As Pro-Active Scout, I can search and select the best of the French innovative privately-held companies, in any fields, by carefully analyzing their Business Plan:
Management team, Product & Service Project, Market, Global Strategy and Marketing, Business Model, Competitors, Intellectual property .... .
- As Business Analyst, I can support your Go/NoGo investment decisions
- As Strategyst, I can search and find startups/companies that can enhance the value of your investee companies (M&A Operations)
Investing in privately-held companies, from Startups to SMEs, can seem very risky compared to real estate or exchange, but the yields of fund management firms such as Private Equity / Venture Capital clearly demonstrate the otherwise. I apply the same rigor as those companies to select and present the best businesses seeking capital.
Consulting in Innovation Strategy & Management requires scientific competence and an understanding of the relevant business, market and the specific innovative projects by nature risky.
I have the right background, a strong network and deep knowledge of the innovative start-ups and SMEs based in France, in the field of IT-Computer Science, E-Business, Software, Hardware, Telecom, High-tech, or Chemistry, Biotech-Pharmaceutics, Health & Scientific-Medical Device.
From the idea to market, my mission will be to secure your entrepreneurial innovation.
