Clients

Established and growing companies

For our established clients, we work as an internal advisor directly to the business owner or the top management, usually based on project or hourly fee. For trade representation on foreign markets, we usually bill monthly fees and success fees from closed deals.

Our clients include established and fast growing companies that seek new ways of growth. In close cooperation with our clients, we prepare a complex company strategy and tactics, we evaluate specific business or acquisition opportunities; or alternatively, we design new principles of corporate governance and financial management so as to correspond to the company’s outlook. For technological and industrial clients we provide market studies, business development and sales representation on developing markets of Middle East, Central Asia and Africa.

Companies in early stage of development

For our early-stage clients, we play a role of a project partner on the basis of a commitment fee and/or success fee, generally in the form of capital share in the project or option scheme.

Our clients include companies or project teams that have already unfolded their ideas into a business project in early phase of development and intend to accelerate its growth. Together, we define a strategy, plan the next steps, verify the business model and develop a business plan taking into account its real impact on the oncoming activities. Moreover, we provide financing of the growth strategy and design the financial management principles for the period of growth.
