We help your education technology, product or service company prepare to secure funding, better serve your customers, grow quickly, dominate your market and if desired, sell for the best package.
We help prepare clients to attract and close funding. We have helped clients secure over $55 million from top VC equity firms and strategic investors to drive growth in education on a global scale.
We connect clients with a wide and deep "Rolodex" of revenue-driving strategic partnerships - landing 6 and 7 figure multi-year sales deals. We can help you grow with new products, acquisitions, licensing deals, partnerships, large district sales, RFP’s, funded development, social media, guerilla marketing, PR and our 40,000+ educators TechinEDU group.
To dominate your market, you need a sustainable competitive advantage. Better yet, you want an “unfair” and defensible one. You also want your brand to define and lead your product category. We know the secrets to market dominance, aggressive sales growth, and maximum value to customers & sale price.
Sell / Exit
If you want to sell your business, our experts work with you and your management team to position and ready your company to sell for maximum value.
We will work with your team to develop an investment thesis, strategic recommendations, and key performance indicators for acquiring another business. We’ll identify the strengths, weaknesses, alignment and leverage opportunities in companies being considered for acquisition and investment. We can do due diligence around technology, business fundamentals, education effectiveness and market growth potential.
We can help “productize services” and boost company valuation. We’ll identify ways to build, buy or sell new things to existing customers, open up new markets and turn “know-how” into sellable assets/IP. We have developed a suite of Proprietary Tools and Market Opportunities to recover lost revenues due to a market downturn and open up new markets with new revenue streams.
“No margin, no mission.” We know you can’t achieve your education goals and mission if you don’t have a great team, solid operations, top developers and responsive support to solve problems and deliver customer success. Most clients come to us with their team, product and initial sales in place. But if you need to find good sales, development or other people, we can help.
We’ll work with you to establish a Win+Win+Win+… scenario that aligns the interests of management, staff and partners to serve your customers. Need to bring on board seasoned and productive sales people? We work with a partner to find the ideal candidates for your market, product, price-point and other factors.
"Topping the list of qualities that make John Stuppy from EDUMETRIX the consummate fund-raising and business selling resource to education entrepreneurs are his deep domain experience, expansive network of professional contacts, and profound understanding of the value drivers in for-profit education. As a veteran of the capital raising and sell/acquisition processes, the first thing John provided my team was the strategy - and confidence - to proceed down an unfamiliar path swiftly and deliberately. After talking to the right people, asking the right questions, and synthesizing the right data, John helped us turn a rough elevator pitch into a cohesive narrative that tied the strengths of our business into a coherent value proposition to investors."
"I reached out to John for advice on how to prepare my company to get funding and maximize our value. We hired John and the EDUMETRIX team as consultants and advisors and within 18 months we successfully sold our company to a highly respected strategic industry leader. John gave us great insight as to how to fine tune and communicate our messaging to maximize our value. I would work with John again and recommend him and EDUMETRIX to any company in need of funding, exit, growth or consulting."
"I retained John and the Edumetrix team to consult my company on our capital raise. From day one, John was deeply involved every step of the way. His access to industry movers and shakers is unparalleled and he can quickly get people to a decision point. Over and above his professionalism and deep, rich industry relationships, John genuinely cares about his client's success. I never felt like "just another client." I always felt John cared about the company as much as we did."
"John Stuppy and EDUMETRIX saved Lone Star College $30,000 from just one executive briefing. EDUMETRIX’s national reach, knowledge, and expertise allow clients to immediately reap benefits that would take years to acquire on our own."
