We create strategies for your education technology, products or services company to secure funding, grow quickly, dominate your market and prepare to sell to a strategic acquirer.
We help prepare clients to attract and close funding. We have helped clients secure over $55 million from top VC firms and strategic investors to drive growth in education on a global scale.
We use our rich contact database and sales team to identify and close large district sales and business development opportunities. We can land 5, 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.
Sell / Exit
If you want to sell your business, our experts work with you and your management team to position and ready your company for sale.
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 value. 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. If your sales are flat or you experience a market downturn, we can 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.
