|Turn "OK" investments into superstars |
An increasingly large part of VC portfolios turn out failed or "OK" investments. We have adapted our business acceleration methodology to strengthen VC-funded companies to increase ROI. Our tools and frameworks allow companies to enter into a second stage growth cycle ultimately enabling accelerated and sustained growth.
Guide companies through adolescence and unleash the true value of your portfolio
Access to traditional sources of management consulting is out of reach for most small and medium sized businesses (SMEs). Yet, the impact and value such services can bring during the adolescent phase of the company lifecycle are immense. This is the phase during which true value is captured hence where valuation increases the most.
At IMPULSA we specialize in delivering first-class management consulting to high-growth potential SMEs at very affordable rates.
Business Acceleration Program
We provide a 6-stage business acceleration program systemically built upon proven best practices in management consulting. The program typically lasts 5 months, and since 2004 over 400 companies have successfully gone through the program with an average revenue increase of 30% during the first year post-acceleration.
| || || ||The Business Acceleration "Sweet spot" |
We have found that, just as a company gets solid traction in the market and starts to receive steady streams of revenue it gets sucked into the daily operations of running a business. At this critical time most incubator program ends and the company is on its own. We refer to this timeframe in the company lifecycle as the business acceleration sweetspot, where business risk and mentoring needs slowly begin to decrease and and the potential for true value creation begins to materialize.
Here, the firm must make critical strategic decisions and identify its true competitive advantage, build solid institutional capabilities and organizational processes, develop and attract the right talent, and finally ensure access to sound financing for future growth.
