Startup assessment
We don't focus on technological expertise - there are a lot of experts with scientific background to manage this part. What we do is complex expertise and assessment of startup projects from the point of view of minimisation of startup risks.

What does it mean?

We analyse all the aspects of current startup stage which influence the business perspective, including:
► market analysis,
► competition analysis,
► business plan,
► financial plan,
► business model,
► marketing strategy analysis,
► competition strategy analysis.
In addition, we use our own methodology of startup founders and team assessment, including assessment of internal competences and communications in the team.

We analyse current startup stage, its market potential, SWOT, competitors and alternative products/services, ability of the founders to manage startup team and project development. This allows to evaluate projects perspectives and make investment analysis, while early assessment of project weak points allows to determine potential risks and fix them in advance to minimize investors' risks.
