Technology

While the ecosystem for technology companies is second to none in the UK, it needs to be so. Technology remains a fast-moving, highly competitive sector where to-day’s bright idea may be obsolete tomorrow. Turning ideas into reality requires clearly set out plans that show product development and marketing costs, the revenue/business model and the metrics that drive valuations, which often bear no relation to traditional financial measures. Our ability to create these plans and explain them to investors and funders has enabled many companies to raise equity funds and to obtain R&D tax credits and Technology Strategy Board (TSB) grants.

With such a rate of change, risks are high and plans rarely work first time. Our assistance has also enabled businesses to demonstrate why they are behind forecast and restored confidence of the shareholders in management.

“Delighted with the dedication and expertise; speedy and professional.”
