Entrepreneurial Edge

A Unique Resource for Entrepreneurs, Consultants and Business Executives

Who it’s For: Entrepreneurs, startup companies, early, mid and even late stage executives.

Overview: Based on his wide range of experience on Wall Street as a financial adviser and merchant banker, as well as his experience working with private equity and venture capital firms, Mike is equipped to assist in virtually every aspect of getting an early stage company where it needs to be in order to satisfy customers and investors. 

As a part of this package, Mike and his team will contribute up to 20 hours in order to analyze all data, materials and conduct interviews with the entrepreneur and his team as well as others in order to formulate a needs analysis and make preliminary determinations regarding strategic direction, business viability, and to help improve the overall chances of success of the venture. This initial assessment is required before we can even begin to assist the client and is in addition to the 30 additional hours of phone and research support discussed below.

How it Works: Once the initial assessment and recommendations have been made, the client will receive a consultation package consisting of a total of 20 hours of phone support and 10 hours of research for you and your team of executives.

Mike will provide you with assistance in the selection of board members, officers, legal and accounting personnel, help make performance assessments, provide recommendations regarding your business model, business strategy, marketing strategy, and help you understand, select and help you negotiate deal terms, assist in negotiations with vendors, investors (angel and venture capitalists) and more as time permits. We will not directly make any negotiations on your or your company’s behalf, but we will provide recommendations in order to assist you and your colleagues with negotiations. 

Cost: Please inquire with the details about you and your firm and we will provide you with a quote.
