We believe in backing new entrepreneurs!

Expert guidance to discover and pursue new opportunities.

”I’m thinking of branching out with my new idea, but I’m not sure….”

“I haven’t got an idea yet, but I know I want to become an entrepreneur…”

For career executives who have hit a glass ceiling or are feeling ready for a change, trying out a new commercial opportunity can be daunting. We can help answer many questions such as:
– How do you find the right idea and get started? How do you acquire tech?
– How do you build the right relationships and attract investment?
– How do you de-risk the project?
– …and much more

We can translate your ideas into investor-speak, so that you are ready when investors ask you:
– What’s the value proposition?
– What’s the market opportunity?
– Where’s your proof of concept?
– What is your price point?
– What’s your exit plan?

Work with us to pursue new opportunities

Personalised, flexible and fluid, one-on-one mentoring and coaching with commercialisation expert Ian Brown will ensure you are working with a trusted advisor to bridge the gap from here to there, and get you to the stage where your potential investors have a clear vision of the opportunity.

We believe in re-engineering existing product lines and re-energising businesses!

The world we live in today requires you to think differently in business.

Don’t be disrupted by an entrepreneur with a new gadget or a new business model that you haven’t thought about!

You already have an established brand. Now there’s potential to become the entrepreneurial leader in your products, categories or markets… OR in new products, categories or markets.

Be part of the disruption…

You can be a ‘startup’ anytime you want within your business! It’s about thinking differently. We will show you how to do this with new models you can implement to ensure that you not only survive, but thrive.

Work with us to re-engineer your existing product lines or
re-energise your business

Commercialisation expert Ian Brown’s methodology involves obtaining a deeper knowledge of what your customer wants, not what you think they want – to create a more innovative product pipeline… this is how start-ups think! Think differently from every other business and think differently from your competitors.
