PRE-FOUNDING: BUSINESS IDEA DEVELOPMENT
We like to work on highly innovative projects that can change the status quo. That's why we support the creation of new business initiatives, even from the pre-founding phase. If you have an idea that you think could have a major impact (economic and/or social), we will be glad to listen to you and evaluate its potential together. The information exchanged will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. We have extreme respect for the intellectual property of each project.
We're not a consulting firm:
we work in partnership
We follow a structured and disciplined methodology
We work without geographic boundaries
Running a startup is an extremely complex task. We consider in detail every aspect of your business. For example, the user experience, the size of your target market, the product/service concept, the technologies used, the technical and economic feasibility of the project, the business model, the economic and financial profile of the company, the characteristics of the founding team and the business development strategies.
Our methodological approach is formalised in the framework T·R·E·E·16©.
The model consider a number of variables within 16 different sections and is organized in 4 main areas:
Target, Reach, Estimate and Execute.
Thanks to its accuracy, the T·R·E·E·16© can be used across all our activities: to turn business ideas into new ventures, to support startups growth, to guide SMEs in their innovation processes and to assess startups for investments.
INNOVATION FOR SMEs
Sometimes SMEs want to enter new markets with new products or services. In these cases, the logic they have to follow is similar to that of a startup. However, these companies are not always prepared to apply such a strategic and organisational approach. In these cases, we start with an assessment of the business opportunity, based on the analysis of different technological and market scenarios.

In order to get insights on the evolution of the entrepreneurial ecosystems, we use the best data sources and business intelligence tools. In this way we are able to support founders with a more scientific and disciplined approach to business development. We use large amounts of data to identify technological and market trends and to analyse different funding strategies of institutional investors (VCs, CVCs, etc).
Especially in the early stage of the business life cycle, the survival of a new startup is closely related to the timing and amount of external investments raised. In the area of fundraising, we carry out bilateral scouting operations, i.e. aimed at both startups looking for funding and investors seeking for startups. Starting from a deep knowledge of the evaluation criteria used by equity investors (angeles and VCs) in the evaluation phase, we help founders to enhance the strengths and solve the problems of their business project.
