All companies, regardless of the products or services they provide, need a certain degree of organization, structure, internal and financial reporting controls, policies and procedures, knowledgeable and skilled management, financing and luck, if they are to grow significantly, profitably and successfully. Few start-up and development stage companies begin with all of these attributes, but the more successful ones acquire them as they progress through their early business life cycles. As investors perform due diligence on prospective investee companies, lack of reasonable structure and controls can result in the investors investing in other companies or charging more for their investment due to perceived risk or lack of accurate and reliable financial statements and internal financial information. Our significant careers and our experience gained over those years, provide us with the basis to assist start-up and development stage companies in setting up good corporate structure, internal and financial reporting controls, corporate governance, boardroom structure and other structural elements used by successful companies. We are also skilled at mentorship of executives and Boards during their company's early and difficult years and we enjoy contributing to our clients' succcess.
