We are typically brought into early stage companies by the founder/CEO, venture capital investors (or potential investors), board members, or industry groups. We have strong relationships with a number of large prominent Silicon Valley legal, accounting and banking firms. We can assist in a range of ways including:
Sharpen business model and focus
Identify market and business opportunities and validate their potential
Take on interim management roles as necessary
Help recruit and build management team
Advise and mentor management team
Provide hands-on help with sales, marketing and customer issues
Incubate early stage technologies and opportunities
We work with a wide range of organizations:
Venture Backed Startups
Threshold Ventures helps startups sharpen their business strategy and focus, make key hires, advise and mentor Founder CEO’s. We also assist the fundraising process, provide hands on interim management, evaluate/assess new market opportunities, and establish strategic partnerships.
We help large companies create spinouts from corporate technologies, as well as advise and mentor internal startup efforts. We provide direct management assistance for internal startups - from general management, marketing and channel development, and strategic partnerships to fundraising and structuring of licenses arrangements.
Economic Development Entities
Threshold Ventures provides seminars and mentoring to startups within the U.S. and internationally. We have assisted international startups looking to grow their business in the U.S. We have also evaluated and advised international companies that want to create U.S. based companies and exploit core technology in new markets. We provide hands-on assistance with strategy and execution. This help includes assisting companies with market research and analysis, sales, marketing, channel development, staffing, strategic partnering and business development.
While every company is unique, we can help develop or revise a company’s business plan and presentation, address strategic business issues, refine market and sales channels, help with key hires and provide ongoing advice to the company.
