All companies go through several transformations in their development. During this period, entrepreneurs face decisions that may accelerate the growth of the company or slow down success, or perhaps even doom their chances. Volatus can help you through those critical inflection points. We have already helped companies in industries as varied as Information Technology, Life Science, and Advance Manufacturing.
A young technology company with a great product had completed a successful pilot project with a prestigious anchor customer and was ready to scale operations to accelerate its growth. The Board of Directors felt the founder needed help with this strategic task and engaged Volatus to help. Volatus assigned an experienced executive to work with the founder to develop a business plan, establish a market penetration strategy, implement a product support strategy, determine the team and infrastructure needed for growth, and help prepare the company for a successful investment round. The company was so satisfied with Volatus perform after the investment round was completed that it engaged Volatus to continue advising the company through the execution stage, mentoring the founder, and helping implement the strategic plan.
A rapidly growing company was impressively penetrating its target market. Success was keeping the executive team from evaluating market expansion opportunities requested by the Board of Directors. Although the CEO knew that market diversification was important, he did not want to rush into new markets without the proper guidance. The CEO engaged Volatus to perform this evaluation. Volatus worked with the Executive Team in selecting the best market to evaluate. Volatus presented a thorough report that recommended entry into the market cautiously through partnering. Additionally, the evaluation Volatus performed identified potential market penetration strategies for the core business.
Interim Executive Management
A young VC-backed company with a promising future was underachieving. While the business model seemed sound and the market opportunity was ripe, the Executive team missed milestone after milestone. To make matters worse, the information flowing from the company was insufficient and incomplete. Volatus executives were hired to get things back on track. Working with the executive team, an operating plan was created, which included a process to measure, monitor, and report progress, and the organization was restructured to deliver on that plan. The company got on track, and the young executive team got the mentoring necessary to operate successfully on their own.
