My business is helping entrepreneurs achieve their corporate and personal goals.
I am a founding partner at the Apheleon Group, where we provide corporate advisory services to assist in enterprise growth. What do we do?
Apheleon professional have participated as advisers or principals in raising more than $150 million of growth capital for small companies. Apheleon’s Financing Preparation Programs help you to: (a) develop an effective elevator pitch, (b) craft an effective executive summary (c) create a dynamic presentation for prospective investors and (d) deliver an effective pitch. We can also incorporate elements of our Business Plan Development Program (including financial modeling) and Go-To-Market Planning Program if requested. If desired, we will accompany clients to financing meetings and, in some cases, introduce clients to prospective financing sources.
The Business Plan Development process begins with market intelligence, so that plans are grounded in fact – not personal anecdote or assumption. The process then includes workshops with staff and management to identify opportunities and allocate resources. It also includes financial modeling to project pro-forma statements and understand cash flows, as well as financing needs. The result of Apheleon’s Business Plan Development process is a document that offers a comprehensive outlook for the company. This plan is commonly used to guide management action, attract investors, and measure performance.
Apheleon’s Go-To-Market Planning strategies are founded upon rigorous market knowledge in order to ensure that investments are aligned with opportunities. Go-To-Market Planning is designed to enable you to achieve specific objectives in clearly defined timeframes.
Goal management also lets you establish a true pay-for-performance culture by effectively communicating company goals to individual employees. This clarity provides the groundwork for linking reward systems with individual and team performance.
Apheleon’s Goal Setting Workshops are focused on developing specific and actionable goals for your business. Workshops address key components of any goal and lead participants through the process of goal setting, resulting in a set of critical corporate (and personal) goals. Apheleon’s Goal Setting Workshops also address corporate mission statements and issues of corporate (and personal) values.
