Recently we advised MoSys, Inc. on their public financing. We were pleased to work with, and for, a very high quality client that likely could have accomplished the entire task themselves. However, similar to many of our clients, MoSys perceived a benefit from hiring us for “surge capacity”. Essentially, we helped the Company complete blocking and tackling related to a specific project so they could focus on their day jobs. Kudos to the teams at Roth, Benchmark and Feltl who acted as the underwriters, selling the story to investors and enabling our client to achieve a great outcome… Please contact us with any comments/questions….

Finally getting round to my second blog post. Admittedly much later than I intended. Turns out I have been meaning to get to it for a while, but just have not found the time. Much like I have not found the time to manage other modestly important items in my life (filing receipts and filling out expense reimbursement forms, updating my address on various accounts now that I have moved, etc..) As I was lamenting my lack of time to get all my desired tasks done, I came upon the topic of my second blog post; Why should a company hire a consultant/advisor?
Few of my clients or prospective clients have all the time necessary to accomplish the tasks they would like, or devote the optimal amount of time necessary to complete all their projects as well as they would like. Hence, I tell clients/prospects that one of the best reasons to hire a consultant/advisor like ACME Strategy, is to free up time to focus on more important tasks. Senior management teams at technology companies typically have the raw skill set to perform the tasks they hire me to accomplish. However, they don’t have the time to focus on the project. Or they don’t have recent relevant experience. So by hiring my firm, the client knows they will get senior, experienced and exceptional (in my opinion!) execution.
In addition, a consultant/advisor maximizes likelihood the project is completed in a timely manner. Clients who are too busy often let projects drag on longer than they should due to demands of their other projects.
In sum, hiring a consultant/advisor such as ACME is a great way for a company to improve project execution and free up time to focus on core competencies. See you soon — I hope!
