JumpPhase Ventures is a private venture development lab that takes a hands-on approach to product development, business development and growth. We provide consulting, advisory, and executive leadership around all aspects of building and transforming high performance ventures.
We can provide management consulting, interim executive leadership and other services to help manage and grow your venture.
Strategy is about spending your time and resources wisely. We help you to identify the problems to solve that have real impact, define them with clarity and then do the research to develop an economic model. We design business plans based on proven market size, cost to acquire customers, churn rate, overhead rates and other critical numbers.
You’ve got a product and a target buyer, but you’re not growing fast enough. We can provide sophisticated business development services, from go-to-market strategies, list building and sales collateral design to sales force development and sales training and leadership.
vCTO & Technology
With a long track record of building successful tech companies, we can provide depth of experience, software and systems architecture, project management and other services to help you avoid common pitfalls, control costs, and build sustainable, valuable technology inside your company.
We participate in new ventures, products and syndications as a co-founder or joint venture equity partner in order to provide expertise, hands-on development work and to quickly build enterprise value.
You’ve got a great product and happy clients, but you’re going to need cash to grow. Raising money can be complicated. We provide retained advisory services around capital formation, especially including private placements.
We provide project management services to provide coherent, purpose-driven planning, execution and accountability, management of vendors, project audits and turnaround.
Modern digital marketing is fast and powerful, but complex. Through SEO, SEM, data mining and other methods, we build massive databases of customers for your product, and then we find fun, informative ways to reach them. We also build market credibility and brand awareness through websites, marketing materials, white papers, and channel partner programs.
Mergers & Acquisitions
At some point, with growth, your company is either going to need to buy or get bought. It can be a complicated, risky process. We can provide retained advisory services around mergers and acquisitions, including valuations and term sheet negotiation.
