Please check my 20 reviews by changing to All categories/Lifetime on the right side of the screen. I am a certified public accountant, economist, MBA, former employee of KPMG, and co-founder of two Startups . My first startup, Lingolearn, is grossing over $25k of monthly revenue. My second startup, Startupblink, a global directory of the startup ecosystem was featured by CNN, Forbes and Guy Kawasaki. I have mentored and lectured in universities and events (WebSummit, StartupWeekend, Shift Conference etc.) and published several articles on major magazines. I offer top quality consulting and business planning based on my experience. My team also includes a San Francisco based technical writer. My time is limited, and is currently only focused on specific consulting and mentoring.
Our main strength is our ability to produce top-quality business plans that successfully convince investors your business is the right place for them to invest their money. As a CPA, Economist, MBA and more importantly, a co- founder of various startups, I have the necessary experience to lead this process to success and create real added value.
While most business plans go straight to the bin, clients that we’ve worked with are currently busy talking to angels and venture capitalists since our business plans make real business sense. We serve startups and later-stage businesses of all sizes, from one-man shows to major corporate brands.
Due to the fact that senior team members are certified accountants, our financial modeling capabilities are well above the mark. Since investors pay close attention to the financials, we ensure our financial plans are well accounted for with sound projections based on credible facts and figures. We also produce corporate valuations using the most favored industry benchmarks to understand what the business is really worth.
The foundations for our business plans are based on meticulous industry research as well as a sound internal analysis of the workings of the business. Not only do we use leading sources of information, our crafty researchers frequently pull bits of information that are real game-changers. Most importantly, senior partners work closely with you to provide strategic consulting and valuable business insights.
It is no surprise that we have a perfect five star rating on all our projects to date. Aside from business plans, we have worked on a diverse range of projects from economic forecasting to marketing plans. Our expertise also lies in financial analysis and planning, budgeting, database management and financial/ business coaching.
D&S partners and team members are qualified professionals in the industry. We have provided solutions for businesses in a plethora of industries around the globe. Our diverse team of professionals includes certified accountants, consultants, financial and data analysts, writers and experts.
Senior members have worked for Big 4 accounting firms and industry leaders as well as successfully founded their own business start-ups. Most importantly, we have prepared business plans that received significant funding from investors.
Senior partners are:
