Advisory Services

Strategic Advisory and Enterprise Acceleration

Companies seeking to become a new entrant into a market or to grow and develop in a current market have standard needs that are often poorly managed, resulting in slower progress and potentially business failure.  While inexpensive capital is forefront for every business leader, to be successful, all businesses need to be market-driven solving problems that are urgent, pervasive and for which customers are willing to pay.  Thus, market assessment including trends, problem verification and sizing (value to solve), competition and accessibility are key.  R5 advises in these strategic product management issues. 

Defining human and financial capital requirements, time to market, sales model/channel and partnership (development or channel) opportunities are other areas of R5’s expertise.   

The results of utilizing these types of services are a faster, more direct path to improved growth and profitability.

Specific capability and expertise brought to our clients under the umbrella of Strategic Advisory and Enterprise Acceleration services include the analysis and management of:

  • Capital needs and potential funding sources
  • Human resources (human capital, management team)
  • Market problems, trends
  • Partnership/Outsourcing opportunities – including joint venture, M&A and international expansion
