Professional summary

Management consultant with 20+ years of experience in entrepreneurship, corporate strategy, general management, software engineering, finance, sales, advertising, marketing, and other areas.

Since early 2001, I have focused on preparing business plans, financial forecasts, and investor presentations for high-tech companies in the life science, Internet, software, green energy, and related industries.

I have grown my consulting practice to include roughly twenty specialists, so we can probably serve just about any need you may have.

What makes us different? In a world where perhaps fewer than 1 in 100 business plans ever achieve their goals (funding, company sale, etc.), we are proud to say that over two-thirds of our clients have done so.

In the time we have worked together, our business has grown and evolved and the number of topics that Rick Tifone has coached us on is too long to enumerate.

Rick, thanks for a job well done! This has been a most rewarding and informative exercise and I feel better equipped with tools that can help me secure outside investment and analyze my business.
