Bridging the investment gap
In business, entrepreneurs and investors can often feel like they are on opposite sides of a gaping chasm – the entrepreneur wanting the business to develop to follow his own goals and passions, versus the investor who is only looking for the bottom line.
StormForward can help to bridge that gap, understanding fully the need for the entrepreneur to adapt his business to grow to meet investor demands, while maintaining the opportunity for him to make his mark and feel the business is still his own.
The investors can be assisted in understanding when to intervene to ensure the business meets the goals required, but perhaps more importantly when to leave the entrepreneur alone to get on with achieving those goals.
