Start-Ups are a whole different place. We've been there.
For every successful start-up company, there comes a time when you must start producing. Your investors have just given you a new round of funding, perhaps Series C or D, and there is a set of expectations associated with that funding that involve starting delivery of the product or service that your company will produce. If you do not meet the investors' expectations, some very negative things can happen, including the introduction of a new management team.
This transition period is one of the inflection points where failure is most likely for a start-up. The team strengths that got you this far are often not sufficient or not the right mix to successfully navigate the transition. Bring in a BlueShift Consulting team that consists of an individual or individuals who have successfully navigated these obstacles before. Keep us until you achieve the focus you need to succeed, and then send us home. We will even help you identify the positions you need to fill for long-term success, and help you identify and recruit the best candidates.
"Real Artists Ship"
That statement is attributed to Steve Jobs circa 1983. The message, whether Steve really said it or not, still resonates at Apple.
An outstanding business plan, a great marketing strategy, and products that are full of potential on paper are important, but unless you can navigate that minefield that separates development from production, it will not matter. If you do not produce, you will not succeed.
