Many entrepreneurs and companies have great ideas. But growing those great ideas into great companies is more complex than it appears. Customers do not flock to you because you have a great idea. Arbor Dakota helps you grow that great idea into a great company…the hard part of entrepreneurship.
We specialize in helping early stage tech companies with developing uncontested markets, sharpening their message and presence, improving their sales discipline and achieving the growth that they, and their investors desire. We also help them better understand the metrics that drive valuation, improve the probability of funding (or even eliminate the need for funding) and reducing the amount of mistakes that they make (and there are many). We combine creativity with experience with hard work to achieve results that will not disappoint. We love the dirty, messy, ugly process of early stage company development. And, if you want, we will work side-by-side with you and actually pitch in and do the work. We’re hands-on, not just advice from afar.
Our customers include tech companies ranging in size from $0 revenue to $50M in revenue, economic development organizations, university technology transfer offices, incubators, accelerators and VC firms (for portfolio companies).
