Supporting a cybersecurity Series A round
Supporting a cybersecurity Series A round at Whalebone. Petra Wolkenstein: “Richard Malovic and his team have successfully proven that their product can be scaled.”
Interim business development with startup Refinder
The startup had a three-month interim business development position to fill in order to define two new areas of business, negotiate with partners, implement a business model and lead generation process, generate leads, and finally, launch marketing campaigns.
Startup expansion coaching for the ‘geometry gods’ at Feasible
The managing directors at Feasible required coaching on several business topics (pricing, business model, financial plan, marketing and sales negotiations) which we covered under our expansion coaching programme.
Compensation architecture and performance management via OKRs
We decided that OKR (Objectives & Key Results), a recent & more flexible approach to performance management, was fit for Njuškalo’s current set-up. It was also the best way to actively involve the entire organization into an ongoing dialogue over performance, over the things that really make a difference for the company, its employees and its customers.
