Right Team/Right Time
There is a Talent Shortage. With NYC now the second largest VC market in the US, Madison Avenue holds the keys to exit for more investor portfolios than ever. The harsh reality is that the growth of ‘Tech Alley’ in NYC has resulted in a shortage of talent that understands technology, media and how advertising is bought and sold to AND has the rolodex to bring new ad products to market. Chief Marketing, Revenue, and Strategy officers are hard to come by, and internal sales forces are too expensive to, making the journey from $0 to Breakeven an even longer and harder road than it needs to be. Furious Minds’ ‘Right Team/Right Time’ model addresses this by providing the talent and outside sales solutions to take early stage companies to key revenue milestones faster.
Revenue MUST Be Part of the Product Roadmap
Considering and bringing the monetization strategy up stream into the product development cycle will result in more efficient capital utilization (reduced burn) through reduced lead times, product revisions and a faster time to revenue. This is true for early stage start-ups, as well as new product launches within large companies looking to realize new revenue streams and diversify. It took Zuckerberg’s stock to fall more than anyone expected it needed to for him to realize that people want to work for successful organizations, and revenue and profit are a capitalist market’s gauge of success. An audience does not a business make. (One word. Bebo.)
