In today's startup world, many CEOs are domain
experts rather than technical experts. They possess great insight into their market, but lack the technical expertise necessary to realize their business vision in an age when software has eaten the world.
With so much investment interest in technology, most good CEOs can access capital fairly easily. Their bigger challenge is often access to the necessary software engineering expertise which ensures they're building the right product with the right technologies.
Finding the right product and technology team in the early stages of a business can be a crucial enabler, one that gives the CEO the requisite runway to accelerate the company towards a long-term solution. And solving this challenge requires more than just a capital partner, it requires a digital partner
As digital partners, venture services
firms bring essential capabilities to their clients in precisely these circumstances. They are hands-on in the definition of the product strategy, technical architecture, product roadmap and the mapping of analytics back to business KPIs. The value they deliver extends well beyond the provision of engineering resources. Even the best engineers are rarely able to provide the strategic, technology and product guidance that most CEOs need.
