Often I’m asked by potential clients why would I engage a private consultant when there are all kinds of accelerators, incubators, and studios along with a variety of crowdfunding sources out there? My answer is you don’t receive the intense attention and interest that you would otherwise receive by engaging a private consultant.
These groups are not committed to spending the time necessary to work with you, and oftentimes the staff lacks the business experience, background, and know-how to get the job done. Further, there are so many out there, the quality, as well as their performance, radically vary. It’s very difficult to make the right choice. And once made there is no turning back.
