What we do

Working inside tsf.tech, we look to work with and support three types of startup ventures...

Investors

Our service to investors is based on helping them assess the technical potential and vulnerabilities…

  • Helping them understand their technology strategy, feasibility and risk in an initial startup proposition.
  • Working collaboratively with investors and entrepreneurs on a PoC/MVP build.
  • Offering strategic insights to help shape the thinking and decision making for second and third stage funding.

Commercial & market experts

We work with people who have market expertise and have identified a high-growth tech product opportunity.

  • Provide a ‘CTO-as-a-Service’ to help structure their proposition, giving strategic insights on ‘the art of possible’.
  • Develop a product roadmap and investment plan to enable a compelling investor pitch.
  • Partner to deliver a PoC/MVP build, and beyond to v1.0, providing hands-on assistance to build their own tech team capabilities.

In-progress tech ventures

Entrepreneurs building a high-growth tech enabled company, looking for evolutionary tech insights to reboot their venture.

  • Provide a ‘critical friend’ resource to challenge and help reshape the current thinking and redirect the strategy
  • Enhance internal capabilities with technical expertise to accelerate product development
  • Collaborate to drive business growth via ongoing mentoring support at a board and engineering level in the organisation

We share the risk

In most cases, after undertaking our own due diligence and with transparent discussions, we have an appetite to share the risk and back our own judgement: we take equity stakes in lieu of professional fees.
