COMPANY PROFILE

TEKSTART provides interim sales, marketing and business development capital exclusively to hi-tech entrepreneurs during three major stages of their new business adventure:

  • Orienting: for bootstrapped ventures who need to develop, fund and implement a viable business plan
  • Pioneering: for seed-funded startups who need to generate revenue quickly from new products, services or markets
  • Conquering: for venture-funded companies who need scalable business processes for rapid growth and profitability

Our founder has eighteen years of operating experience at emerging growth companies and brings a wealth of practical business expertise to each new client engagement. His collaborative, hands-on approach is ideal for resource-constrained entrepreneurs who value results rather than reports.

Unlike typical consulting firms that offer their services to the entire business community, TEKSTART focuses exclusively on new and emerging high-tech ventures. By concentrating on startups, we’ve been able to build an impressive portfolio of practical and relevant best practices for today’s entrepreneurs.

In addition, unlike service providers that boast a large list of current clients, we specifically limit the number of active engagements. This unique approach allows TEKSTART to provide the highest level of personal service to each client.

The TEKSTART client portfolio includes startups in Enterprise Software, IT Services, Electronic Design Automation (EDA), Semiconductor and Internet (security/infrastructure/b2b) industries, among others. All of these are characterized by long sales cycles of complex products and services in a highly competitive environment. With a successful track record in missionary sales of new and unproven technology into these markets, we are able to immediately add value to our client companies.

With access to a network of professionals around the globe, TEKSTART has enabled American startups to expand overseas and foreign ventures to establish a foothold in North America. Our global experience spans Europe (UK, Netherlands and France), Asia (Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China) and North America (US, Canada and Mexico).

TEKSTART clients enjoy all the benefits of having an experienced sales, marketing and business development executive and entrepreneur on their team, at a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee and with minimal risk to their new venture.
