• Business Planning: Since there are only three ways to fund any business using equity investment, debt or sales, having the “cash” you need to finance the dreams of any new to growing business is key to success. This is why all companies need a good business plan.

A business plan precisely defines your business, identifies your goals, and serves as your firm's resume. The basic components include a current and pro forma balance sheet, an income statement, and a cash flow analysis. It helps you allocate resources properly, handle unforeseen complications, and make good business decisions. Because it provides specific and organized information about your company and how you will repay borrowed money, a good business plan is a crucial part of any loan application. Additionally, it informs sales personnel, suppliers, and others about your operations and goals.

• Sales and Marketing: Developing a strong strategic marketing and sales plan always starts with the first question. How will it be funded? From there, decisions on market size, market leader or market follower, distribution channels, direct sales issues, the appropriate marketing mix investment, Return on Investment, competitive issues, risk analysis and importantly, the effectiveness of company personnel to execute the plan, etc. can be developed.

• Patent Development/Patent Acquisition: To provide an additional level of protection for investors and equity holders by creating a barrier to entry against potential competition, patents can be important. However, high legal costs, poor articulation of the patent to begin with combined with inexperience in seeking them can be financially painful and end up in failure or not be broad enough to reduce competitive patents. Experience in worldwide patent acquisition and licensing can save money and increase the chances of success. ESS personnel has this experience.

• Sale of Business: Selling a business can be a complex process combining both financial and emotional elements. Finding that Win/Win outcome usually works best for the buyer and seller. Facts about the company’s financial condition, market opportunities, product stages, competition and personnel are just a few issues that will need addressing and realized by both the buyer and the seller so appropriate values can be placed upon the company’s worth.

• International Business: A company can substantially increase its overall revenue/profits and thereby it’s net worth by aggressively seeking out opportunities for its products and services globally. Most US small and mid-size domestic companies are vastly inexperienced in this effort. Beside cultural issues, there are other issues having to do currency exchange, finding local staff that can execute, increased costs, local government, product appeal and/or localization to a foreign customer base

• Intellectual Property Licensing: Maximizing the intellectual property of a company can be realized by raising capital and developing the opportunity internally or entering into a strategic relationship with a 3rd party through a licensing venture. Making such a deal with an upfront payment may look good at first but how will the new 3rd party licensor execute and maximize your hard work and intellectual property. What is their marketing plan? Can and will they deliver? Are you getting the right royalty fee? Once again, inexperience in this area can cost your company real dollars, having your intellectual property potentially damaged in the marketplace and an inability to regain the value of your IP.

• Operations Management: To execute a well developed business plan centers around “execution by management”. An operation of any company is made up of many detailed business issues, complex personnel issues, environmental factors known and many unknown, financing issues and more. Consequently, the day to day operations of the company is a detailed process that demands both focus and constant attention. Having developed and lead successful business situations, ESS personnel have the experience where to place business priorities, interact with company personnel through leadership and identify risks that could hamper success.

• Software/Hardware Development Cycles: Investment in technology development is a high stakes game. Software and hardware development cycles benefit from experienced management. ESS's executives have years of experience in complex software and hardware engineering cycles gained from direct management of technology engineering professionals on teams as large as 45 hardware/software engineers and testing/integration personnel. Knowing how to prioritize features, determine fact from fiction while balancing the requests from customers, dealing with sensitive personalities, deciphering the technical issues facing the engineering professionals and requests from marketing while also integrating  the goals of the development project/agenda into the overall plan of the enterprise are key issues to understand in the mix.
