Segna Start Up is a new resource designed to pool our experience in strategy consulting and our knowledge of growing small businesses to help set up your business and get it off to a flying start, avoiding the most common mistakes that start ups make.
What we do
Our start up services are designed for entrepreneurs that have a business idea but don’t have the knowledge, resources or the experience to move their concept forward. We offer a bespoke advisory service that gives clear direction and guidance on how to maximise the potential of your business idea and how to avoid making unnecessary mistakes.
How we do it
We discuss your business idea and listen to your thoughts on how you see it developing as a starting point for our own analysis. This analysis forms the basis for helping us test your business concept and determine the effectiveness and scalability of your idea.
We provide feedback based on our assessment of the potential for your business idea and your capabilities. We can also help you to set up your business and provide access to specialist resources.
We look at your business idea and the benefits of using our start… More
We offer a free initial discussion to prospective clients, either by a telephone conversation or a face to face meeting, usually in central London, to get an understanding of your business idea and how we might be able to assist you with your start up venture. If you feel we can help, we start the process of analysing your business idea and the environment in which it will be operating to assess its chances of success.
We gather additional information to analyse your business idea… More
We arrange a second meeting to gather in depth information about your business idea. This information helps us to understand your business proposal better and allows us to begin the process of analysing the business potential in the context of the market in which it will be operating. The analysis forms the basis for the development stage of the process.
We develop your business idea and make recommendations. More
Using the information in our analysis, we offer feedback and recommend changes to improve your business proposition. We also need to consider whether there are any other factors which should be taken into account to make sure that our final recommendations have been properly thought through.
We produce a detailed report on your business proposal. More
We produce a report setting out our assessment of your business proposal and our final recommendations for how your business objectives can be achieved. It begins with an overall analysis of your business idea and then sets out our proposals for improving your business proposition. We recommend how to attract new customers and how to create brand identity, whilst also covering other key areas such as pricing, marketing and sales.
