Kate's note: my colleague Chuck Roxin, Managing Director of ZINO Business Development Services is guest blogging on my site for a few posts.
"A well managed and governed company is a good investment."
That is the motto of ZINO Business Development Services. Everyone knows that most start ups are in fact not successful; there may be a debate about the exact percentage, but not the reality. The issue of how to improve the odds of success is critical. To this end investors devote considerable effort to screening, performing due diligence, coaching and mentoring start ups. These activities do in fact improve the odds.
We’d like to improve the odds even further. ZBDS picks up the story when companies begin to experience traction. By providing continuing assistance with management and operations the company’s growth can be propelled with greater confidence. Strengthening governance processes and decision making will do the same.
ZINO Society, as appropriate for an angel investment organization, focuses on what happens with a company shortly after creation. At ZBDS we’re looking at the entire life cycle, from creation through profitable growth or exit. Join us in this effort, and follow ZBDS blogs to learn more about what we do, how we do it, and why it’s important.
