How We Can Help

Business Modeling: Strategic & Operating Plans

Defining business mission, vision, and roadmap…it’s not as hard as it sounds, but it’s certainly a critical first step in ensuring the team has a clear and consistent vision for the company, its product, and its direction. Of course, a strategy, no matter how well-formulated, is entirely useless without effective operational planning: customer lifecycle model, pricing architecture, organizational architecture, capacity model, performance metrics, and systems and tools. With experience and expertise, this doesn’t need to be a daunting task.

Execution Excellence: Operational & Technical Expertise

As it’s been said, “execution eats strategy for breakfast!” Execution is all about identifying the wildly important, prioritizing it, measuring performance against it, and regularly checking in as a team to ensure progress. It’s that simple when you’ve done it before, and we’re happy to help you. To really help you execute with excellence, we dig into both your business and technology with some truly experienced Executives in Residence: experts in operations, software architecture and engineering, big data & analytics, user experience, product management, and even corporate & social responsibility.

Startup Services: Complete Partner Ecosystem

We want the startup ecosystem to flourish. Your success is dependent on leveraging an ever-growing ecosystem of services so that you can focus on your core competence. We help you navigate and negotiate that ecosystem: from office space and promotional products to funding sources and outsourced product development, and everything in between. We’re continually building partnerships with the best service providers who are willing to package their offerings so they’re suitable for startup needs and startup budgets. And if you’re in talks with a non-partner of ours, we’ll sit on the same side of the table as you helping you negotiate terms and pricing that are equitable to both sides.

Mindshare Ventures has brought a level of expertise to my business that has helped shape both my high-level strategy and on-the-ground execution on a variety of fronts. Bassam was able to quickly and easily understand our business model and work with me to highlight important KPIs that we now actively measure and use to fine-tune our strategy on a regular basis.

Mindshare Ventures’ Bassam Salem has served as an advisor to AccelerantBSP where he has provided invaluable insights and advice (and also directed us gently from some directions in our model that have proven to be the wrong trajectory). I trust Bassam as his direct, reassuring style is beneficial to any founder or team, and his track record speaks for itself.
