Venture Capital & Private Equity

Timing is everything.

Whoever coined the phrase likely did so after making or losing a fortune.

In the current market, time is scarce and money is not. Whether determining entry or exit, management change or re-capitalizing, there is more to consider than ever before in private equity. Acting decisively on the right information is the key to success.

Ideate & Co. provides specialized services to private equity investors that leverage our domain expertise in technology, media and telecom. This makes clear in quick order what matters, why, and how much. The numbers, and then beyond the numbers to proprietary insights make the difference.

Our services include:

  • Pre-Investment Sector Analysis

  • Due Diligence

  • Post-Investment Recurring Analysis

  • Performance Oversight & Execution 

We believe that sustained performance is based upon penetrating insight to markets and motivations. Ideate & Co. brings such clarity to pre- and post-investment equations, shedding light onto complex segments or under-served environments.

Whether investing in the pipe or the payload, knowledge matters. Consider Ideate & Co. the right partner to help think, plan and act.


Business Trans-formation

Everything changes, Everyday. With limited opportunities to grow organically due to the struggling economy, executives continue to look toward mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and nontraditional strategies to extend their growth potential.

Business transformation is the fundamental change to the way a business operates, whether that be moving into a new market or operating in a new way[1] It is an approach that attempts to align an organisation's activities relating to people, process and technology more closely with its businessstrategy and vision.

This fundamental change aims to meet long-term objectives.

Uncertainty, issue convergence and factors beyond your control will continue to transform market places, government and business in the foreseeable future. And that’s okay. Understanding that transformation, how it impacts your company and what to do about it enables you to use those changes to your advantage.

Business transformation is achieved by aligning the areas of people, process and technology to achieve significant change, e.g. such as (for example) 50% increased revenue or 25% improved customer satisfaction or a 20% cut in costs as seen in the BBC's transformation program Delivering Quality First.

Let Ideate & Co. provide fresh business insights that can help your organization rethink its approach to customers, products, services, markets and talent. Companies that realize these transformational opportunities can achieve the kind of growth that’s difficult for competitors to imitate. Explore our latest insights to learn more.

Transformation is here, and to worry about it or delay its progress will only cost you in the end. Instead, use it as fuel for providing better customer service and staying ahead of the competition.


Management Consulting

In our experience, strategy is a map to guide resources towards outcomes. It establishes a start, a finish, and the mile-markers of progress.  Seeing over the horizon can create an opportunity, competitive advantage and economic returns.
It's the power of knowing what matters, when, and why.

Ideate & Co. adds value by adding insight. We extend the strengths of our clients, supporting their needs and informing their actions. Often it begins with clear analysis:

  • A potential opportunity's size, timing, risks and trade-offs

  • The economics of current or future market segments

  • Value chains and revenue models

  • Technology in business terms

We work directly with management at the core of a challenge. Our analysis is fresh, objective, and lends itself to rapid accessibility and precise execution. All processes and output are discreet, led by the most experienced team of industry veterans and subject experts in the business, with current perspectives and skills.

No 200-page reports or hockey stick forecasts. Rather, we reflect the market as it is, and as it can be by focusing on what is relevant.
