I thought it would be a complicated, difficult exercise to have our vision put on paper. Our Cayenne Consultant took my pieces and created a concise business model that has now made our vision even clearer. Cayenne Consulting was extremely diligent and prompt in delivering the business plan as promised. From start to finish the whole process took less than 60 days to complete this very complicated plan.

While the WBENC paperwork is overwhelming, the guidance and direction provided by Cayenne Consulting LLC made the WBENC application process manageable.
I cannot say enough about Charles and his company. I am starting out on my own wedding and events venue and Charles helped create a solid business plan. The banks said one of the best they had ever seen in 50 years. Charles is super knowledgeable, has a lot of experience in the hospitality industry, and communicated every step of the way. I truly believe my venture would not be happening if it weren't for his help!!! Will not stop praising.
Gold Star experience! Nancy was a gem in advising and assisting with all the WBENC paperwork. I could not have completed the application without her guidance and knowledge!
Nancy guided me through the certification process and was a huge asset. I am very happy with her work and will use her again when we need any other service she provides.
We worked with John Beeby on creating a business plan for our startup and he was phenomenal. Throughout the entire process he was very patient, taking the time to explain his methods and findings to my partner and I so we would have a full understanding. He was thorough, punctual regarding the timeline he promised, and readily available by phone call or text day and night (even after he completed his portion of the project and we still had questions). He spent considerable time researching and understanding our industry even though it was new to him and helped us create a business plan/financial forecast that secured our funding. We truly could not have asked for a better consultant and would 100% recommend John to anyone needing help!
After running a successful daycare business from my home for the past 3 years, I decided it was time to move to a commercial space where I could serve more families. This move requires a significant capital investment as I intend to buy a property and convert it to a daycare. To fund the purchase of the property, additional equipment and for working capital needs, I will supplement my capital investment with a bank loan. After identifying a suitable property, I hired Cayenne Consulting to prepare a business plan for submission to my bank. Unfortunately, the property fell through and after finding a second property, I had to go back to Cayenne to ask them to revise the business plan and financial forecast to reflect the second property. They were not only happy to help me at no additional cost, but they were responsive to my need to get this done quickly. No doubt, Cayenne has been a great partner for us as we work to expand our business.
Working with Nancy at Cayenne has been such an amazing experience! From our first conversation, she has been such an incredible support, guiding me every step of the way to reach our goals. Nancy's level of commitment is truly top notch! Would recommend Nancy and Cayenne 100%!
Nancy was the most Professional honest and aggressive person I've ever worked with. She answered all my questions. My company is now MWBE. DBE.SBE. EBE. And this was 4 months ahead of schedule. Thank you Nancy.
Highly reccomend Cayenne Consulting. Very professional, quick and they help you secure certification a lot quicker and more effectively than an individual can do on their own!
Nancy was extremely helpful and through her efforts I was able to certify my business as a SDVOSB. She went above and beyond, and continued to help and guide me through the process even after all invoices were paid. Very rare to see that level of commitment to customer service... Would definitely recommend!
Nancy has been an amazing asset to my company in helping me become a certified WOSB and WBE! She was the perfect guide on this journey and had a huge influence in making me successful! She is professional, responsive, strategic…everything I could’ve asked for!
The team a Cayenne was instrumental in helping articulate a thoughtful business plan, resulting in a very successful venture financing. Grateful for their support and partnership. Highly recommend.
After speaking with several consulting firms Our company chose to work with Nancy Clauss with Cayenne Consulting, which turned out to be an excellent decision. Nancy was not only professional and extremely responsive but, she really knew what she was doing. Nancy was able to help our company successfully become a certified WOSB! I would highly recommend Nancy for any company trying to navigate the certification process.
I enjoyed working with Tony Vicari and Nancy Clauss. They are professional and know what they're doing. Cayenne consulting was important for us to gain knowledge about what investors are looking for, what KPIs they focus on and how a business model, financial forecast and pitch deck should look like.
"Shyam's (Cayenne Principal Consultant) wide experience and expertise made him an excellent business mentor and consultant. He can quickly grasp a customer concept and turn them into a cohesive sensible product fit for investor presentation. He also has a keen ability "to see" what customers can not see, and that "eagle eye" just sharpens further the business modelling he crafts. Great mentor and consultant"
I’ve worked with Cayenne Consulting on a number of projects in a number of capacities. I first met Cayenne’s founder, Akira, in 1999 when he was working on his own startups in Silicon Valley. As a tech insider and angel investor, he asked me to critique his business plans and financial forecasts and I was blown away – they were among the best I had seen, and I’ve seen a lot. After Akira started Cayenne Consulting in 2001, I’ve had numerous opportunities to seek help from him and his team, including business plans and financial forecasts for a content distribution and media rights management enterprise software solution, a law enforcement software platform, and an electric motorcycle startup. They’ve also provided input into several other startup concepts. Cayenne’s work is consistently top notch, and priced accordingly. I’m a serial entrepreneur so I’m always involved in a couple of new startups every year. I plan to keep working with Cayenne whenever my business can afford it because it’s money well spent. Akira – thank you for all of the help over the past 15 years!
