They approached Cayenne to assist them in refining their fundraising materials. “We spent a couple of months in Excel to develop financial models of various business strategies until we converged on a model that supported the numbers that investors will find compelling. This modeling effort was done in collaboration with Cayenne Consulting. Our consultant has been extremely patient as we revised or refined one hypothesis after another. He has been a great sounding board who helped me develop a more mature vision for the company,” said CEO & Founder, Jean Peccoud, PhD.

Costa Mesa, CA
HealthTab is a software application for use by emergency medical and first responder individuals to improve care on site of an emergency. “On a referral from a personal friend, our company sought the services of [Cayenne Consulting] to assist in the development of our business financials, market research and general business consulting,” said Darren de Flutier & Nick Cerciello, Founding Partners. “It was obvious from the beginning that [our consultant] took great pride in the work he was doing for us. He often called or emailed to confirm our desires and requirements on different aspects of our project. We could tell he was fully immersed in our project because we would receive forwarded emails from him at all hours of the day on related “topics of interest,” something we had not requested of him. He was going the extra mile for us because he knew we were just starting out and could use the extra help. Toward the end of the project [he] made it abundantly clear that he would be available to coach us as we moved forward and that this coaching was included in his fee. From our experience with [our consultant], we found him to be of high moral and ethical character and will most definitely seek his services again in the future.”

Stratify RX is a SaaS company focused on improving patient care and monitoring. “[Our consultant] was always prepared for all of our meetings and had reviewed the material previously, so there was no need to play catch up at the beginning of the meetings…that was a real time saver,” said Justin Domesek, CEO. “[He] was very patient with our lack of factual data metrics but still found an innovative way to create accurate representations of our business plan and financial models. Even though Roger didn’t have exact domain experience in our business, he was able to share valuable business insights and get us thinking creatively about how to structure things (and be able to grow into our business). [He] was very accessible and always had a positive attitude. He was truly a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend [our consultant] to any startup looking to put together business plans and financial models.”
