E.M.M.A. International Consulting Group

Operations Management Consulting
Farmington Hills, MI

E.M.M.A. International is an operations management consulting firm with several U.S. and international locations. They have been in business for 10 years. When it came time to raise additional capital to fund their expansion into software services, they contacted Cayenne to create a compelling business plan, financial model, and pitch deck. They were extremely pleased with the results. “We learned a lot about what a true financial model is,” said Carmine Jabri, Ph.D., Founder & CEO of the company. “Our Cayenne consultant not only created the model, but also made sure we understood the numbers, so we could speak to them. We were very fortunate that our consultant had a great understanding of what we did. Because he understood our main product so well he was able to understand how our firm should approach financing.” When asked to describe how Cayenne can help other entrepreneurial ventures such as EMMA International, Dr. Jabri responded: “They will help you create the plan that you always wanted to do, but 1- did not have the time, and 2- did not have the skill set because your skill set is in running your business.”
