Portfolio Leadership Scan

We work with your partner team to analyse how founders in your portfolio will be challenged over the next 12 months.
 


 

Our goal is to explore where your founders are exposed before it becomes critical, enabling early action.
 
We identify, (i) green, no issue anticipated, (ii) amber, significant challenges expected in the next six months, (iii) red, immediate problems evident.
 


 

From this, we advise on interventions to address amber & red issues.
