Value Lab

Do you know where the real value sits in your company? Have you thought how the outside world might view your organisation when it comes to raising finance or eventually selling your business? Why can some businesses raise seemingly endless finance, whilst others struggle with modest requests? What makes some businesses worth significantly more than others of a similar scale? Are there barriers in your business that mean you won’t be able to sell it at all?

The Value Lab is our in-house methodology that helps you answer these questions by putting your business under the microscope for a day. For many this can be the start of the journey towards exit for others, simply an opportunity to make your management team aware of the value drivers in your business.

We know it’s hard to see the wood for the trees sometimes and work out where you should best focus. Whether that is building on the value you already have or homing in on your problem areas. The aim of the Value Lab is to help you clarify where your effort is best spent.

The Value Lab is a full day workshop where we discuss what really drives value. Born of numerous transactions and negotiations, business situations and challenges, our experience derived advice becomes increasingly tailored to you as the day progresses. There is plenty of generic advice available to all business owners however, filtering the relevant advice is the important bit. We take you through the 12 key areas of your business from Assets to Innovation, Management team to Scalability. Looking at each we work with you and debate your current position and its impact on your overall value.

Most importantly, we provide a full record of the day’s conclusions and a series of recommendations that will help you enhance value more quickly.
