Our highly customized solution wherein we work side-by-side with your team to determine how we can support your brands in their attempts to grow and scale their businesses efficiently. After an intensive needs analysis we'll leverage both educational content and hands on support to take their operations to a whole new level.
As a result of our decades of experience, we've identified and actively target nine common risk factors that, if appropriately addressed, can reduce the likelihood of failure. These manifest in different forms and may need to be addressed at different times based on the brand, the target industry, the venture's stage of development, as well as the leadership team. Regardless of where they are, we can get them to where they, and you want them to be.
We actively source a variety of experts from all industries to serve as advisors and technical support for all 1863 member brands. Our goal is to have someone with relevant industry expertise and access to both enable and engage your portfolio brands upon request.
A custom and hands-on approach to deal-flow wherein the 1863 staff run targeted programming nationwide to develop a list of process-driven and pre-vetted brands that are investment-ready by the end of the program. Leveraging the experience of the 1863 staff and the expertise of our Brain Trust, we'll do the work required to take your high potential investments from "Not Ready" to "High-Value."
We meticulously track our member brand performance to understand what's working and isn't—doubling down on and optimizing successful strategies and processes while evaluating approaches that failed and why. This allows 1863 to streamline our support to similar brands.
We understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work for all of our partners and the brands they aim to support. So we've got a suite of options designed to meet your organization's budget constraints and the outcomes you aim to provide for your brands.
Not only do you have access to 1863 member brands that match your criteria, but you also gain access to brands across the nation that have been pre-vetted by our partners in major cities around the United States.
