How We Help
We value relationships. We do business with those we know, like, and trust. We hope you do too. Our no obligation free consultation give us all a chance to get to know one another. We’ll learn about your challenges and goals. We will share more about our process, how it works and what you can expect to move your ideas to reality.
Are you on the brink of an idea that’s not fully come together? Is your intuition telling you you ‘just might have something’? We’ll work through the concept, thought process, research possible competition and assess whether or not this has ‘legs’ to meet your goals and expectations. We’ll coach you toward an end product that is viable and worthy of investor presentation.
All great products provide user friendly, memorable branded design for ease of use. Apple products are a perfect example of how design and development walk hand in hand. CG designs all apps and websites with best practices for intuitive user experiences and brand development for long term recognition.
Our upfront, in-depth market research will examine your market and the competition. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t always have to be first to market. If you do have competitors, we will identify them, and provide a go-to-market strategy. With CG, you won’t spend a lot of time, effort and money to develop a product or solution only to discover that no one wants to purchase it. Our marketing team will help identify whether or not your idea has ‘legs’, and make recommendations based on measurable research. We will help tweak your idea if need be based on this research.
What to Look For in An Incubator Program
It is important to find an incubator that is the best fit for your business. Family or colleagues may have your best interests at heart but often can’t give you the independent, well researched, honest advice you need. How will you find the resources necessary to get your project to either a demonstration mode, or working for your customers? Is there a real opportunity that is being underserved that you can fix? What does a competitive analysis look like? Does your business require resources outside of your ability?
CG’s Incubator Program offers:
Business and Financial Plans
Preparing business and financial plans are crucial for giving your business direction, defining your objectives, mapping out strategies to achieve your goals and manage possible bumps in the road. These plans are important tools for understanding how your business is put together, defining short and long term goals, strategy to achieve them and how you drive the future. Thorough plans are crucial to venture capitalists determining whether to invest in a startup.
Connections to Investors
A challenge for most startups is that it is much harder to get your startup funded than it was in the past, simply because there are so many startups vying for much-coveted funding. Combustion’s Incubator Program connects you with investors. We will introduce you and, after completion of our thorough incubator program, you will be well prepared to present your business to venture capitalists for consideration of start up capital.
While plans and spreadsheets are impressive, and necessary to show investors, so is the product and it’s branding. Combustion will design a realistic model that will convey your brand, the attributes of your product, a user friendly intuitive experience and overall look and feel of your product.
