Protean Approach

We are entrepreneurs, too.

We know what it takes to raise capital, define a market and build a product to maximize an opportunity.

Launching a product and launching a company are often the same project. We bring company building skills to every project we do. We are an outsource team that shows up, talks to your customers, and prepares you to seek investment or board approval.

We work with management on all strategic aspects of a product launch as well as the tactical execution.

Our partners each boast two decades of experience expanding successful startups and creating successful products. Our companies raised more than $130 million of angel and venture capital. Our past and present client list includes Sage, Abila, Staples, The American Heart Association, Alcatel, GuideStar, Samsonite, and many others.

The platforms we designed have processed billions in electronic payments. Both partners are recognized experts in building with lean and agile approaches while also architecting for high security and scalability, and are named inventors on a patent regarding online transaction security.
