Value Created
At CERTICOM, an original cryptography technology innovator was transformed into the leader in security for the wireless Internet. The company listed on NASDAQ, and raised $42 million.

At SCIBAC, a first-time CEO used the GAUGE scaffold to assess her strategy and align it with her team. She raised an additional $800 thousand in seed funding as a bridge to CARB-X grants worth $3.75 million.

At AWI, a small team took its first steps towards independence. The non-profit organization partnered with a major educational institution, rebranded and doubled its program attendance.
