WHAT WE DO FOR VENTURE INVESTORS
Sand Hill Partners reduces the amount of capital and time required for VC portfolio companies to nail the product, nail the target customer profile, and scale the sales model. We help venture-backed start-ups get it right the first time.
Further, our unique methodology gives an investor reliable optics on the success of a portfolio company's product and business model before the expense and time of full-scale development, launch and sales. With Sand Hill Partners, a CEO can minimize monthly cash burn while we work our process hands-on with a small team to test out and dial-in the market sweet spot, product concept, product definition, effective messaging, and sales model - all in a manner of weeks.
The big idea is to enable a venture investor to make a much smaller initial investment that reduces the risk and accelerates the return of a larger follow-on tranche. Our process is predictive - we find out early if there is a "there" there. We work with desired customers to segment out the areas of highest pain, determine real price points, and isolate the minimal viable product requirement (all the way down to the exact user experience and feature set.)
Sand Hill Partners is an especially good resource for hands-on triage
when a portfolio company is struggling to uncork its sales and make its numbers.
