CBV has successfully partnered with a range of CEOs facing various circumstances: cash constrained start-ups, business model pivots or contemplating an exit. CBV’s operating style is collegial and particularly well suited to help the CEO adhere more to an objective and externally focused analysis of markets, competitors and opportunities.
How We Work
Free Consultation: Upfront meetings to discuss needs and make sure we can help.
