Venture Capital Due Diligence Marketing Research
Venture capital investment firms require fast turn, robust analysis of market opportunities.We deliver 'real world' marketing research data on how your investment target fares in the marketplace. We assess customer satisfaction, brand position, and marketplace performance in the eyes of their industry and customers.
We tailor each marketing research study for venture capital firms such that our focus is on the decision parameters most important to the VC partners evaluating the venture investment. Some studies are conducted using depth interviews of industry players; others by phone or online market research among customers or prospects of the target company. Whatever the tools and techniques, we work closely with the VC partner or project director to ensure that we uncover the essence of the target's marketing positioning and effectiveness. This permits the Venture Capital firm, our client, to have the best possible information for the venture decision.
For implementation, we understand that "time is of the essence" in evaluating most deals. Thus, we work 24/7 on VC projects to deliver quality data quickly. For fast turn studies we can deliver top line analysis in 10 days or less.
Power Decisions Group is especially well qualified to work with VC firms. We've been there. Our principals have been CEO's, and board members of technology spin-offs and start-ups. We bring this experience to the table as we assess and interpret our primary marketing research data.
Assessing Market Position in Technology Industries with Marketing Research
In technolgy marketing, the value proposition for their B2B technical and management customers is a moving target, both for companies, component suppliers, and their new products. Market segmentation tools can meaningfully identify the need structure of differing market sectors. Technology market research often requires the researcher to be both knowledgeable in the language and concepts of technical issues, while bring a fresh approach to technology marketing issues. Depending on the marketing decisions and issues, we often design technology market research studies using hybrid designs, incorporating market survey method of both qualitative and quantitative genres. When assessing new products opportunities, primary and secondary research can be driven by what we call 'next bench' innovation -- the concepts and market knowledge of technology workers on the firing line. Competitive intelligence techniques may also be required.
