We do business and technology advisory work for XaaS platform operators, their ecosystem partners, and their technology providers—via four practice areas:
- Product Management
- Risk Management & Security
- Venture Development
- Strategic Communications
Our clients are players in multichannel payments, fintech, banking, commerce, government, critical infrastructure, command & control, logistics, and XaaS business ecosystems. Clients range in size from tier-one multinationals to startups.
While clients typically engage us at the planning through launch stages of new initiatives, we are able to provide world-class, full lifecycle product and risk management via our partner network.
