Diligence Completed Thoroughly and Timely

“Getting reliable, knowledgeable input on both technology and business is critical to making sound decisions for venture capital investments.  Tech-I-M provided both to me in a timely fashion for an investment in trucking.  The summary report was thorough and easily understood.  Tech-I-M quickly got to the core issues related to the product, the company team, the market, the strategic marketing and business plan, and the intellectual property protection.  I look forward to using Tech-I-M in the future for business assessment and other possibilities.”

Real Passion for Understanding and Improving Businesses

I worked with Paul on the board of directors for a high growth green-technology and finance company. Paul was able to immediately jump into a complex business model, identify the core issues, take responsibility for the technology portion of the business and start driving it. His technology understanding is deep and we were delighted to rely on him. He has a real passion for understanding and improving businesses. I recommend him without reservation as a go-to guy.”

My co-facilitator and I can’t thank you enough for all of the time and thought you put into your presentation yesterday.  It must have taken a lot of hours to compile all of that information and those resources! The attendees thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot from you.  They all said in their surveys that they were very grateful for the opportunity to learn from someone who is so knowledgeable about business trends and small business development resources.  You had excellent information regarding how to manage cash flow, what type of business structure they should consider, what kinds of services they should consider outsourcing, how to understand their competitive edge, the basics of preparing a business plan, and so much more.  Many of them told us that they were excited to review the materials you provided for additional information.

We and our workshop attendees are so grateful that there are people like you throughout the community that are willing to donate their time to help others navigate the bumpy waters of entrepreneurship!  We hope you have a wonderful summer!

Catalyst Toward Growth

“I worked with Paul over the past year through consulting work for our company, as well as the past several years in his role as chairman of the SAE Truck and Bus Electrical Committee. Paul has demonstrated a very deep knowledge of the Trucking Industry including not just the technical developments but also the companies involved and the business/regulatory conditions affecting the industry. He stays very well connected through a number of industry groups, and is eager to share his knowledge. He was able to take his vast technical knowledge and bring it to a level that we could digest and start to use to shape our future direction. Paul has a very straightforward style with complex issues, and has the ability to link the technical issues to the business issues, which can be a key catalyst towards growth (or impediment if not addressed).
In his role as SAE committee chairman, Paul had great command of a very diverse group of individuals from different companies. He stayed objective, and kept discussions from going into the weeds and his leadership will be missed.
No hesitation in recommending Paul for anyone interested in growing their business”
