Consulting Services

Many consulting firms focus on one stage of the business lifecycle. Swiss 1848 is a little different — we work with clients at each stage: start-up, growth and maturity. We understand the problems small business owners have to deal with every day: budgets are tight, resources are limited, and a business plan isn’t worth much if the plan isn’t implemented.

Building a successful, sustainable business is not just about planning. It’s also about execution. Common obstacles to growth are people, technology, and processes. We have experience with all three — getting the right people in place, while using the right technology to execute efficient and effective processes. The following is a partial list of our consulting services. If you have a tough business problem not addressed here, take a look at our management consulting services, or just give us a call.

Our Consulting Services

Business Coaching

Our business coaching service is currently only available to our European customers.  Our focus is on accountability, action and results. Sessions are one-on-one or group coaching based on customers requirements.

Strategy Consulting

Strategy Consulting focuses on helping clients establish a clear vision, long term goals, and a road map. We also help clients communicate and execute their plan. This service is primarily for established businesses and non-profit organizations.

Feasibility Studies

Feasibility Studies focus on market feasibility, in other words: is there a market for this? We do not perform engineering feasibility studies. We perform a feasibility studies for a wide range of clients, including startups, non-profits, government organizations, and businesses of all sizes.

Business Plan Development

Business Plan services are appropriate for startups and established organizations. Our focus is on consulting, not just writing.

Marketing Plan Development

Marketing Plan services are most appropriate for established small and mid-size businesses, although we occasionally also work with non-profits and startups. Our marketing planning process is structured to provide real value, yet flexible enough to suit almost any business. 

Market Research

Market Research is individually tailored to each specific client situation. Most of our market research projects involve interviews or custom panels. We do not prepare or sell standard industry reports.

Exit Strategy Consulting

Exit Strategy services are appropriate for businesses with at least five or ten employees and/or revenue exceeding one million Swiss Francs or equivalent. Common exit strategies include selling the business, private equity recapitalization, gifting (to family members or others) and others.

Audits & Assessments

Audit & Assessment services are designed for small established businesses, but can be adapted to larger businesses and non-profits if desired. Business owners often get so close to their business that they miss the bigger picture. Our assessments help business owners identify problems, bottlenecks, risks and opportunities that may be hiding in plain sight.

We never over-promise, but we always deliver.
