Business Model Review Service

Designed to help health technology startups and small emerging firms gain private investor funding, Eighteen Ventures’ Business Model Review Service analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of their business strategy.  In particular, the review process ensures that the business model includes the necessary information & data which informs investors about the company’s intentions of growing a successful business with a novel, problem-solving, marketable solution. 

The review process, more importantly, identifies ways to improve each component, i.e., customer segment, value proposition, revenue structure, etc., resulting in a persuasive document that attracts the interest and attention of potential private investors.
