Business Model Development

A service designed to help you establish a practical business case for your proposed health technology concept, document a significant growth opportunity and attract private or public sector growth capital. Specifically, we work with you to research and prepare a business model that demonstrates how your company plans to derive value, such as attract potential buyers, generate revenues, gain market share and earn profits, from your proposed original health technology solution.

Business Model Review Service

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.
