Achieve Your Vision


Launch | Grow | Exit

Cornerstone helps leaders launch, grow and exit their business successfully by providing the expertise you need.  Our team is comprised of proven entrepreneurs and business leaders who are passionate about helping others and have the experience and knowledge to help you achieve your goals.

Launch

Every great business, new product or service starts with an idea.  An idea that has been well conceived and supported with the right marketing strategy, adequate capital and an executable business plan.  Our Advisors can help you develop a plan, build brand awareness, generate leads as well as raise capital.

Grow

All organizations will "Hit the Ceiling" at some point.  What worked in the past, no longer works now.  Overcoming this obstacle may require you to revise your strategy or change management practices to improve employee performance.  Cornerstone originated the Performance Culture process to help you overcome this challenge.

Exit

We help business owners exit their business through leadership succession as well as transaction support.  In both cases we help you develop a plan to maximize business value and ensure the new leaders or owners can continue to grow the business.

Build Value


Value Drivers are the activities that create value in a company and their presence is evidence to others of value. We suggest that you concentrate on the fundamental business characteristics that buyers and private equity firms assess when they calculate business value.

The Value Building Process enables business owners to increase business value, profitability and workplace satisfaction. Many of our clients have significantly grown their businesses by implementing key elements of Value Building -- A stable and motivate management team, operating systems that improve cash flow sustainability, understanding and nurturing the company’s competitive advantage, a solid and diversified customer base, a realistic growth strategy, effective financial controls, and a good and improving cash flow.

Cornerstone’s approach to Value Building uses a proven process resulting in a set of recommendations that align company objectives with the owner’s goals for the business.  When we talk about value in the context of Business Planning, we divide the discussion into three areas: building value, protecting value, and minimizing income taxes.
