The passion that startups exhibit in their desire to change the world is unparalleled, and the impact they have on the US society is impressive. The Kaufman Foundation Index of Entrepreneurial Activity asserts that in 2017, startups generated 5.27 jobs per 1000 people in the US, and 45% of the new entrepreneurs were from minority groups, which is commendable.
With a social entrepreneurial mind-set, at Agnos, we believe in promoting and supporting these startups to help them get into the mainstream. We prepare and nurture the new ventures for growth and scale by offering them the required guidance and support, and help them build-up the necessary infrastructure. From product or service planning, lean management, operational assistance to go-to-market strategies, we assist start-ups at every stage of development.
We show you how to apply the principles of agility beyond IT across the whole organization. Our agile transformation will look throughout your entire organization to find specific areas where an agile operating model can unlock value.
We help you quickly develop, test, and implement cloud solutions that meet the unique regulatory and security requirements of your sector. We help you transition to a new era of data and analytics with our cross-functional team of industry and startup experts. We help you reinvent operations, business models, and customer and worker experiences. We help you explore, imagine and develop industry-specific applications of new technologies for your business. We help you research, ideate, and experiment with leading-edge technology solutions through proofs-of-concept and minimum viable products.
We help you create solutions powered by New IT to transform your business and your customers’ experience. We help you connect with startups, businesses, academia, and more to scale meaningful innovation together. We help you unlock all the “eureka moments” trapped in the "not invented here" parts of your organization. We show you how to identify functional and visualization experts in your company that can turn data into actionable insights. We help you incubate and accelerate breakthrough ideas and create innovative solutions.
We help you put in place the foundational elements for the implementation of a Growth Portfolio based on using the Business Model Canvas to explore new ideas or reinvent your existing business models. You'll learn how to make underlying risks explicit, test hypotheses, and course-correct rapidly across Customer Segments, Value Propositions, Channels, and all the Business Model Canvas quadrants. We help you prioritize the ideas that show the most potential based on evidence and how to intensify testing the hypotheses that support pursuing these ideas.
We teach you to perform experiments that for example let you truly vet a Customer Segment's willingness to pay or related pricing experiments. You will learn the Lean Startup Methodology that uses strong evidence to identify business ideas likely to succeed. We can help you further intensify testing by helping you quickly build Minimum Viable Products and gather evidence that you can use to acquire and retain customers. We will help you scale these MVPs for further internal investments or taking these MVPs to external investors.
We will help you build a world-class business plan (target markets, Porter's 5 forces, capital requirements, revenue, etc.) get funding or financing, help you with sales and marketing, set up your business (attorneys, accountants, HR, technology, etc.) and immediately plug you into an extensive network of business and IT movers and shakers who can coach you or even become your first clients.
We will help you execute your strategy and business plan by ensuring laser focus on execution accountability, essentially the ‘Who doing What by When’ that enables you to achieve your business plans within defined timelines. We will help you work within your constraints around investment and spending plans and help you prioritize the critical path of your business plan. We also help you respond effectively to the changing market demands to enhance the likelihood of seeking better returns by staying close to your customers, learning from your competitors and maintaining organizational alignment between functional areas as sales & marketing, and engineering.
We believe in profit with a purpose. We believe that not just embracing entrepreneurship but teaching and inspiring "all" folks about the virtues of entrepreneurship will lead our country towards greater prosperity. We are not just entrepreneurs but "social entrepreneurs” which makes a significant difference in our motivation to work with you.
Being experts, we understand the challenges that a new organization faces in optimizing the use of business resources to support growth. We help you understand your current cost to serve and highlight the areas where you can reduce your capital expenditures and operational costs.
