Details of Sustainable Companies

Green start-ups with these traits often will tell us the success of a business and the likelihood of it becoming a lasting company with a sustainable business plan. We like to partner with companies that have:

Clarity of Purpose

Summarize the company’s business on the back of a business card.

Large Markets

Locate and define existing markets poised for rapid growth or change.

Upscale Customers

Target customers who are most likely to pay a premium for a unique offering.

Simple Focus

Customers will only buy a simple product with a singular value proposition.

Solve the Problem

Pick the one thing that is of burning importance to the customer then delight them with a compelling solution.

Think Outside the Box

Take the contrarian route. Create novel solutions. Go into Survivor mode Outwit, Outlast and Outplay the competition.

The Team Members

A company’s team is set in the first 90 days. All team members are the smartest or in their domain. “A” level entrepreneurs should attract an “A” level team.


Stealth and speed will usually help beat-out large companies.


Focus spending on what’s critical. Spend only on the priorities and maximize profitability. Do not spend on premium items unless the payback will be there. EX. We had a company who was running out of cash that went to a press event and made up 250 usb drives that were custom imprinted with their logos that had way too much storage on them for the press kit they created. It cost them $10 each. They could have gone to office max to spend $1 ea for usb’s and printed out beautiful color labels on their printer and save $2250 dollars to spend on payroll or rent.

Start up money

Start with only a little money. It forces discipline and focus. A huge market with customers yearning for a product developed by great engineers requires very little firepower.
