There’s one thing you should know…
I’ll never advise you to sell your home to take your idea forward.
There’s always another way and we will find it.

Starting with a new Idea?
Lean Commercialisation is a program that starts with your idea and finds the names and contact details of customers who will buy it. By working through the five stages of Discovery (User, Problem, Solution, Finance and Launch) you will know whether it’s worth launching a crowd funding campaign and paying a manufacturer to start production.
See the impact…
He never dismissed my creative ideas and vision but rather blended and enhanced my ideas and applied his framework around it adding technology, finance and skill sets into the picture. This made working together most unusual and a real joy. Every meeting brought new insights and ways to solve problems.
We had a great idea, but two problems: to build it we needed money and we needed money to build it. Brian showed us that, by asking the right questions, we could find customers to replace investors. It worked. Our first customers paid for our solution to be built.
Brian’s initial workshops opened my eyes to how to progress with the development of my product. He helped me identify a solid path and showed me how and where time needed to be invested.
Brian helped us see possibility and purpose when we had almost given up. He kept us focused without the ‘should have’ discussions, but rather worked with us, providing guidance and insights along the way.
Start your Journey.

Raised $13M from customers
Customers’ money proves traction and I founded a messaging company in 1995 which I grew to 13,200 paying customers (including Telstra), 23 staff and a turnover of $5M. I co-founded an internet security company which, with 2 customers, was sold to Cisco Systems Inc 25 months later yielding a return of $7M (a 50x return).
Raised $11M for founders
Selected 23 companies out of 235 for pitch coaching and presentation to Investors, Business Angels and Venture Capitalists. Successfully got a total investment of $11M for 11 of those companies of which $1M6 was from local Business Angels. As Entrepreneur in Residence helped hundreds of companies at SETSquared to validate their customer proposition.
