Startup Consulting

STARTUP CONSULTING

Guidance, coaching, and advisory supporting new businesses and entrepreneurs.

General and Strategic Business Consulting

We are proud of our foundational experience both in assisting hundreds of new businesses and entrepreneurs, as well as in our own entrepreneurial fabric.  With our authentic perspectives and hands on knowledge within several different industries, startup life stages, and operational roles, LEACIF offers guidance, consulting, and coaching services designed to support the fluid needs of new and developing business ventures.  

Whether you are just starting out and need help understanding general business aspects, are looking for a mentor or coaching partner to challenge, motivate, and help you brainstorm new ideas, or additional structure to help you stay on track or implement your idea, we assist our startup and entrepreneurial clients in many unique ways.  

We also provide business plan assistance, including financial presentations, as well as advisory related to business partners, investors, lenders, and third-party service provider relationships.

Entity Structuring and Operating Agreement Tax Matters

When considering entity tax structures, we assist our clients with understanding the details of different tax entity types, formation requirements, and planning for the structuring approach that best aligns with their needs and long-term goals.  Supporting both simple and complex structuring needs, we encourage our services to be combined with a client's legal advisory and proactively sought prior to drafting governance documents.  We work with sole proprietorship, partnership, and corporate structures, including with early reorganization and ownership change aspects.

For more complex operating structures, LEACIF advises and assists with partnership tax matters, related party and multi-entity considerations, funding, investor, and lender considerations, and the associated operating agreement details.  We also assist clients with intellectual property, consulting, rental, and service related agreements and structural needs.

Intellectual Property Advisory

Entrepreneurs, company founders, and potential partners may often encounter business scenarios where the contribution or use of intellectual property comes into consideration.  Our approach advising and assisting clients with intellectual property matters focuses on structuring and compliance, including contracts and tax matters.  Our overall goal is to help ensure founders and intellectual property holders are aware of details that may affect them now, and in the future, and proceed with structuring intellectual property matter agreements more comprehensively and with greater confidence. 

 

We also assist with accounting considerations, including partnership book accounting, licensing agreement transactions, and related party transactions.

 

Accounting and Record Keeping Setup

Maintaining accounting records and the ability to produce financial reports is foundational to the long-term success of a new business.  It can also help avoid unnecessary problems and future expenses that result from disorganized and incomplete information.  We understand that balancing cost and practicality in the early stages of a business's life are also critically important.  Our goal is to assist clients with a meaningful and usable approach to early stage accounting and record keeping needs.
