TIL helps entrepreneurs and corporations reach the markets of tomorrow and realise opportunities for transformational impact and profits
Today’s start-ups are the least profitable at any time in history. Unprofitable scaling creates wealth for the few. It isn’t progress. Selling a $10 bill for $5 is easy. Entrepreneurship is solving a $10 problem for $5.
Time, money and people are valuable. Pivots and failure are not the natural order of entrepreneurship. Business models should not be ‘searched for’. They should be engineered to safeguard an entrepreneur’s intent, make it a lasting reality and create prosperity for the many, not just the few.
We place Integrated Venture Engineering in the hands of entrepreneurs, investors and corporations – and enable them to change the world we live in.
