For almost three decades, Smaby Group's strategic advisory practice focused on building successful new ventures. Whether advising a Fortune 500 or barebones start-up, we served as a Venture Catalyst; assisting new venture executives with highly focused and tailored strategic advisory expertise.

Our mission was to help forward-thinking business builders explore and exploit emerging market opportunities. Along the way, we provided the executives leading the charge with timely market intelligence, insightful analysis, and seasoned advice to help them guide a promising new venture. We approached each engagement with an entrepreneurial mindset.

Our competitive edge was the ability to blend hands-on venturing experience with a keen awareness of business and technological trends that are reshaping the target market landscape. Whether we were advising a Fortune 500 or barebones start-up, we served as a venture catalyst; assisting new venture executives with highly focused and tailored strategic advisory expertise upon which to build a solid foundation for a high-growth business. We helped our clients set and achieve goals on key formation elements such as business model definition, corporate positioning, partnership strategies, valuation and fund raising.

In short, Smaby Group had the start-up experience and strategic resources to help get a new venture off the ground and out the door. And we leveraged our collective knowledge to instill a new venture with the competitive agility to safely pilot through the often treacherous early stages of growth.

In recent years, Smaby Group has scaled back its activities primarily to one-to-one strategic advice to non-profits,  as well as a limited number of litigation support and expert witness engagements.
