A note from our founder
Earlier in my business career I had an attitude of never asking for help. I figured, if I worked hard enough on a problem, I would be able to sort it out for myself… I felt I would be less of a leader if I admitted that I didn’t have all the answers. Additionally, I didn’t want to owe anyone.
Obviously, this was a huge mistake and wrong thinking in almost every way. As a direct consequence, I missed opportunities and some of my ventures did not grow as fast as they could have… I also had a couple of business failures which, at the time, was devastating.
Having a coach, mentor, advisor, expert consultant or better still, all of these, dramatically increases the chance of success in business and in life. I think the penny finally dropped somewhere in my mid-thirties and it transformed my thinking and business success.
I still have business advisors. It is great to have someone independent of the day-to-day issues that I can test my ideas with.
CoAmp was founded to offer an experienced resource to other business owners, because I have learned a lot about creating a successful business over the last 25 or so years. If we can help you to avoid some of the mistakes I’ve made and introduce you to some of the thinking, process and hacks we’ve developed to help you innovate and fast-track your business goals, I think you’d agree, you’ll win.
In fact, coming up with or facilitating innovative and practical solutions to business problems is what I love to do, so it’s a win-win!
The first step is often the hardest. Finding someone you trust and feel comfortable sharing your goals, dreams and roadblocks with. That’s why we prefer to set up an initial free private Q&A to see if we’re the right fit and if we can identify some quick wins.
What do you have to lose!

HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR CLIENTS
When I heard he was starting his own Startup advisory, I asked Graham to help us establish our go-to-market plan and help us ensure the new RUNWAY BUY ‘Platform Development Plan’ was solid.
Graham has been able to add more value than I originally expected. He has:
- Created our pitch script, pitch deck, pitching process and fine-tuned our information documents to raise the Seed Investment Funds we need to develop the RUNWAY BUY Platform
- Been involved in the pitching process with all potential investors
- Given invaluable advice around team structure and team growth strategies
- Created a comprehensive financial forecast model allowing us to quickly test different funding, pricing, revenue and cash-flow scenarios
- Added many practical and innovative features into our platform specifications and overall value offering
- Helped us finalise our ‘must-have’ feature set for development of our initial MVP
- Managed the relationship with our Development Partners
We would not be as advanced as we currently are without Graham’s advice and input. I have asked Graham to come on as a permanent member on our Board of Directors. (He has accepted) Marc Palmer
