Launch your Strategic Initiative

Whether you’re a business, industry association, community organization, or academic institution, we can help you validate, articulate, and advance your unique project or strategic initiative. From feasibility analysis and ecosystem mapping to government and stakeholder relations, Stiletto has the full suite of services to help you develop a shared vision, bring clarity to roles and responsibilities, and create a clear plan to leverage your assets.

Concept Development & Business Plan

When you’re starting a new project or plan, you need a solid foundation to build on and a clear plan to set your course. From research and discovery to implementation, we help flesh out your concept and bring clarity and strategy to your initiative. We provide plans that include market intelligence based on in-depth primary and secondary research, opportunity analysis including an assessment of competitors, and detailed financial and marketing components to help you position your initiative.

Program Development

Want to build value for your organization and your community? Whether you are considering a new program to support companies at the start-up to scale-up stages, or you want to enhance your workforce talent development and pipeline, we can help. Stiletto works with your team to develop a customized program (cohort or continuous intake models) for your target audience groups. We start with a landscape scan to understand exemplary jurisdictions and existing programs in locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. From there, we develop the curriculum and prepare a go-to-market plan to launch your program(s). Our program experience includes programs for accelerators, exporting, new market entry, future of work, succession planning, and experiential learning.

Feasibility Assessment

Build support for your new initiative by establishing its potential for long-term success. Our feasibility plan will take a deep dive into the potential market for your product or service and will give a detailed assessment of financial opportunities and risks to consider as you plan your next steps.

Go-To-Market Plans

Get a clear picture of your marketplace and maximize your competitive advantage with a research-backed plan. Stiletto’s custom strategies include market intelligence, comparative analysis, market expansion plans, and detailed implementation roadmaps. We help you focus your sales and marketing activities and give you the tools to start implementing.

Funding Support

We have worked with more than 200 companies and communities and closed more than $350 million in deals, grants, and new revenue opportunities on behalf of our clients. We provide end-to-end support, including identifying funding opportunities, representing clients at meetings with funders and government organizations, writing proposals and grant applications, and developing marketing and communication materials and toolkits.
