What you get
There are very few firms that have a good understanding of both financial and software engineering. We'll understand the internals of the business and where it needs to go, and communicate that in a way that really works.
Get an understanding of the engineering problems a business might have through the eyes of an engineer who's managed multiple teams in the past.
The big 4 consulting firms are too expensive and the service is too formulaic. If you book me for a project you get my personal phone number, nothing less.

Step 1: Discovery
Let's sit down and have a conversation about what you're trying to achieve, no contracts. no nonsense. I can only take on a small number of clients, if you're going to be one of them I want to be sure that I'm the right person for you to achieve your outcome.
Step 2: Set our Gameplan
I don't like to nickel and dime people. Depending on what we're doing, we'll set a gameplan and some clear deliverables.
Step 3: Execution
I'm in the business of successful investment outcomes in technology companies. If we're doing due diligence, you'll have the information you need on your desk and multiple opportunities to talk through what I'm looking at and get your questions answered, jargon-free. I'll walk you through the good, the bad, and my recommendations. If you want help running the business I'm happy to discuss that as well.

Who I am
And how I can help you
We help shareholders get great outcomesMy name is David Awad, I've spent the last few years running engineering teams and working on investments for venture capital and private equity firms. I've gone through the lifecycle of entering a company post acquisition as an engineer and gotten the company to exit. I've joined venture-backed startups and been in the CTO's chair more than once. I've also done both sell-side and buy-side transactions.
We've done blockchain, mining, artificial intelligence, web development, and semiconductor fabrication. I like to think of that expertise as everything "electricity and up".
