For clients with existing web developers and for clients who sub-contract freelance web development, we offer web development consultancy and can act as an intermediary between you and your web developer. If your are not well-versed in search engine optimization, database design, and frontend & backend coding, we advise you to speak with us before commissioning web development work. In addition to doing web develoment or matching you with an appropriate web developer, we perform web systems architecture and web developement quality assurance.
For clients with existing websites or investors purchasing a business with an online component we are the nerds you need. We review the code and data structures of the web system in question. We write comprehensive reports that explain in layman’s (and in technical terms) the advantages and the limitations of your current website or mobile application. We provide actionable advice that ChartDeck or your current web development team can carry out. We estimate costs of future upgrades and major changes to your website. We advise you on the eligibility of software patents, trademarks, service marks, and copyrights.
We maximize the value of your business when you go to sell it or raise funding by valuing its online and software components. We perform due diligence on your websites, apps, and databases and compare them to those of your competitors. We will write pitches, make pitch videos, make presentations, prepare investment memoranda and edit (or develop) a comprehensive business plan to help you earn top dollar or minimize equity dilution when you sell your business or raise capital. In addition, we are willing to take an active role in the sales or funding process, meaning that we will circulate your investment memoranda amongst appropriate angel investors, venture capitalists, and boutique capital providers or we will prepare and submit effective crowdfunding pitches to the most appropriate crowdfunding platforms. We will be your best advocates until money is raised or your bussiness is sold.
*Chartdeck is not a broker-dealer. We strictly provide supplemental business development materials and services. We cannot quote prices to investors until we are hired by you as an independent sub-contractor.
