Great idea, but is it worth £500,000?

Ideas are brilliant, right? Around us there are those that could change a business, disrupt a sector, or create a whole new industry, but then again, the failures litter the carpets: maybe they came too soon, maybe they weren't developed well enough, or perhaps they just weren't that brilliant after all.

You might have a nose for business potential, but understanding the strength of a technology idea, the team behind it or their plan to develop it also requires in-depth, cross-architectural knowledge. If you're evaluating a candidate for investment you need someone with the technical nous to get under its skin - and the business expertise to understand it in context.

At Red River we work as your partner, bringing expert understanding of the technology behind business concepts and providing invaluable insight into the strength of technical propositions or business models. If you need help in identifying game-changers, polishing rough diamonds or deciding whether to walk away, call us.
