Business planning and marketing & sales are the two functions that account for the vast majority of all organizational failures – for businesses, government agencies, technology transfer organizations, and non-profits alike. A lack of discipline in the first function invariably results in misguided efforts in the latter function. Our team undertakes strategic planning assignments for organizations that need a roadmap to get where they want to be. From concept to capital. From R&D environment to market validation. IP strategy. Market deployment. Product life cycle management.
Our clients have included Industry Canada, the National Research Council of Canada, the Department of Foreign Affairs & International Trade Canada, Agriculture & AgriFood Canada, CapitalRoad Foundation, and the Toronto Stock Exchange (TMX Group). Operating at the intersection of high growth technology companies and the private equity community, the firm is dedicated exclusively to emerging, technology based industries. Critical Path Group has earned trusted advisor status with clients from start-up entrepreneurs to federal government departments. We work closely with the vast majority of active venture capital firms in Canada and many in the United States and Europe.
