How Retained Platform Advisory Works
Large, traditional enterprises can build or buy their own platform businesses. For the latter, C-suites need a platform advisor who can provide input internally and also gather information externally without revealing the client’s name to tip off the market. Post acquisition, the platform entity needs help integrating with the core linear business and scaling key initiatives in a short period of time to make the deal successful.
On a monthly and weekly basis, Applico provides strategic sessions with client C-suites to help resolve big roadblocks to platform success. Applico’s advisory teams are comprised of proven operators and entrepreneurs who have built, scaled and exited platforms before.
In parallel, Applico’s Principals interface with the external community of platforms, consumers, producers and key partners. Our team’s prior experience with platforms provides access to key decision-makers in the tech world without disclosing the client’s intentions. Principals can help facilitate deals and partnerships and provide market insight at the C-suite level.
