Sector Research - what's now and what's next
While consulting for Battery Ventures, investment opportunities in Asia were many, perhaps too many. B-T helped narrow them to only the few sectors in India that offered growth projections which met their exceptional requirements. Often companies are presented with multiple opportunities for growth, but may be capable of executing on only one or two in a single year. Being able to isolate and prioritize the most profitable possibilities can be the difference between achieving annual targets, or coming up short. Burton-Taylor helps companies use detailed, thorough and focused Market Intelligence to clearly understand where to grow now and where to go next.
