|A small Dutch software company hired Oranjeveld Partners to initiate commercial activities in the Netherlands. We implemented a local market research and advised on a effective marketing approach aimed at the Dutch market.

Due to the international expansion, the company grows significantly from seven to twenty-five employees. The CEO of the firm feels insufficiently equipped with his current style of management. Oranjeveld Partners provides the CEO with weekly business coaching. Our consultant introduces a 360-degree feedback methodology. This ''multi-source feedback" is feedback that comes from all around an employee. Feedback is provided by subordinates, peers, and supervisors. It includes a self-assessment and feedback from external sources such as customers, suppliers and other interested stakeholders. The results from 360-degree feedback are used by the CEO to plan his training and development. As a result of the coaching the CEO succeeds in leading the organization effectively into the next stage of grow.
A boutique venture capital fund in Europe is looking for interesting, sound ventures with outstanding innovative technology. The fund is especially interested in Israeli seed-stage technology companies in the expanding telecommunication, security, and software sectors. Oranjeveld Partners provides the fund with a continuously deal flow of early-stage Israeli technology startups that will benefit strongly from its co-investment, relocation, and incubation model devoted to securing and improving their access and use of the European market and European investors.
