EXPERT STARTUP ADVISORS + CONSULTANTS

 Startup Advisors Who Help You Turn Your Idea Into a Business + Grow It

At Amplify, we have over a decade of experience helping start and grow companies (and doing it ourselves). We provide full spectrum start-up business advisory services via a cost-effective and results-orientated model.

Startup Advisors Focused On What Really Matters > Growing Your Business

While Amplify Law offers a sophisticated legal practice, our start up advisory services are much more than legal start up services - they are holistic business advisory services that provide expert support and true strategic value to help position your company to succeed in today's competitive environment.  We are focused on helping clients through the most important stages of the business growth cycle: conceptualization, pre-launch, launch and early growth.   Amplify provides advisory services focused on the core areas that affect start-ups: business, product/market, technology, intellectual property, finance/funding, legal and more.

 

Our goal is to provide cost-effective start-up advisory services that help early stage companies focus on what really matters while providing a network designed to offer scalable support as your company grows from an idea to revenue.

Silicon Valley Experience

Leveraging experience at the preeminent Silicon Valley law firm - Wilson, Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (WSGR) - and then both founding and advising start-ups and venture backed companies, our founder brings truly unique expertise to help your company grow.

From Idea to Execution to Revenue > Experience Matters

Amplify's Start Up Advisory services are designed to put your company at a competitive advantage.  By having sophisticated advisors on board early, you not only avoid many common mistakes and time drains but, more importantly, you can leverage strategic advice and industry expertise to help focus on what truly matters when growing your business.  

 

Most companies think they can't afford early stage advisors or professionals or that it's just not that important.   Only in hindsight do they realize that it was a mistake to not get sophisticated advisory help, and by then significant problems can have already arisen.  Amplify helps you focus on what really matters when you are building your business.

Focusing on your core product/service and deciding if its viable is the critical endeavor in any start-up scenario - however, it needs to the core pillar of a focused and strategic start-up effort that provides a strong foundation to scale your business quickly when you gain traction.  If you do not take some time to focus on other important matters, you will put yourself at a decided disadvantage.  Amplify can help you focus on all areas that are important to a start-up so that you aren't playing catch up or missing that critically important issue that might have changed the entire course of your business.

Clients Who Get It
