Leading a start-up is exciting and challenging. You’ve got a great idea and an initial team, but you don’t have the ability to hire full-time experts in all the areas you need. Experienced Kopidion team members can help fill this gap by serving as advisors.
The typical model is one to two days a month of high impact help, which keeps costs low for the expertise you gain. We can serve as personal resources for the founder(s) and, if desired, interact with various members of your team.
We have deep experience in many areas of security from visualization and interface design to reverse engineering, analytic development, and network traffic analysis, as well as business aspects of security product development, sales, marketing, customer success, and VC engagement. We are security researchers and technologists, but have also led large organizations, managed multi-million dollar budgets, and can help you communicate better with potential customers and investors.
We’d like to see you succeed. Contact us if you want to have an initial discussion.
Making an investment in a young cybersecurity company is high risk and potentially high payoff proposition. Kopidion can help inform your investment decision.
We focus on Seed and Series A rounds of investment, but are also happy to assist pre-seed investors. The level of depth is up to you. We typically conduct two levels of analysis. A quick assessment as you evaluate potential candidates entering your pipeline and a deeper due diligence look if you are seriously considering an investment.
We’ve developed a reliable system of metrics and assessment criteria to quickly and effectively analyze a potential investment at the level of depth you prefer. We look at such factors as:
Kopidion team members have experience in all sides of the security start-up equation, We’ve lived the start-up life ourselves, coached founders, and advised VCs. This rare combination gives us the ability to do the job right.
The failure rate of the typical start-up is high. Kopidion will help improve the odds of a high-payoff investment. We’ll analyze the company, meet with the founders, evaluate the technology, and give you an honest appraisal of potential risks and rewards quickly and effectively.
