Business Development Service (BDS) provider
EXIT Group as business development service (BDS) provider firm, invests in and helps small and medium-size companies grow in the initial stages of their development. A major difference between a BDS firm and a venture capital fund is that BDSs allow smaller, non-accredited investors to invest in startup companies. Some of the reasons why BDSs became popular is because they provide permanent capital to companies, allow investments by the general public and take advantage of financing other companies with a wide variety of sources, such as equity, debt and hybrid financial instruments.
Business Development is simply about pursuing opportunities for long-term growth from customers, markets, and relationships. It comprises a number of tasks and processes generally aiming at developing and implementing growth opportunities within and between organizations. Sounds simple enough; While Business Development may still mean many different things to many different organizations, at it’s core we believe it is focused on 3 domains:
- Customers: Find new ones and extract more value from current ones.
- Markets: Figure out where new customers “live” (both geographically and in terms of “buying mindset“) and find a way to reach them.
- Relationships: Build and leverage relationships founded on trust and integrity to facilitate opportunities.
