Idea

To provide businesses expert business consulting at a time when revenue in-flows are scarce and the guidance in uncharted territory is critical - for free for May & June 2020. As a startup, we also then offer our full service offering at competitive rates, for clients who want more.

The Azeelo network consists of strategic partners with specialized skills in HR Management, senior software development & sales strategy.

Current Status

Azeelo Digital is a week away from official launch (azeelodigital.com). Scheduled launch is 11 May.

We have used our own resources to build this business remotely and during COVID-19 lockdown, and despite these challenges, we have built a business that is ready to enter the market.

Market

Businesses in industries 15 years or older.

Problem or Opportunity

The business leaders of today are challenged with remaining relevant and realigning business goals in line with the forced requirements of the great lockdown to be digital-ready. With combined commercial experience of over 50 years, Azeelo Digital can help fill the gap of technical knowledge and experience in successfully transforming businesses digitally. We bring with our experience, a fresh and objective view to the business and our goals are to help tackle digital transformation so that organisations can get on with their day-to-day business.

Competitors

The major competition here, are the big consulting firms like PWC, Accenture, Deloitte etc.
Even globally, while the McKinseys of the world enjoy market share, we believe there is a niche market made up of (some big, )medium & micro-enterprises who could use the combined industry expertise Azeelo has, to make more informed business decisions that lead to the growth they really want.

Advantages or differentiators

As a team of techies who have run businesses and consulting businesses ourselves, we are uniquely positioned to drive the development of a platform that will enhance and revolutionise this entire industry.

Ehimen and Josephine have experience at very senior positions in one of the most sophisticated economies in the world.

Finance

Ours is a consulting model, billing at a daily rate unless otherwise negotiated on a project.

Business model

The difference in our consulting is that we are in the process of building a platform which will do Business Function Resourcing as a Service. This will enable the digital consultancy to scale business at a phenomenal rate, also giving consumers direct access to build up startups of their own, deliver projects or diagnose project or operational issues.

Money will be spent on

Operational expenses of delivering the service to clients who respond to our launch communication.
These include salaries for the core team, hiring, contracts, fees & equipment where needed for extended team which will be fleshed out on demand.
