Digital Transformation Consulting
- Faced with shifting demand patterns, declining profitability, and depleting cash reserves, Partners know they need to adapt if they wish to survive. Quickly.

Business Valuations & Offering Memorandums
- For Microsoft Partners pursuing focused Cloud growth strategies, external funding is often pivotal to success. Whether seeking this funding from private equity, venture capitalists, increased operating lines of credit, or through some form of merger or acquisition, the current business must be valued and a viable business plan developed. CloudSpeed can help ensure appropriate providers of capital have what they need to make the required investments, and the Partner secure needed capital.
Merger & Acquisition Consulting
- Potential purchasers of Microsoft Partners often have limited insight into their core value and profitability, and risk overpaying for an acquisition. Conversely, Microsoft Partners wishing to sell their businesses often do not fully understand how a potential purchaser truly values their business, and so risk settling for less than they could. CloudSpeed reduces the risk for either party, by performing due diligence on company valuations, and helping shape post-acquisition value creation strategy.
