How We Do Our Work
Our first step is to meet with you, ask questions and listen, listen, listen. Our goal is to learn as much as possible about your organization’s needs. This is also a chance for us to get acquainted and identify your goals and aspirations. We can then begin to identify the best possible ways for ABD Ventures to meet your needs.
This step involves a more comprehensive discussion of the most value-added ABD Ventures services and products from which your organization would benefit. You will select a combination of board, staff and funders you would like for us to interview as part of making an assessment of your organization’s needs. ABD does not determine who this group shall be; but instead uses a customized evaluation tools to assess organizational strengths from which to build as well as identify challenges your organization needs to address.
Workplan & Services Agreement:
Based on a combination of what we’ve learned from you and your team, we will present a workplan, which will include deliverables, timeline and service fees.
Pending approval of a workplan and upon intitation of a services agreement, ABD Ventures will begin work. We oversee the entire process to insure that the work is of the highest quality.
