Marlborough provides an integrated portfolio of transformational services that helps CEOs, boards, and management teams address the strategic challenges, operational dysfunction, and capitalization issues that create barriers to revenue and profit growth.

We also work with investors and venture capitalists to evaluate marginal investment opportunities and identify sale or merger opportunities. We use a proprietary methodology and a proven set of analytics, diagnostics, and development tools that help companies get up, get going, and get better.

Our partners are entrepreneurs who have founded companies, raised over $150M of capital in seed, growth, and mezzanine financings, had successful IPOs, and managed M&A processes from both the buy and sell sides.


Our founding partners are supported by a group of limited partners who extend our skill set, market focus, and geographic coverage. Our team manages client engagements across the U.S. and for companies in Europe and Israel that want to get there.

We deliver a series of business assessment services to benchmark your company against competitors. We identify what’s working and deliver an actionable plan to fix what’s not.

Business Assessment

This service dissects the business across a dozen domains ranging from high level Market Opportunity, Value Proposition and Exit Strategy through various detailed operating analyses including Product Strategy, Go-to-Market, Distribution Channels, Financial Plan and Capital Requirements. We analyze Current State versus Desired State across each domain and make detailed recommendations for achieving objectives.

Venture Financing

Our partners have raised dozens of rounds of venture financing across multiple companies. We develop and fine-tune our client’s strategy, value proposition, business plan, and corporate materials. We also identify the most appropriate list of potential investors and arrange introductions. 


We focus on implementing or fixing critical processes across strategy, product planning, sales and marketing, and operational finance.

Business Alignment

In the normal course of business, companies sometimes go astray. Getting costs and revenue into alignment can be a wrenching experience.  We deliver an unbiased and workable plan that will get the company back on track.

Business Reengineering

To implement a business alignment plan we identify the short-term priorities and then implement operational changes to preserve cash and focus on the most critical processes. As the company stabilizes, we reassess the business and create a restructuring plan that is in line with the market reality.


Marlborough provides full-time or part time CXO resources to lead your company to the next level. We also assist your organization in raising capital and identifying complementary products and services.

Interim Leadership

Regardless of their stage of growth, companies often experience a gap in corporate leadership. While the company begins the often-lengthy process of replacing members of the executive management team, we can provide interim leadership for CXO roles. 


We help you prepare for a liquidity event by tuning key operating metrics and uncovering strategic opportunities.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Many Marlborough clients undertake a merger or acquisition to expand their product line, available market, geographic coverage, or growth rate. We advise clients on potential partners, and develop a set of targets.
