    United States - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 7

    Always Focused on & Striving to: 1. Solve Problems People Haven't Yet Predicted- in New Ways 2. Imagine New Things 2-5 years Out 3. Connect People who need to Be Connected into new Organisms to Perform Unique Actions I’m Ren. A "dual-brainer" with over a decade of both deep business experience, and creative design & development. 1. Focused in-depth analysis of industry, market, competitor, intellectual property, and consumer trending for analysis & synthesis for professional business planning from finance to operations to marketing. To know exactly where you should go and how. 2. Professional, standout graphic and new product design and development for brand and company enhancement and market differentiation. To be where your competitors can’t get and going beyond the plan. -media: http://renmoulton.net/press-summary.html -some companies I've worked for: www.linkedin.com/in/renmoulton/ -innovation work at www.theeggdesign.com. Background I’m a trained business strategist, planner & marketer from the globally top ranked entrepreneurship MBA (for a decade running). I also have over a decade experience with start-ups and fast growth companies from inside (as founder) and outside (as consultant) and have created the equity selling tools for them (succeeding in 8-9 figure raises). I’m interested in passing on this learning to other young companies with a great vision because… it’s exciting. I ‘m also a trained product designer, developer, graphic designer and copywriter, with over a decade in brand design & development (Goodby Silverstein & Partners- Porsche, Starbucks, HP), and now in my second decade -concept to shelf on with super premium to mainstream innovative products. From hardware to soft goods. I also, uniquely, have spent several years studying and implementing in IP location and capture practices (and have learned from some of the best, though that learning was not cheap!) Patenting (design to utility), trademarking, copyrighting. Over the last year more deeply into the nascent (& idiosyncratic) software patenting process. I can provide a “Menu of services”, from business planning to creative (brand and product development). Complete Business Planing Average time for completion from scratch: 1 week (less with base plan elements in place). Understanding the high speed, low cost needs of early stage companies, with a 20 minute phone call, and completion of 1 page questionnaire, I deliver a 20-40 page (with graphs and financials) customized business plan. Other add-ons/ options... Additional Fundraising Tools Average time for completion: 3 days I can then do full presentation deck and convert the new executive summary into a contemporary designed teaser. In this process, I can also write new taglines, high concept items, even detail design some of the brand elements. New Tools for Growth. (time dependent on desired scope/depth). At this point, we’ll have a good understanding of the details that make your company remarkable and different, and all the background to be able without paying for weeks of “discovery”. Here I can do everything from designing marketing assets to even coming up with new products (from unique functions to concept design for your use, even down to packaging design and engineering BOMs/etc). If you need a professional well designed and thought out business plan with everything from marketing to financial planning, I can do that. If you need to go beyond into front end design (2D/3D) with brand or new product, I love doing that as well. Your need is my driver. Best, Ren
