WHAT PEOPLE SAY
The team has been tremendously helpful in supporting us better develop our business model, define our strategy, and apply financial modelling technique in our business plan.
Our business was on the edge and we needed a team of experts to turn things around. I am very glad COA team was right on time and helped us restructure our operations and management.
As a founder, you deal with so many complexities. Things can get hard to understand. That is what we were facing. COA helped build our capacity, we are now better in what we do.
