Bring your business to the next stage

At Gratitude, we believe in diamonds in the rough. If you have already started a business but would like to bring it to the next stage, you have come to the right place.

We recognise that 1 in 10 businesses fail and most may have failed because they may not executed it well, lack the right contacts or networks. There are many considerations and to-dos when you are running a business and no man is an island.

The Gratitude team comprises experienced entrepreneurs and working professionals who have spent more than 10,000 hours each in our area of expertise. We will be able to help you refine your business, address potential gaps, grow and convert leads, raise angel/ seed funding and even make hires — All to bring your business to greater heights.

To start improving your business, simply book a 15-min call with us. Over the call, we will assess your idea and share the gaps that you need to address in order to make it even better. It is that simple.

What Our Customers Say

“The team at Gratitude provided great feedback on my investor deck as well as helped me understand how investors really think. They gave me much needed insight on pitching to investors and fundraising.”

Theodoric Chew, Co-founder,

“I was fundraising for months until I got help from Elise. I managed to raise my pre Series A funding led by a well known Silicon Valley VC – through the investor introductions made.
Elise spent time with me to understand our business and offering, and helped plug us into the right tech / VC ecosystem.”

Dennis Susay, CEO, Gmedes

“I’ve been working with Elise and her team at Gratitude for a few weeks. They helped me to identify key metrics for product success as well as provided useful insights on how to better manage my runway and prepare for fundraising. Their initiative to match mentors with startup mentees is also a great way for us to get more support over the challenging times.”

Xinyan, Founder, Yoripe

  2. Is Gratitude selective towards the kind of companies you support?

    • We operate with professionalism and your business information will be treated as highly confidential.
  5. What happens during the 15-min call?

  6. What happens after the call?
    • It depends on you. If you want to start addressing your gaps and create a viable business, work with us on the next steps. We generally prefer to work with ‘coachable’ entrepreneurs who hustle.
  7. Do you charge for the subsequent calls/ meetings?
    • After the first call, if you wish to work with us further, we will create a step by step plan to help you improve your business over a period of 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month or more. We usually work as partners and take advisor shares but it depends on the depth of engagement. The duration of our support is up to you and depends on the stage of your business. Some people have already started working on their business for a while and have some customers so we may need to work with them only on something specific, such as preparing for fundraising. Some are only at an earlier stage and they may work with us over a longer period.
