Many enterprises, in their early stage of development, do not have adequate experience or resources to operate their business satisfactorily.
On the other hand, the knowledge, experience and networks of many retired and semi-retired professional/executives are underutilized.
Our primary objective is to help early stage enterprises develop and realize their business plans by mobilizing the knowledge, experience and networks of the retired and semi- retired professional/executives. By utilizing the resources of the retired/semi-retired executives, we can deliver quality services at an affordable price.
