The client was a privately backed entrepreneur looking to launch a dietary supplement product. Due to strong personal connections, the product research, development and manufacture were all based in the US, and it had been decided to launch the product in that country, both online and through selected retailers.
Orchard were originally brought in to prepare the initial business plan to support the launch of the product and the initial funding requirements. However, a change in the management team necessitated a closer ongoing involvement in setting up the required US banking, insurance and the outsourced accounting support.
Having worked flexibly with the client and US support team, across various timezones, to launch the product and deliver a stable US planning and accounting set up, Orchard managed their exit from the project to enable this US focussed business to move onto the next stage of growth.
