Our services

What we do


Destination. Every idea or project needs to find its sustainability. Whether it would be a social product or services, a mobile app, a wearable device, it must understand its way to the market, find users, customers, supporters, finance partners, a sales channel. This is what we do, from the very beginning.

  • Idea & project pre-assessment
  • Market Analysis
  • Business Model design
  • Business Plan design


Once you have a better vision of the destination, then it's turn to plan the trip, and first of all the people you need around you and a map.
Strategy is a matter of people, time, milestones and resources, and we'll help you to find and manage all of them.

  • Strategy Consulting
  • Team Competence building
  • Business Canvas design 
  • Resource Analysis
  • Time to market planning

Business Development

Now you have a destination and a map, so we can start to run. You will need to take control no every single aspect of your vehicle, check gas, tyres, sometimes turn lights on, brake a bit. Driving a company it's not easy as it's not the first time you run a vehicle, and we're plenty experienced to run companies.

  • B2B and B2C planning
  • Sales Channel building
  • Financial forecasting
  • Fundraising & Crowdfunding
  • Assets Management


Users and Customers needs to know you are on the road and find you easily, so you need to advertise, attract and get in contact with them in the easiest and cheaper way as possible. We adopt recent web and social tools and tecniques to run your compaigns in a smooth and easy way.
  • Marketing Strategy design
  • Social Media ecosystem
  • CRM planning
  • Google AdSense / AdWords
  • Web/Mobile UX design 

Work process

Step by step, take your time

Every type of business need the right time to think and grow: it's better not to run too fast, in order to possibly avoid mistakes and falls.  
Our approach is very straight, fare and does reflect the real life.

Step 1. Getting in love

Let's get in love. When we know each other first time, might happen that we feel good together, and we need to stay closer and understand real intent to prosecute.
Here is when we sign NDA, exchange our first hints, analyze your idea and this takes 2-5 weeks, where Partners and Associates will evaluate, with your help, if we may take seriously next step.

Step 2. Getting engaged

Once we liked and exchanged passion, usually we just to next step, and get engaged.
The engagement ring is a formal contract that binds parties for a period of time to build a relationship, a home, share resources and passion to build a life.
This process may take time, but it's full of things to do.

Step 3. Get married.... or not

The engagement may take (usually) months or even years, it depends ho how difficult is the common path (the market, the product/service), but during this time we both get results, we suffer together, we demonstrate to each other trust and respect.
Final result would be getting married (our cash+equity into your company) or consensual leave (we get paid, upon achieved results). 

Step 4. Divorce or Married for Life?

Nothing is for life, and may happen that even if we get married we set our divorce after a period of time or goal achievement, leaving you freedom to find your way.
Or maybe not, so the game is so funny that we may decide to go till the end.
It will depend on the full path designed above, and will happen with Social4Social, its Partners or Associates, or a mix of the 3.
