Consulting for Indie Developers
Business Consulting for Indie Developers
Starting a new business presents a lot of exciting challenges as it is. But indie developers have extra quirks that a more traditional kind of business just doesn’t face when it comes to cash flows, location of dev team members, IP ownership, growing a fanbase, and so on.
Whether you are just getting the wheels in motion to formalize your game studio into a real company or you’re having a hard time with business decision-making and need help with short-term and long-term strategies, I can lend an ear for an hour or two. If you’re also in need of more formal documents like business plans as a result of trying to get traditional or alternative funding, I’d be happy to use my financial background to help you out whether your goal is growth or attaining financial freedom.
