I would like to....
Make my company more innovative
It is a tough challenge to maintain the level of successful innovation. We can help.
Ensure my company thrives past the recession
Having successfully navigated through a difficult economy, now to prepare for Brexit and a strong future.
Find customers & offer them the right products
The most obvious, but sometimes the hardest task for a business, whether a fresh startup or a veteran.
Protect & exploit my Intellectual Property
Often your most valuable asset, how do you protect it & how do you make the most of it?
Create an effective team
Regardless of the product or service, most companies are about people, people working together.
Improve my company culture
A company is a group of people working together to a common goal. However they are all individuals and need nurturing.
Start a new company
The most enjoyable, but one of the most challenging tasks to set yourself if you are so inclined. We are here to help.
Develop my invention
Having an idea for a new product or service is exciting. However it is only the first tiny step to seeing it realised and used by others.
Consulting Services for Complete Business Health
Think of Tinnoco as the wingman for your business. All commercial enterprises need to make money. This requires a structure to enable it, people to do the work and customers to want the end result. A business is usually created from an innovative spark - a realisation that there is a product or service that would have a market if available. Tinnoco can help not only on the long journey from concept to commercialisation, but also in the brainstorming and ideation stages to come up with the concept in the first place. However innovation cannot stop at this point. The difficulty is that there are many distractions in growing a company and it is easy to lose innovation as a company grows or is forced to change by external circumstances such as competition, the economy, or even simply its own growth. Tinnoco offers the key services fundamentally required by most companies - innovation for the product/service and coaching/mentoring for the managers and staff together with development of a real understanding of the customer to enable the company to develop winning products and services to cater for that often unarticulated need.

Misleading sayings Regardless of the origin of the saying “the more I practice, the luckier I get” or “the harder I work, the luckier I get” I truly hate it. Whether it is a modern sound-bite or a butchery of ancient proverb, I wholeheartedly refute it. Don’t use it in your start-up. Why? Well for[…]
I wonder if anyone didn’t agree Yesterday I talked about the overriding importance of having a team when you are creating and growing your start-up. Many people might think the team is, at the very most, the second or third most important thing. I know lots of people who know for certain, as far as they[…]
