Who We Are:
Venture Strategy Solutions at Berkeley is a student-run strategy consulting group that serves start-ups and growth clients. In addition to having a unique client focus, Venture Strategy Solutions differentiates itself through a results-oriented consulting mindset, measuring our success through the success of our clients.
The mission of Venture Strategy Solutions (VSS) is to provide strategic consulting services for start-ups and growth-phase companies. As a result of:
- Highly-selective recruiting
- Rigorous internal training
- Frequent client interaction
Our project teams thoroughly understand our client needs and are fully capable of creating clear, implementable recommendations to address those needs.
Our clients recognize an opportunity for growth or improvement and want VSS to figure out ways to capitalize on these opportunities. As start-ups and growth-phase companies, our clients are able to act decisively upon our recommendations. We design implementable solutions for our clients that are more than just a list of “best practices.” Feasibility, focus, and prioritization guide our recommendations.
