Why do I need Startup Sleuth? Can’t I Just Google/Pay Someone $5/Get My Neighbor’s Computer Whiz Nephew to Do It For Free?

Of course you could do any of those things. I love that there are so many options out there! But $5 researchers probably don’t have access to the resources I have access to. Google can’t analyze and synthesize and prioritize info like I can. Your neighbor’s nephew might not know anything about turning info into actionable insights.

What you need to know is this:

You don’t have a “good enough” business, idea, product, or service, so why would you rely on “good enough” research?

Startup Sleuth isn't like those “good enough” options.

If you hire me to find out what the risks are in your industry, I won’t just plug “YOUR INDUSTRY + RISKS” into Google. I’ll be looking at annual reports and 10-Ks, analysts' forecasts, news coverage for trending topics, reports on tangential and related industries. I’ll be listening to social media. I’ll be scouring the deep and invisible web. I’ll be looking behind paywalls and in databases that aren’t indexed or reachable by Google or any other search engine. And when I’m done with that? I won’t just dump it all into a document for you to wade through. I’ll analyze and summarize and give you a final product that you can actually use. I don’t just regurgitate links and facts or recycle someone else’s research.

Librarian + Entrepreneur = Information Entrepreneur

When you work with me, you get the experience, understanding, and support of a fellow entrepreneur combined with the power of the world’s best search engine: a librarian! Combine that with strategic research and creative investigative techniques and you have a research ally dedicated to gathering evidence, tracking down clues, and solving the mysteries holding you back all so you can work smarter, build smarter, and start smarter.

Google Is Not A Synonym For Research

Hey, I think Google is a great tool. I use it every single day. But it shouldn’t be a synonym for research. There are a world of resources out there that Google will never lead you to. But do you know who can lead you to those resources? I can.

Research isn’t just finding. The real magic happens after you find the info you’re looking for. Then it’s time for synthesizing, analyzing, distilling. All the -ings that make the info you need usable and actionable and more than pages of TL;DR.

Let me take care of your research needs using the most appropriate resources for your project. Resources you might not even be aware of. And you know what? You don’t have to be aware of them. That’s my job. You don’t need another thing to worry about. Curious about what these resources might be? Take a look at this sample list. 

Who Doesn’t Want To Save Time And Money?

This is a big one and I bet you can relate to it. I’m talking about the big bad issues of TIME and MONEY. Do you have the time to sift through pages of search results to find the essential details? Do you have the patience to vet and verify each and every stat you find? Do you have the time or inclination to track down bits and pieces of information from multiple sources and then put it together in a format that is most usable for you or your team? Do you want to take money you could be spending on starting or growing your business and spend it on costly research databases instead?

Working with me will save you time and money. Time and money you can spend on building and growing and getting stuff done.

If you want to build the smartest business, products, or ideas possible with the most up-to-date insights and intelligence, let’s work together.

If you value your work you should value the information you build that work upon. Because I guarantee you if the information isn’t worth much to you, it’ll be worth even less to the person you hire. Is that a risk you’re really willing to take?

Are you ready to make one of the best investments you’ll ever make? Are you ready to get started and build something smart and not at all “good enough”?

Work with me and say enough to “good enough” and yes to smart sleuthing.
