TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --Edison Avenue launches new service line providing virtual Corporate Development Officer services.Organic business revenue growth is not enough; companies need a strategic growth plan in today's tepid economy.

As Sun Tzu said in his ancient bookThe Art of War,"Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."

Traditional sales and marketing generated sales are very important to a business's health, but it's no longer enough to remain viable in many industries. Businesses today face the triple vice of rapid technological advancement, talent wars and increasing competition.It's true that companies must grow or die - there is forward or backward, but nostanding still for any business.

This new Edison Avenue service is particularly relevant inmaturing industries when the demand for products or services has stagnated.Also, companies suffering fromthe law of large numbers, where the revenue base is substantial and generating high percentage growth is difficult.Psychological self-protection can also take holdas a company gets larger, creating morepressure to preserve the core businessand less willingness toinnovate and take risks. Each of these conditions can pose a threat to the long-term health of a company.

Most companies do not adequately understand how to address the 3B business growth dilemma Build Buy Borrow.The Buy reference acquiring another business and Borrow is strategic alliances, licensing and other leveraged relationships.

This function/position usually reports to the CEO and leads strategic growth including: M&A, Joint Ventures, Capability Acquisition, and Licensing/Franchising to exponentially grow business sales beyond the limits of traditional organic sales growth.

The financial fruits of this role and function can be incredible.

This role is often the "secret ingredient" that private equity firms deploy to triple or quadruple the value of the companies they acquire. Edward Valaitis said: "Why leave all the upside on the table for the investors that may acquire your business one day?"
