Around the United States at any given time, thousands of companies are raising capital; some of those funds fuel growth and expansion and while other resources are earmarked for acquisitions and mergers. New sources of funding certainly can jumpstart next level growth, but nearly every single organization faces the same human capital challenges: how to identify and keep top performers; how to attract and grow new hires into the next generation of leaders; and in mergers how to create a learning organization that blends disparate cultures.
Two consulting industry veterans have decided to join forces to provide unique human capital-focused professional services to pre-money and post-money organizations and their investors. The firm, Project Halcyon, partners with most of their clients by taking a small ownership stake and offering ongoing consulting services that help clients achieve growth through people and teams.
“After nearly 15 years working with entrepreneurs in companies from startup to over $1 billion in revenue, I’m convinced that success does not come from having a great idea that turns into a great product or service. Instead, long lasting success relies on having a great team that works together to produce that great product or service and on leaders who excel at identifying, building and motivating those great teams,” said Lauren Fritsch.
Fritsch, based in New York City, brings to Project Halcyon over a decade of experience consulting with firms in fashion, technology, professional services, manufacturing and media. Whether her clients sell handbags or software, she realizes that people problems are universal and has created three paradigmatic systems to address leadership, sales, and management.
Lauren Zeien, based in Dallas, joins Fritsch at Project Halcyon. Zeien has consulted with a variety of firms in technology, consumer products and entertainment through her company Strategy Artists that was acquired in 2015 by Dallas-based firm Velocis. Zeien excels at leading teams to create systems and cultures that promote productivity and growth through strategic execution.
“We’ve worked with Lauren on several long term projects at our US subsidiary that resulted in an increase in sales, better morale and lower turnover. Moreover, our parent company adopted her approach for our global management team- her approach was spot on,” said Steven DeJong, President of Lohmann Technologies Corporation and its US subsidiaries.
Project Halcyon provides pre-money and post-money human capital assessments and consulting in all stages of the business life cycle for startups, venture capital, private equity and mergers and acquisitions. For more information visit: projecthalcyon.com or contact [email protected]
