PATCA for Startups

PATCA consultants have been serving Silicon Valley startups since our founding in 1975. Our consultants being startups in their own right, bring their skills and expertise, with their unique understanding of the startup milieu and culture. Jump right to the questionnaire here.

The Startup Concierge is PATCA’s newest complimentary offering for the startup community. An online form that allows startups to submit their business challenges and have a seasoned consultant follow up with a discovery phone call, allows PATCA to respond to the startup with an assessment offering an analysis of the challenge and a recommended course of action.

For those startups who are looking to staff a project, PATCA’s Post-a-Project which is available free to businesses is a great way to get started. PATCA consultants who are interested and qualified respond to these published projects, allowing startups a great way to access talent.

For startups looking to review a consultant data base before selecting a consultant, searching PATCA’s Consultant Directory is a great way to find expertise that fits their need.

You can help us understand your startup and your current challenge to building a thriving successful business by completing the form below to the best of your ability. Your answers will also help us get a handle on where you are in terms of building your startup, understand your vision with respect to your product(s), customer(s), market(s), business model, your concerns as well as anticipated next steps. We understand how busy you are, so we've tried to stick with essential questions. We welcome your input at this important moment in building your business.

Feel free to input 'N/A' (not applicable) next to questions which you aren't able to or aren't interested in answering, or which are simply not applicable to your business. If you feel there is another qualified person in your organization to answer these questions, please let us know who to contact for that information.

Once you submit your input, we will contact you to schedule a follow up phone call to complete the discovery process. We will happily walk you through the following 'Startup Discovery Questionnaire' by phone if you prefer, or you can email any questions to
