After spotting a gap in the Premium Spirits sector, the Sea Spyder team set out to build a dashboard that companies could make high value decisions with. Their aim is to offer an intuitive platform with actionable insights, allowing users to tap into data that helps them answer important industry questions.
Following multiple entrepreneur programs and gathering advice from various people, the team still didn’t feel confident in their next steps. To resolve this, Sea Spyder approached the TORCH Business Advisory Service to provide a roadmap. They wanted to understand the stages they’d need to go through to reach their end goal, examining recommendations across people, process, data, technology, and funding.
