Developing the right organization is crucial to the success of young companies.
UTV is dedicated to providing the resources entrepreneurs need to meet this challenge.
By getting in at ground level, we help entrepreneurs build an organization that
is better equipped to respond to the changes and challenges that will occur throughout
the company's lifecycle.
UTV is the first venture firm in the US to offer value-added services in Organizational
Development because we believe that building an organization the right way from
day one is the right thing to do - for successful companies and outstanding returns
to our investors.
Leading a start-up to success is not an easy task, and no one person can accomplish
it alone. This means that selecting and recruiting the best possible management
team is imperative to setting and accomplishing the goals of the company. UTV
knows that deciding who these corner stone individuals will be is a daunting and
time-consuming experience; One that can be made easier with the help of the extensive
recruiting services UTV offers its portfolio companies.
Through our recruiting services, we contribute to the business success of our
companies by assisting in the selection, recruitment, training and retention of
top quality employees. This means taking on the tedious tasks of sorting through
resumes, interviewing potential candidates, researching available workshops and
courses, building seminars and making sure that all of our companies are continuously
up-to-date regarding acceptable compensation and benefits standards.
As we view Recruitment Management as one of our top-priority services, we not
only provide basic Human Resource assistance to start-ups, but also offer entrepreneurs
all the assistance needed to build an employee base that has relevant expertise,
believes in the potential of the company and will lead the venture to its success.

Effective marketing is as important as a great product or innovative technology,
and it is essential to business success. UTV marketing professionals advise entrepreneurs
on how to focus on their customers and deliver promotions and product information
to relevant customers.
Young companies need to build their marketing organization, budget sufficient
funds, and define a roadmap of activities that will advance the company to the

experience and build a strong brand.
