For decades, large companies have been wary of corporate venturing. So why are more and more smart companies going VC to find their next breakthroughs? With corporate R&D units under pressure to focus on a narrow range of projects, companies often lack a good way to sniff out competitive threats beyond their main areas of expertise.

Pricing IT Services: A Complete Guide

Published By: ConnectWise     Published Date: Aug 22, 2019
There is no easy way to establish the “going rate” for comparable services, because all services are differentiated by other forces, such as individual processes, brand equity, and features. If you’re going to price your services simply based on the competition, you’d better ensure you’re making an exact apples-to-apples comparison, which is easier said than done and not something we recommend. Consider instead, a model where your pricing is based on how much it truly costs you to perform one hour of service. In this eBook, we show you how to calculate your full hourly overhead burden–so you can set the right price for your IT services.
