Getting Started with a “Phase Zero”

The first step in our process of working with new clients is to have a 1-2 hour Phase Zero discovery meeting where our 1 Degree Consulting team talks with the client on where they are in the “cannabiz” road map, and their future goals. This allows us to discuss details with a client on the steps that need to be taken in order to reach their final goals. Our team is well versed on regulations in local permitting and state licensing, and we are confident that clients will benefit from this very comprehensive meeting.

What is a “Phase Zero”?

When a potential client is looking for consulting advice, 1 Degree Consulting, a division of Humboldt Green LLC, finds that an introductory discovery meeting (Phase Zero) can make for the most effective use of our resources. More importantly, this ensures that the client receives the most value.

In a Phase Zero, a core 1 Degree Consulting team is matched with the client to scope the proposed project(s). For a flat fee, this 1-2 hour session focuses on workflow and pinpoints best use of capital, and return on investment. 1 Degree Consulting, a division of Humboldt Green LLC, has found that many times clients are not even sure which questions to ask, so we have broken down the process into very basic steps and allowed time to explain clearly within this first consultation. In this session, we methodically build a road map that will guide each phase of work, deliverables and timing. By walking through each phase, the client has a direct hand in the overall work scope and can influence the plan direction whenever possible.

1 Degree Consulting, a division of Humboldt Green LLC, provides our clients with access to a variety of resources. Our significant network of affiliates have a wide range of expertise, and years of broad experience in the field. This broad range of experience and expertise is congruent with the cannabis industry as well as other affiliated industries. 1 Degree Consulting, a division of Humboldt Green LLC, prides itself in transparency and making our clients aware of all resources that we can bring to the table. Phase Zero provides an opportunity for Humboldt Green to customize products and services for each client to get optimal value for their budget.

At the end of this 1-2 hour session, each client will have a significant amount of product, market, and business insight, but they will also have a clear understanding of each phase of the project. The strength of this approach is that our clients can see the outline of the entire roadmap in order to avoid wasted labor and efforts. Through this process, hidden opportunities are often revealed that can shift a project into another gear if necessary.

1 Degree Consulting is 1º From All Things Green.

Phase Zero sessions are $420 each ($200 deposit, check cash or money order, is required in advance of  scheduling the meeting). We believe you will find this money well spent as we co-discover where you are on the bigger road map and how to most effectively reach your destination.
