Roland Gilbertson

Hi, I’m Roland Gilbertson, and my passion is “Motivating People To Get Results”.

As a Business Analyst, Venture Coach & Growth Marketing Consultant, I specialise in Business Modelling, Product Development and Digital Marketing – working with a select group of investors, (Angels and VC’s) to provide quality deal flow.


Over the last five years, I’ve coached some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs, Business owners and teams on a range of business operational topics and at various stages of their business’ cycle.

Why Work With Me

As your business coach/mentor, I will help you develop sustainable behaviour change that will empower you to drive your business forward and help you focus on the necessary parts of your business for success and growth. I will also challenge and hold you accountable for setting your own goals and seeing them through.

I help you engineer your business “idea(s)” to develop and validate products or services that have market traction and can scale to give your business the best chance of success and growth.


As always, whether you’re starting out or growing a business, I can help in several ways, from Venture Coaching, Strategy Development or Marketing for Growth, I can work closely with you and alongside your team to build processes that will impact your business in a positive way and help drive performance and grow your market share.


Over the past few years, I have been supporting many entrepreneurs through VC4A to take their business forward and reach fruition.

The methodology and approach I apply to my coaching practices are underpinned by a purpose and values – “To help Entrepreneurs, Business Founders and Owners, especially, across the African Continent, to;

  • Build products fit-for-market

“Creating Value” is built into our DNA and our programmes are designed to help and support businesses, founders and entrepreneurs to be more effective and continue  creating value and better customer success journeys.


My expertise in working with investors and relationships with portfolio investors puts me at an advantage when it comes to preparing businesses for Investment opportunities – helping founders, entrepreneurs and business owners create convincing business models and plans backed by validated market data and brand assets/collateral that can be used to demonstrate the business viability, revenue potential and valuable market insights to expose trends and highlight profitability areas for growth.

6 Steps to Product/Service Validation

One of the most expensive mistakes that Entrepreneurs or businesses make is developing products that customers don’t want.

To mitigate this risk, most successful businesses have developed processes in place that are designed to avoid wasting money on ideas that have not met the market validation criteria, and to learn from potentially costly missteps early on in the product development cycle.

10 Steps - From Idea to Business

Starting a business can be a very rewarding experience, though, it has it’s challenges, however, successful entrepreneurs and business owners focus on validating their business concepts in order to make critical decisions on capital and resource investments.

During the Idea transformation stages, the most prominent ones (that usually make it to the concept stage) are the ones that can be evidenced either through research data and identifiable market opportunities.
