testimonials

Tesseractive has been a tremendous resource in all aspects of my start-up, from helping me better understand the fundamentals of a scalable business, to the methodical approach towards testing and implementing new business ideas. Grant cares deeply about seeing my business succeed, which is apparent in his high quality deliverables and in-depth consulting sessions.

Corey Schneider

Founder and CEO, New York Adventure Club

Working with Grant was terrific. He took a lot of time to learn our business, and also gave us a crash course in finance, along with accounting and strategic advice he provided us throughout our working relationship. He also created a complex and multifaceted tool to track various aspects of our finances and even predict our profits and budget accordingly, even when altering several different variables that correspond to future projects and expenses. That’s a fairly wordy way of saying that tesseractive has helped our agency in many ways this past year, and has given us new perspective on the way we do business. We’re definitely looking forward to continuing our working relationship with tesseractive going forward.

some common questions

What the %$!@ is a tesseractive?

Tesseractive is a portmanteau of two words, tesseract and active. A tesseract is a four-dimensional shape that is to a cube as what a cube is to a square. Here’s what wikipedia says about tesseracts.

How much will this cost me?

We have a standardized pricing schedule that is based on two primary factors: the intensity of the project and the contract length. In other words, if it is a ton of work it will likely cost more; if the engagement is spread over months instead of days it will be priced at a lower rate.

We offer competitive prices and look to maximize your return on the investment. Drop us a line to find out more about pricing.

Do you only work with companies in New York City?

Currently our only physical office is located in NYC. However, we get around – our clients hail from all over the US as well as in Europe and Asia. If you have a device with internet connectivity we should be good to go regardless of your location.

Can we chat before I commit? I want to make sure this is money well spent.

Absolutely. Shoot us a message and we can set something up.

Do you guys happen to invest in companies too?

Yes. We provide capital to companies on a case-by-case basis and have a network of investors and lenders too.

Are you hiring?

We are always looking to hire amazing people. If you think you can provide value to Tesseractive please email us at careers@gotesseractive.com.

about us

We want to help small companies succeed.

Tesseractive was founded in 2015 to help new companies address the foundational components of any business or startup – specifically finance, strategy, and operations. We discovered that many founders/owners build great companies but often need assistance with those parts of business because they’ve had little exposure to them.

We have the experience and the expertise, and we’re passionate about our work in the same way that you are about yours. Reach out to us to discuss your specific problems and find out how tesseractive can help your company flourish.
