What we do

Parkview Consultants works mainly with startups and early stage companies crossing the divide between technology, innovation and sound business practice.

Many early stage companies struggle as, naturally enough, the founders are concentrating on the technology they have developed rather than the commercial aspects of running a new enterprise. Likewise many companies falter because they fail to adopt technologies appropriate to their needs.

With an extensive background in major multinationals, SMEs and Micro businesses, Parkview Consultants can help you steer through these challenges. Typical scenarios include:

  • Business Development – more than marketing, understanding your opportunities and realizing your potential
  • Technology Roadmaps – how to streamline your development, how to organise your teams
  • Company Evolution – staffing, outsourcing, CEO buddy, NxD

About Us

Parkview Consultants is owned by me, Rick Chapman. I have over 30 years of experience working in high tech industries, predominantly Semiconductors and Software. After 5 years with Marconi, I joined STMicroelectronics in 1990. Over nearly 12 years, I held a variety of international positions, including Semicustom R&D Director and Business Development Director – Microprocessors.

Since 2001, I have worked with several start-ups. I was a founding executive of SuperH Inc., an intellectual property licensing company and, as VP of Business Development, I delivered revenue growth from zero to $7m in two years. After a spell as CTO of Cobault Ltd, a CRM software company, I joined Spiral Gateway Ltd, a semiconductor start-up designing an innovative microprocessor architecture. I was a key player in raising two VC funding rounds totalling over £1m. I was also the CTO of Reveal2me Ltd., a new software company developing a disruptive content delivery platform for smartphones – a business we exited in 2012.

As Parkview Consultants, I work with startups crossing the divide between technology, innovation and sound business practice. Most of the work is handled personally. However, other highly talented people work with me on certain projects to ensure Parkview can offer a comprehensive service. Over the years I have built up a strong network of colleagues covering a broad range of disciplines. Parkview can therefore offer a complete portfolio service.

I have a number of other part time roles including:

NuNano Ltd.
Chair
Genome Key
Chair
EDI Partners Ltd
Partner
SETsquared Bristol
Entrepreneur in Residence
