Atazzo is a premier technical, leadership, and data consultancy serving global clients.


Moving beyond an early-stage startup is as much dependent on leadership capabilities as customer acquisition. Once companies attain a product-market fit and begin to grow, it is often their internal leadership capabilities that are the determining factor between success and failure. We advise growth-stage startups in a variety of industries on how to grow and improve their leadership capabilities with great success.


Whether it’s Data Science and Machine Learning or scalability challenges with technology architecture, growth-stage companies have a unique set of needs. As customers and traffic levels grow, so must system performance. We have extensive experience in high-performance systems, including real-time systems, in a variety of industries.


Before companies attain rapid growth, they are often able to scale without much in the way of formal process. This ceases to be sustainable when companies reach a certain level of complexity in technology and organizational structure. We help growth-stage startups design and implement lightweight processes that help sustain and increase growth.
