Denning Branch International uses the word "turnaround" loosely and we include all forms of business development. While we are especially skilled at fixing the most dire of corporate situations, we also address scenarios such as capitalizing on new opportunities outside the core business area, improving profitability in healthy companies, and simply reversing decline in its early stages before crisis occurs.

DBI is particularly skilled at establishing new technology companies, for example saving portfolio companies of Venture Capital Corporations. Startups that have failed to roll-out, attract funding, commercialize technology, entice talented staff, and similar, are typical of the scenarios we fix.
