Jeff and Pat Klingberg of Mountain Stream Group have been instrumental in helping me move forward with the development of my invention. Not only have they helped me perfect the development process from an engineering perspective, but also they have become actively involved in the marketing and product development lifecycle. It was difficult working with companies who only had a half-hearted interest in my endeavor. Jeff and Pat have travelled to my hometown twice for one-on-one meetings that have helped to further enhance the product. If you are looking for a company that will support your endeavor from all business angles I highly recommend Mountain Stream Group.Apr 26, 2017Verified

Payment methods accepted
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Depending on the type of project and the nature of the work to be performed, we will use one of the following fee arrangements. Fixed project fee: We may apply a lump-sum or fixed-fee value-based contract for projects that have a well-defined scope, a set of deliverables, and schedule. Any projects less than $2,500 must be paid in full to begin work. Equal to or over $2,500, half of the project fee is required to begin work, and if project completion is less than 8 weeks balance is due upon completing work or if completion is equal to or greater than 8 weeks milestone payments are required. Hourly: For projects that don’t have a clearly defined scope, set of deliverables and/or schedule we will utilize a time and material arrangement. We apply a blended rate or a variable hourly rate structure based on employee and service category. The client will be billed monthly and payment is due immediately upon receipt of invoice. Retainer. Retainer contracts are used with clients who wish to have a series of assignments or projects completed over a specified period of time, or who want to secure our availability to perform work. Client agrees to pay us, in advance, a fixed monthly fee to secure our Services. Our minimum retainer is 6 months at $3,000 for 20 hours. Prepaid Hourly. Prepaid hourly is a form of a retainer. It is typically used with clients who want to have a series of virtual (e-mail, phone or web-based) consultations or who want to secure our availability to perform work on an as-needed basis. Time can be purchased in 10-hour increments. Hybrid. We may employ a combination of the aforementioned compensation methods for projects where a large part of the scope can be defined, i.e. fixed fee, but where additional services may be required, i.e. hourly or day rate. Our minimum billing is $500.
- What types of customers have you worked with?We serve, and have served, startup to Fortune 500 consumer, business-to-business, industrial, and professional services organizations across the continental United States and the world.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?An entrepreneur needed a business plan. They were confused on how and where to start the process. We started by asking them a series of questions about their education, business, customers, and competitors. By putting their answers and the information we obtained during market research into a mind map we were able to get them to focus and understand their achievements. As an benefit it improved their morale and sparked their enthusiasm about their business.
