Business Cases

Confidence to proceed with your investment

The next step after a financial feasibility study , a business case analyses your investment options, looks at how each delivers on your investment goals, and how they can be expected to perform. It gives you a robust framework that gives you assurance on all aspects of your investment.

Business cases help you make sound decisions

"Gemelli started out doing the financial modelling for our hub redevelopment, looking at the costing, and how we could afford the build. But they quickly took on a bigger role… They offer fantastic support… We couldn’t have got to the stage we’re at without Gemelli, that's the bottom line.”

Russell Grainger, Pastor, Mount Wellington Community Church

The business case process

Business cases can often be long, tedious reads offering little value. We do business cases differently, delivering concise documents that outline in plain language five things you need to know to make a sound investment decision.

1. Your case for considering investment

  • Why are you exploring this opportunity?
  • What does success look like?
  • How will you know you've been successful?

2. Your investment options

  • What does each option cost?
  • How do they deliver on success?

3. How each option stacks up commercially

  • Revenue streams
  • Operating costs
  • Financing costs
  • Rates of return

Commercial Strategy

A commercial strategy is an extension of a business case. It looks at ways to maximise revenue streams and reduce expenses. Our goal is to optimise the commercial viability of your project to enhance your social, environmental, and financial outcomes. Commercial strategies are often used to investigate markets for property investments. For example, we may compare rents from different markets and compare those financial outcomes to your social impact strategy. We’ll discuss whether you need a commercial strategy in your discovery call.

Business case fees & timing

A simple five page business case starts from $5,000 + GST. The more we explore investment options in detail, the more your business case will cost. Most business cases take six weeks but talk to us about your time frame.

“Gemelli are very good at understanding problems, unearthing relevant background, and prioritising needs. That gives us a sense of how to pilot a new idea safely because we haven't money to burn building houses only to find our plan hasn't worked. Gemelli give us the data to focus our future strategy.”

Dominic Foote, CEO, New Zealand Housing Foundation
