We can quickly establish various parts of the consortia start-up phase, including legal, financial and overall organization and can also help consortia engaged in re-structuring, merger or getting established in new territories and legal jurisdictions.


From initial set-up (legal, financial, organizational assistance) to support for ongoing management and operation, and provision of the infrastructure services necessary for successful operation (web-based collaboration, mailing lists, etc.) we can manage the entire infrastructure thus freeing the group membership to concentrate on the achieving the objectives of the group.

What are Consortium Services?

Wheatstone Consulting offers a fast, flexible, and cost-effective way to form and run Trade Associations, Special Interest Groups, Commercial Standards Initiatives and consortia. We provide an infrastructure that meets the member management, meeting and working group management, specification development, consensus review, publication, and IT service needs of any group.
