When I started this business, my objective was to scale exceptional consumer product brands.
As background: I have been an entrepreneur - and a growth accelerant - for a very long time. I've advised and activated growth strategy for customers around the world, from Fortune 500s to baked-from-scratch startups. I've scaled and systematized and innovated and exited a number of businesses, from private sales to private equity deals. While I was fortunate to work on lots of biggies over the years, what always hit me in the heart was working with crazy-ambitious founders.
At the age of 40, I realized that this was the Big Mission™ of my life: designing a modern, active, results-obsessed management consultancy with deep digital expertise to power up founder-led brands. (Some call this Consulting 4.0. I mostly just call it doing the work.)
I deeply believe in the power of entrepreneurship to change communities, to change economies - to change the world. I've studied it, I've taught it, and I've lived-and-breathed it from the bottom of my soul for the last 20+ years.
We bring the financial acumen and operational diligence (read: results obsession) of the top tier management consultant alongside the problem-solving instinct and curiousity (read: creative resourcefulness) of the entrepreneur.
So why would this help you?
Well, data tells us that the top challenges faced by high growth entrepreneurs include:
- Hunting down top talent (read: acquiring best in class people);
- Managing cash flow (read: nearly 70% of the best are bootstrapping); and
- Not having had experience scaling a high growth organization (read: accessing expertise).
Everyone talks about the gap in access to capital - and I'm constantly thrilled to see the ever-increasing entrepreneurial infrastructure designed to support with this side of things.
My obsession, on the other hand, is the immediate gap in access to top-notch strategic expertise, to results-focused thinking ... to that game-changing information that the big guys get. (I mean, information is power, right?)
So here's my little dream: if we could empower founder-led businesses with access to top notch thinking, advising, and tools... and co-design high-impact, modern roadmaps for growth strategy together, how much could we move the needle? That's the goal, baby.
So let's grow.
