Business Growth Optimisation

We work with founders and management teams of UK-headquartered, high-growth businesses, from startups and scaleups to established SMEs on a new growth journey.  We have particular expertise in tech, property, healthcare, financial services and sports.

Founders typically come to us for one of the following reasons:

Business Exit

They’re growing the business with exit in mind, and want to make sure they’re doing the right things now to ensure a smoother process and higher valuation later on

Business Growth

The business is growing so fast it’s starting to feel out of control. As the founder they’re worried about costs spiralling, effectiveness of new hires and sustainability of providing excellence to customers

Organisation

The business has ‘got by’ until now on ‘working on the fly’ but the founders have now recognised they need a different approach, and want some help in bringing more structure to their business operations

New Product Launch

They’re about to launch a new product/service or enter a new market, but don’t feel they’re set up to do that well and worry how the business will cope with the growth they want to generate

What outcomes do we deliver?

We leave businesses with new ways of working that support, rather than hinder their growth.  We put founders back in the driving seat and give them the data to make powerful decisions about their business.  Overall, we ‘tighten the ship’ and increase the likelihood of long-term success.

CLARITY

EFFICIENCY

FOCUS

STRUCTURE

How do we deliver all of that?

  • We work with founders and management teams to first create clarity at the strategic level, making sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to vision, and that the targets and milestones are clear and achievable.
  • Once this critical piece is in place, we identify key business areas and/or processes that need to be introduced or upgraded and work with the business to create target designs and implementation plans
  • We then work alongside the business to implement, test and refine new processes, bringing practical knowledge and experience to ensure implementations are as smooth as possible
  • We implement the ability to track business performance effectively
  • We introduce tech where appropriate to streamline processes or empower staff by serving data up in a more user-friendly way
  • We will sometimes run parts of a business on an interim basis, until new, values-aligned team members can be recruited
