We Accelerate Growth

We empower businesses to scale better, scale faster and scale smarter.

Scaling up can be like driving through a desert. To succeed you need fuel, equipment, people and direction, without which you may find yourself in the much dreaded ‘valley of death’. There are many essential ingredients in enabling sustainable growth in your business, and it is the most multidisciplinary initiative any company can undertake. Are you on track to reach your destination?

Presenting notes to team

Take your growth to the next level.

Organic growth focuses on producing more, and increasing sales whilst needing to expand to accommodate this growth, for example, purchasing new equipment, or employing more staff. Whilst most successful businesses experience growth over time, scaling up is much harder to achieve.

There are many differences between growth and growing at scale. In essence, scaling your business means you are able to handle substantial growth with only incremental added costs. A scale-up is a high growth business who is looking to take their growth to the next level. Generally, high growth is defined as a company that has achieved growth of 20% or more in either employment or turnover year on year for at least two years. Whatever your growth ambitions, our team can guide you on your journey.

Businesses we work with benefit from:

01.

Attract Investment

A growing business often requires investment to support its growth ambitions. But for smaller businesses it can be a daunting prospect. We work with you to explore investment options and provide advice on how to attract that investment.

02.

Financial Awareness

Accurate accounting information is the backbone of any business and helps drive growth by providing tools for better-informed decision-making. Our team help you to structure accounting procedures that allow for analysis, trend spotting, and planning.

03.

Prioritise growth

Whilst you know your own business better than anyone else, do you have the time or the experience to look at your systems and understand what they are telling you? With integrated data we can help you make the best decisions to grow.

We work with businesses with ambition to grow or scale.
