Does your organization fully capitalize on opportunities for growth? What is the cost of these missed opportunities to your business? Are you internally aligned and coordinated on your growth strategies? Do you have the process and capacity to bring great ideas to market in a timely manner?
In today’s busy and rapidly changing world, we need to be spending more time focusing on the future when in reality we have less time available in our busy schedules. Not properly investing the time and energy in future growth not only puts your organization at a competitive disadvantage, it places it at risk longer term.
The Growthpreneur provides organizations a solution to this challenge. Working alongside and in support of your leadership team, Growthpreneurs leverage their experience and expertise to partner in building your growth engine. Having the benefit of an outside perspective, they are in the ideal position to contribute new ideas and perspectives and identify and recommend opportunities that may not be as obvious internally due to our familiarity or comfort with the status quo. Even modest improvements in growth can translate to a significant dollar value to the firm and your shareholders.
For most organizations, the growth potential is already residing within your organization. The Growthpreneur is the catalyst to bring out and uncover this potential and to help you realize the untapped value within.

What is the difference between a Growthpreneur and Entrepreneur?
The typical Entrepreneur is proficient in bringing new ideas to life, whether it is in the form of a new business, product, or service. These activities generally relate to the start-up and early stage phase of the lifecycle. A Growthpreneur is an extension in that in addition to these start-up capabilities, they contribute expertise in scaling and growing these ideas, generally in larger organizations where a more evolved approach to growth is required reflecting the greater organization complexity.
How would a Growthpreneur help my organization?
Not maximizing your growth potential represents a significant opportunity cost for organizations and your shareholders. There are generally three main causes holding companies back from reaching their growth potential: 1) a lack of formal time to focus on growth; 2) the absence of an institutional approach to identifying and developing growth opportunities; and 3) an organizational comfort with the status quo. The Growthpreneur understands how to help organizations push through these the barriers to open your eyes to these opportunities, to build confidence in your ability to achieve these goals, and to work with you in developing the path and the capacity to deliver.
