Growthink helps entrepreneurs and executives become more
We accomplish this through our suite of
services and products that solve the key needs of
entrepreneurs. These needs include: expertly identifying
and pursuing new opportunities, developing business
plans, raising capital, creating executive dashboards, building marketing and growth
strategies, and developing and executing on exit plans.
In 1999, at the height of the Internet bubble, Growthink co-founders and serial
entrepreneurs Dave Lavinsky and Jay Turo graduated with their MBAs from UCLA’s
Anderson School of Management. At that time, Lavinsky and Turo identified an
interesting opportunity; thousands of businesspeople wanted to launch Internet ventures,
but they didn’t know how to start, finance and build them.
So, Lavinsky and Turo used their market research, finance, and small business
backgrounds plus their recently gained MBA skills and mentalities to systematically help
these entrepreneurs succeed. Since that time, Lavinsky and Turo have built Growthink’s
team, client base, and service and product offerings in pursuit of their mission of helping
all entrepreneurs succeed.
Growthink’s mission is to help entrepreneurs and executives plan, innovate and grow their businesses so they can create jobs, offer customers better products and services, realize great personal
satisfaction and wealth, and fund programs that make the world a better place.

Our Client Promises
- We Honor YOUR Journey. We are PRESENT with and for YOU. We have the ultimate respect for those that embark on the great “hero’s journey” of starting and/or growing a business. With each and every client, we embrace our mission of helping entrepreneurs - of all sizes, with all kinds of ambitions, objectives, goals, dreams, and visions - to succeed.
- We Deliver Quality. We subscribe to Robert Pirsig’s famous definition of quality as the “result of care.” We take care to do and create things right.
- We Are a Team. We embody and utilize the royal “WE”, not the pedestrian “I.” We recognize that we all stand on each other's shoulders in doing great work, in accomplishing great things.
- We Are Efficient. Brevity and timeliness are high virtues. We define and adhere to project roles, responsibilities, and timelines. We “get on with it,” and effectively utilize technology to collaborate, to connect, and to complete in transparent, real-time manners.
- We are Opportunistic and Strategic. We find that fine balance between the “fierce urgency of now” to complete tasks and to do lists, and the longer, strategic view of building equity value over time.
