“Anna worked with me through the development of my business plan and investor deck for a cloud based application I am developing called CareVineTM. Anna showed attention to detail, professionalism, integrity and great communication ability and enthusiasm for the project. I felt very comfortable and confident in her skills and ability to help me understand the relevant details as the project evolved and have always been pleased about the decision to bring in Growthink.”
– Sheila Mansell, Founder of CareVine
"We initially contacted Growthink to help us develop strategies to grow our business. We were impressed with how quickly Anna became familiar with our particular industry, and the insightful questions she posed as we put together a growth plan. She and the Growthink team were excellent in keeping the conversation on track and focused on our goals. We were provided advice that was instrumental in changing the way we approach our business. One outcome of the discussions was to look at potential investors and buyers for our business. Anna’s work in coordinating discussions, providing support during initial calls, and offering constructive feedback during the debriefing phase was instrumental in making this process work. Although we decided not to pursue the offer that came through, we are now much better positioned for future opportunities."
