About Us

Providing strategic advisory and investment banking services to emerging and middle market companies since 1999.

Growthink Consulting develops strategic, innovation, exit and business plans to help companies grow, raise capital and exit. And through our wholly-owned subsidiary Growthink Capital, a FINRA / SIPC registered broker-dealer investment bank, we directly raise equity and debt capital and advise upon business sale & merger transactions.

Our Story & Mission

In 1999, Growthink co-founders Dave Lavinsky and Jay Turo graduated with their MBAs from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management. They conceived Growthink from their deep and abiding passion and curiosity for business. As Turo says, “The work we do at Growthink is what Dave and I would just naturally do whenever we got together – talking about businesses we love and how to make them better.”

Growthink’s mission is to help executives and entrepreneurs grow their businesses so they can create jobs, offer customers better products and services, realize personal satisfaction and wealth, and fund programs that make the world a better place.

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 find that fine balance between the fierce urgency of now to complete tasks and to do lists, and the longer, strategic view of building value over time.
