And here are some comments from Growthink clients:

I loved working with Growthink. The staff are passionate about their work and committed to what they do in a way that can only be achieved when you love what you do. They helped keep us on track to achieve our planning goals. I am looking forward to continued success working with everyone from Growthink in the future.

Like all entrepreneurs (and, I’m a serial one), we all tend to fall in love with our own creations (and words to describe them). We have to! If we’re not our biggest cheerleader, who is?

But, seeing our own reflection in the eyes of those who affect our destiny: investors, partners, and key employees -- is not helpful reality. We might eat our own cooking, but will others? Others need to buy into both our ‘plans for dinner, and our recipe for a delicious success’. If not, we forever remain hungry, and we’re DOA.

This is why Growthink helped birth my company. They got to know both me and my vision. They helped ‘smack me upside the head’ to help make sure I was realistic, about meeting expectations. As a result, they helped craft, draft and construct the right written presentation. As a result, I got my funding.

Anyone can write a business plan. But Growthink develops business plans that facilitate raising capital and strong companies. That’s truly unique.
