Who we are

We are an entrepreneur-powered consultancy. We help industry leaders to deliver growth opportunities that position them at the forefront of rapidly evolving markets.

Since being founded in London in 2013, the team has helped companies like Facebook, BP, Votorantim, Visa, Shazam, FCA, and Silver Lake PE activate entrepreneurial growth. Outside of London, we have a physical presence in Sao Paulo and Berlin.

As part of the Founders Forum (www.ff.co), we have access to the world’s most influential network of digital entrepreneurs and investors. This offers us a unique perspective into the new technologies, business models, and consumer expectations creating and reshaping the future of industries.
