Every business has growth ambitions, but do you have a growth plan, and do you know how to implement the growth plan? Understanding the key drivers of growth and is critical to effectively scaling your business.
What are the key barriers to growth? How do you organise your sales team? How do you manage the relationship of product and sales effectively? How do you hire today for tomorrow?
And once you set the plan – how do you keep to it? What if you need help on the way?
SI Partners advises businesses across the globe on how to create, manage and plan for all aspects of growth, enabling stakeholders to achieve their ambitions.
SI Partners helps businesses understand what type of investors to target and what investors look for from their portfolio.
The majority of founders’ key skills are in product, tech, or sales, but yet they can spend 50%+ of their time raising money, not doing what they are best at. Often raising cash at the point of need rather than a strong position in the cycle, changing the relationship with investors. Using funds wisely and planning the investment cycle to have the right support at the right time redresses this balance.
SI Partners supports businesses from start-up, to seed, to C round, (to exit) to raise capital for strategic growth priorities. Using our global network of acquirers and investors, we connect businesses to funding sources ranging from VC and PE, to bank debt, family offices and global acquirers.
SI Partners advises businesses on how to commercially structure and plan to effectively achieve scale.
What is your sales strategy? Are you engaging the right decision makers? Does your proposition answer a contemporary problem and give you competitive advantage? Are you effectively articulating your message?
SI Partners has worked with innovators across the globe to build commercially robust technology and creative businesses.
The most critical part of any growing or scaling business is revenue strategy.
How are you recognising revenue, how are you set up to grow your existing customer base, does your pricing work? How do growth partners and investors look at your revenue operations?
SI Partners Accelerate Programme works with entrepreneurs to explore, develop and set the correct revenue strategy to allow their business to scale to its full potential.
Our leadership coaching and development programmes leverage our consultancy heritage to give frank, honest and succinct advice that supports our clients to become better leaders and build innovative talent-based businesses.
As your business grows, how do you move from a founder-led culture to an established organisational culture? How do you understand and motivate your team? How do you develop your leadership style? SI Partners guides founders in moving from good to great leadership as the business develops, allowing the whole team to flourish.
Organisational structure and design is a key element of planning for growth and scale. Our global team draws on our extensive consultancy experience to give our Accelerate Programme cohort insight and practical advice for designing their organisation of the future, structuring for success in line with shareholder ambitions from the genesis of the business.
Culture is both one of the biggest drivers of growth and potentially one of the biggest barriers.
To get to where you have already you will have built an identifiable culture, you are likely to have a mission statement and may well have outlined a value set. But is your culture scalable? How do you inculcate culture when you double in size every two months? Understanding your culture and being able to share what it means to be an employee is vital to the success of your business.
SI Partners’ Accelerate programme supports businesses to align organisational culture and values to strategic vision and shareholder objectives.
Growth can be organic and inorganic. What do you do if an acquisition opportunity presents itself? Is this the right decision, how do you make it payback, how do you convince your investors to back you?
Once you have got over the first hurdle, what are the risks involved and how do you use the deal structure to mitigate these risks? Critically, how do you do all of this at speed to maximise the opportunity?
SI Partners advises acquirers and investors across the globe on building their businesses both organically and inorganically. We bring our rich experience of operating both sides of the deal to bear on acquisition mandates and acquisition research projects for clients looking to source the most relevant, innovative and contemporary businesses and talent.
Exiting your business is about value and partnership with your acquirer. They are symbiotic.
We often work on transactions that are off-market, where there is a prior contact with the buyer who is conducting a test, learn, acquire strategy – often without you even realising it.
How do you take control of this process and manage your own destiny? How do you build the right relationships now to be at the right place, at the right time in the future? As part of SI Partners’ Accelerate programme, members have access to both the Accelerate cohort and SI Partners wider network of entrepreneurs and investors.
