Many consulting firms focus on one stage of the business lifecycle. Ground Floor Partners is a little different — we work with clients at each stage: start-up, growth and maturity. We understand the problems small business owners have to deal with every day: budgets are tight, resources are limited, and a beautiful planning document isn’t worth much if the plan isn’t implemented.
Building a successful, sustainable business is not just about planning. It’s also about execution. Common obstacles to growth are people, technology, and processes. We have experience with all three — getting the right people in place, while using the right technology to execute efficient and effective processes.
The following is a partial list of our consulting services.
Consulting Services for Small Businesses
Strategy Consulting focuses on helping clients establish a clear vision, long term goals, and a road map. We also help clients communicate and execute their plan.
Our management consulting services focus on getting the right people, processes, systems and policies in place, so they can run their business more efficiently, accelerate business growth, and reduce dependence on the business owner and other key employees.
Business Plan services are appropriate for startups and established organizations. Our focus is on consulting, not just writing.
Marketing Plan Our marketing planning process is structured to provide real value, yet flexible enough to suit almost any business.
Market Research is individually tailored to each specific client situation. Most of our market research projects involve interviews or custom panels. We do not prepare or sell standard industry reports.
Feasibility Studies focus on market feasibility, in other words: is there a market for this? We do not perform engineering feasibility studies. We perform a feasibility studies for businesses of all sizes.
Audits & Assessments
Audit & Assessment services are designed for small established businesses, but can be adapted to larger businesses (and non-profits) if desired. Business owners often get so close to their business that they see the trees, but miss the forest. Our assessments help business owners identify problems, bottlenecks, risks and opportunities that may be hiding in plain sight.
Exit Strategy Consulting
Exit Strategy services are appropriate for businesses with at least five or ten employees and/or revenue exceeding one million dollars. Common exit strategies include selling the business, private equity recapitalization, gifting (to family members or others), ESOP conversion, worker cooperative conversions, and others.
We never over-promise, but we always deliver.
