Get to Know GrowthWheel
—Help client companies make decisions and take action

GrowthWheel is a visual toolbox and online platform used by business advisors, incubators, and entrepreneurship educators to help businesses make decisions and take action.

It helps startup and growth companies build their businesses through a simple action oriented process — one that stays true to the way most entrepreneurs think and work.

For the business advisor, the absolute flexibility of the toolbox means that it can be fully adapted to existing advisory tools and client needs, and it can even be used by clients themselves, thereby saving time for the advisor.

The GrowthWheel framework is used to start structured conversations about a business, and helps the entrepreneur identify opportunities and challenges of the company. Avoid blind spots using the framework and identify the most important focus areas within your client’s business. Our wheel serves as the main checklist for what steps to take next.
