Twoeyes Growth Advisors brings together a virtual team of highly experienced strategic, operational, technical, commercial and investment specialists who provide outstanding clarity to help small, medium and large (private, public and not-for-profit) organisations unlock their potential.
The Twoeyes team of Growth Advisors works closely with Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Boards and CEO’s to prepare their organisation for successful transformational change, strategic growth, capital raising and exit (typically a trade sale or Management Buy Out) or succession.
Unlike most business consultants and advisors, we understand first-hand what it means to own and grow a business. Twoeyes team members are not just specialists in their respective fields: as entrepreneurs and business owners ourselves, we have first-hand experience of the demands of growth in small, medium and large companies. We have personally undertaken strategic operational growth projects, capital raisings, trade sales and mergers and acquisitions. As a result, we can offer Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Boards and CEOs’ clarity, empathy and insights that only hard-won personal experience can bring.
Whatever the assignment, Twoeyes’ focus is clear: achieve a strategic business position that is unique and sustainable, improve operational performance and reduce business risk resulting in greater benefits to key stakeholders and a significant increase in the value of shareholders’ equity.
By combining the principles of Private Equity, Venture Capital and Strategic Operational Planning with first-hand entrepreneurial and executive-level experience, Twoeyes offers clients a unique approach to business consulting.
