The Business Accelerator Model
The business accelerator model begins with a detailed analysis in order to identify a company’s areas of opportunity.
Expansion model design:
Based on the analysis, the consultants and entrepreneur establish a specific strategy (the expansion model) that will allow the business to attain stable growth.
During the acceleration process, specialized consultants actively support the entrepreneur throughout execution, supervision, and tracking of commitments made based on the expansion plan.
The entrepreneur is advised when problems emerge during the acceleration stage.
Likewise, the company’s expansion strategy is implemented. It may include determining new markets and products, designing a better market coverage strategy and value proposal, institutionalizing governance capacities, and other measures.
Constant on-site visits are made to keep accurate track of how strategies designed during business consulting are implemented.
