The Business Accelerator Model

Detailed analysis:

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.

Acceleration process:

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.
