A new player in global e-commerce, the company is set to conquer an ever growing e-commerce trend in high-end fashion from its Dubai Headquarter.

Setup and Grow
Launched in March 2017, the company is a platform for users to browse, discover and book courses, classes, activities and workshops.
Growth Partners setup and now operates the company's finance functions. We focus on building scalable and digital financial processes that operate on minimum cost.
Transform To Scale
The software company transforms its current business model from a traditional offering to a scalable automated self-service.
Growth Partners transformed and simplified processes and systems (digital invoicing, inventory management, reporting) to prepare and support the company's scale.
Our work led to significant cost savings for the finance function.
Growth Strategy Formulation
The traditional family business needs a renewed strategy that will bring the company back to growth.
Growth Partners assessed the company's growth readiness. We recommended a transformation strategy as prerequisite for growth and supported its execution with the team. We focused on growth, built an execution roadmap and defined execution monitoring tools for the board of directors.
Strategic support to CEO
The Telecommunication Service provider had undergone a heavy growth phase and now needed to consolidate processes, activities and structures.
As follow on activity to a full time CFO position, we supported the CEO on various strategic topics, for example an HR incentive and salary harmonization structure or on restructuring the board of directors meetings.
Together with the Board we developed the business plan in a difficult business and financial environment.
The model was supported by data driven financial analysis, the uncertainties of future developments were modelled via a Monte Carlo Simulation.
The clean tech company had won a large contract for supplying a turnkey solution and needed a bank to issue a funding solution and a performance bond - all in a very challenging SME banking situation.

The Boutique Roastery has grown beyond its current structures. To accelerate the growth, structures and governance need to be strengthened.
Growth Partners has performed a diagnostics on the company's growth capability, developed an action plan for improvements and supported the execution: from working capital, inventory management and funding ability to financial system and cost accounting.
This design driven boutique e-commerce player was in need of a financial plan to support a potential exit discussion.
