ABOUT

Great people grow great companies.
Great companies grow great people.

Think and Grow are growth partners to bold businesses. We build and grow high calibre teams that can compete globally in a world of rapid change.

Since the dotcom bubble we have been building a community of successful entrepreneurs, investors, technologists and digital innovators who want to change the world. At Think and Grow we believe great people thrive on imperfection and motivated by a desire to solve meaningful problems.

Since starting Think and Grow some of the highlight include:

Relocating a VP of Engineering from Silicon Valley to Sydney for a unicorn software business.

Kick-starting “digital transformation 2.0” for a ASX 100 business by designing the organisational structure and placing key digital executives.

Placing key executive positions for a pre-launch consumer software business that raised $11m in seed funding, including the Chief Technology Officer and Chief Customer Officer.

Helping an $100 b international technology company find an ANZ Managing Director.



OUR STORY


ABOUT

Coffee is great isn’t it? Well, like most bold ideas
Think and Grow started over coffee.

We knew we wanted to do something different and are fortunate that the 30,000
coffees we have drunk with Founders, Technologists, VC’s, Executives and Growth
specialists are not only our source of value as a partner but also our source of inspiration.

As we were sketching out our ideas, we started with culture and values first.
We then created our business model around these values.

The things we stand for:

BE HUMAN
01

Most businesses have basic human values listed as business values, our business value is to always have great human values.

GIVE DISRUPTION A HUG
02

We believe in change, to be great at what you do you need to stay close to it. This means participating in the community and helping to drive the change we desire.

WORK WITH PASSION AND HEART
03

We are passionate about the things that matter to us and wear these on our sleeve.

WELCOME UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS
04

As passionate people ourselves who work in a community of other passionate people, we appreciate that sometimes uncomfortable truths need to be uncovered.

BE OPEN
05

We believe in exploring issues, sometimes in unconventional ways.

LEAN IN THE HARDER THINGS GET
06

The things we do for our clients are hard, the harder the challenge gets the closer we need to be to the problem.
