Supporting Your Business Growth

CN Strategic Advisors are here to make sure that you put the right growth strategy in place and make your business a success not just in the short term, but long term as well.

We’ll help you assess the best options for growing your business, whether that’s using organic means for instance product/geographical expansion or inorganic means such as acquisition or private equity funding to accelerate growth or remove competition.

Once we know more about your growth ambitions and ultimate goals, we can help you to create a bespoke strategic plan and provide ongoing advice and assistance to deliver this, for instance raising debt, identifying, appraising and executing acquisitions or financial forecasting for scenario planning and improved visibility.

If you’d like to speak with one of our advisors about your business, get in touch by filling out the contact form or by giving us a call.

Different Types Of Growth Strategy

Organic growth is often seen as the most stable type of growth for a business, with the lowest risk. 

 

Private Equity investment can be a great way to take your business through substantial growth.

The investment gives you access to cash that can be used to grow your business quickly over the short term.

It’s important to make sure that you choose investors that align with your business goals.

Merging with another business or acquiring a business in a similar space can also allow for rapid growth. It also allows you to expand your existing product/service range or to venture into new markets. 

CN Strategic Advisors can help you to identify businesses that will add to your existing portfolio, so you can see the returns you hope for. 

Partnerships can be extremely effective if they’re planned well. Like a merger or acquisition, it can enable you to expand your customer base and tap into markets you haven’t previously. 

However, planning a partnership needs to be thorough. Should anything bad happen to your business partner, it may shed negative light upon your own business.
