Grow50 provides pro bono consulting support to deserving not-for-profit entities. For the companies that reach the final of Social Venture Partners Fast Pitch competition, we select 2 or 3 to help them through their growth issues on a pro bono basis. We are also support the winner of Crosscut Community Idea Lab.
Every month, Grow50 invites a couple of local CEOs to share with the entire multi-disciplinary Grow50 team a business problem which is impeding the company's growth. Subsequently, the CEO is a "silent observer," while the experienced Grow50 Consortium debate possible solutions to the company's challenge. This powerful blend of diverse professional perspectives often leads to highly creative solutions and always gives the CEO several new ideas to explore.
Grow50 is working with Choose Washington, an initiative by Washington State Government to help bring more business into our state. As a proven network of professionals specialized in working with emerging businesses, Grow50 Consortium is part of a package of benefits the State has pulled together to help entrepreneurs from out-of-state have a 'soft landing' here in the Evergreen State.
In addition, members of Grow50 joined Governor Inslee on his recent mission to promote trade with Japan & Korea.
