ASCENT GROWTH PARTNERS

OUR STORY

We have always been fascinated by the natural phenomenon of growth. What makes us grow as individuals? How do we come together as a team, to achieve something significant, extraordinary? and in the process, make a lasting impact on our environment? We found this to be in direct contrast to what we saw around us, in the world of consulting. We saw firms choosing scale over impact or significance, feeling compelled to ‘feed an army’ of professionals rather than promote sustainable growth. While their clients were venturing into new markets, asking for solutions to new and fascinating challenges, and finding new ways of navigating a rapidly changing world, more consulting firms were choosing a predictable path, working in areas for which textbooks have already been written and touting methodologies as a safe path to walk.

WE SEE IT DIFFERENTLY

We see organisations venturing beyond their core business and navigating uncertainty as a core competence. We see clients finding new and innovative paths to growth, reinventing their business, at times, re-writing the rules for their industry. They are charting a new way. We decided to partner with these pioneers and follow the path less travelled. And so, in 2016, our South-African office opened, followed by our Singapore office, in 2019. We are often asked, why do we focus on growth? After all, challenges can be found in many corners of an organisation. Our answer is simple – we believe that growth truly matters. Whether you find yourself at times of abundant opportunity or when navigating challenging times for your organisation – discovering, preparing for and powering growth is essential to the long-term prosperity of your organisation.

HOW WE DO THINGS IS ALSO DIFFERENT

For us, growth is a management discipline which we help organisations recognise, learn and master. Armed with new skills, new experiences and a set of advanced tools, they are able to realise their growth ambitions and equipped to navigate new opportunity spaces, fit-for-future.

Over the past five years, we have had the privilege of working with clients who have realised their growth ambitions. In the process, we have seen inspired leadership, people take on new roles and discover why growth matters, to them and the people around them. That has been the most rewarding part of our work.

Welcome to our world.
