ABOUT US

At Think & Grow, we act as 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.

OUR STORY


OUR STORY

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

Treat others with dignity and respect, always collaborate.

EMBRACE CHANGE

Help drive change with positive intent, always look for a better way.

WORK WITH PASSION

Inspire others and care deeply about what you do.

WELCOME FEEDBACK

Welcome hard conversations and act on it.

GO EXPLORE

Expand your horizons and never stop learning.

LEAN IN

Persist, don’t give up when things get hard.
