Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Business Growth Strategies Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Business Growth Strategies talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Business Growth Strategies talent and are able to provide clients with Business Growth Strategies professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Business Growth Strategies professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Business Growth Strategies consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Business Growth Strategies consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Business Growth Strategies talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Business Growth Strategies talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Business Growth Strategies consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Business Growth Strategies

What are business growth strategies?

A business growth strategy is a long term plan that can help any entrepreneur or small business realize their full potential. Business growth strategies look at key dimensions as well as the bigger picture and see how they intersect to help you grow your business faster, easier, and most importantly – profitably. According to Fintalent’s Business Growth Strategies consultants, business growth strategies can be used to improve your business in terms of profit margins and competitiveness in the market. But like anything else, they come with a number of advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages of Business Growth Strategies

  1. In an expanding economy, the customer base is likely to grow as well. This means new opportunities for you
  2. Once your company becomes established, it will be easier to finance further growth;
  3. Growth can lead to higher profits at lower risk levels because some sectors (such as high tech and health care) continue growing regardless of economic conditions.

Disadvantages of Business Growth Strategies

  1. If you are not aware of the market, it can be difficult to set up a firm position. You will probably have to start at the bottom of the market, and then work your way up. This can take many years;
  2. Avoidance of risk is not possible (for instance, no company wants to risk still being around in ten years time)
  3. The cost of growth might be higher than expected. You may need more internal resources and links with suppliers and customers which could increase overhead costs.

The main factors that will influence your growth strategy are supply and demand, the extent to which you tend to meet these demands, and the costs involved in meeting them. Supply factors include market size, the level of competition and your ability to enter new markets. Demand factors are how much of your product or service customers want and how much they are prepared to pay for it. The extent to which you meet these demands (your supply) will also determine your costs.

Growth strategies can be broadly divided into four stages:

In Stage 1, companies keep their current market share or try to maintain their position in the market at a certain price point. In this stage, growth is about expanding the number of units sold if that is less than the volume needed for profitability. If price is the most important factor, then growth is about reducing costs that get in the way of profit. This also means that customer service cannot take a back seat and that long-term customer relationships will be maintained.

In Stage 2, companies focus on broadening their customer base. This could mean reaching out to new markets, either geographically (for example, by introducing your product to new international markets) or by segmenting your existing markets. Expanding the market requires a more dynamic approach. It requires a customer-centric strategy where you understand what your needs are in terms of quality and service standards, which then need to be met by your firm with respect to both internal and external customers.

People may be surprised to learn that a growth strategy will also involve a basic change in your business model. If you are now operating at a loss, then this should no longer be the case. You need to look at both the short and long term benefits of redefining your business’s cost base, skills structure and processes. Growth can also involve a change in the way you sell and market your products or services. This could mean more aggressive sales strategies, but it could also mean developing new outlets for distribution (for example, selling directly to consumers over the Internet).

Stage 3 involves expansion into new markets (or avoiding decline in existing markets) by entering new segments or offering different products or services in an existing segment. Expanding means not just making more of the same item, but developing new products or services that can be sold directly to your customers. Inflation may eat into part of this growth.

Stage 4 is terminal growth, when maturity sets in and the product or service has lost its market appeal. In other words, you may have to invest in developing a new item if the existing product is not cost-effective any longer. You will also have to change the way you sell and market the product or service. This could involve a change in the customer base (for example, dropping your price to match lower market rates), or a more creative advertising and sales strategy.

Key Factors Influencing Growth Strategies

The key factors that influence growth strategies are supply and demand, the extent to which you tend to meet these demands, and the costs involved in meeting them. Supply factors include market size, the level of competition and your ability to enter new markets. Demand factors are how much of your product or service customers want and how much they are prepared for it. The extent to which you meet these demands (your supply) will also determine your costs.

The most important supply factors are market size, the level of competition and your ability to enter new markets. Market size refers to the number of potential customers in a particular market, whether they are domestic or international. If you can expand into new markets, you will experience a more dynamic, higher growth rate and greater profitability. The problem is that your competition may determine how large your market is at any one time – for example, if a company sees that its competitors are expanding into new markets (and it does not), it will be less motivated to do so.

The second major factor is the extent to which you tend to meet customer demands. This involves assessing the level of competition in the market, your ability to adapt to changing demands and your ability to enter new markets. If you remain a small niche player, you will experience slower growth than if you are a large player with a high market share. A more dynamic sales strategy will probably be required, especially if it involves stepping into new markets which previously have not been serviced. This requires well thought out expansion strategies.

The third major supply factor is your ability to enter new markets. This can expand the overall size of your market and allow you to meet customer demands more easily or at lower prices than those asked by competitors. It also means having a strong relationship with suppliers and distributors. The supply side is influenced by the market size and your ability to expand into new markets (that is, diversify). But the biggest factor that determines supply is whether your costs are less than your customer’s willingness to pay.

Demand factors include the number of potential customers in a particular market, whether they are domestic or international. If you can expand into new markets, then demand will increase dramatically. Demand is also influenced by market trends and the popularity of what you offer. As we have seen with fashion, taste and trends vary greatly from one market to another. One fashion item that may sell in large volumes on a particular continent may not sell at all on another continent: tastes vary regionally and internationally.

The most important demand factors are the level of competition in the market and your ability to adapt to changing demands. If you remain a small niche player, demand will increase slower than if you are a large player with a high market share. Once again, if your competitors expand into new markets, then your motivation will be to do likewise. You also need to be conscious of keeping up with changing tastes and fashion trends or customer expectations may diverge from those of your target customer base.

As we have seen, supply and demand determine how successful a firm will be as an individual company or business unit within an industry (and determine how competitive the industry will become overall).
