"ThumbStopper was a fast-growing business and like many, ran into scaling issues across departments around $3M ARR. While we had crossed over market acceptance, it was apparent I needed help scaling the company in a predictable way. I was introduced to Orchid Black, and they quickly diagnosed our company through a Value Creation Assessment (VCA) and designed a growth program. This program has ThumbStopper scaling revenue in a predictable manner, allowing teams to manage with data and processes. These process foundations have put us on a path to higher growth and a much larger valuation towards an exit. In a few months, we saw ~30% revenue growth, and I have confidence this will continue to multiply. I highly recommend that all tech founders who are looking to scale, effectively take a hard look at OB."

"While I found the process and the deliverable of the VCA very helpful and insightful, I found the people involved in the project the most impressive. There was a great deal of care for our project. We were made to feel as if we were the most important client, and the level of insight provided not only into the challenges were looking to overcome but the potential opportunities for us as a company was outstanding.

This was not the typical consulting engagement. There is truth to their desire to help create value in a company. They were honest, which wasn't always easy to take, but it was what we asked for. I was thrilled with the engagement from the leader of our project. He was thoughtful, thorough, insightful, honest, tough, transparent, and engaged. I learned so much from him and the rest of the team that will remain impactful for some time to come.”

“Not only did Orchid Black help me navigate a successful $36M strategic exit, but we have continued to work together to expand my personal mission by growing a new company in a blue ocean space.
