Testimonial

"Orchid Black was able to come up with phenomenal insights in a matter of weeks just by analyzing the data that was already within our own company. That alone was worth every penny of the VCA (Value Creation Assessment)." 

-CEO & Founder


This project embodies the archetype of an organization built by a brilliant, visionary founder who has a good product, then builds a successful company as large as he possibly can. However, like most great founders, he eventually hit a wall and needed to bring on a growth partner to make a decision on where to go next. The Orchid Black team was the perfect complement to help take this company to the next level, increase the value of the business, and exit quickly.
