Who We Are
What We Do

Growth company CEOs have few places to turn when seeking experienced and objective advice. Leading strategy firms are too expensive and focus on large corporations. Board members have limited time and may lack the skill set to address critical business and organizational issues.

Power Strategy combines experience, a focus on growth company challenges and a team-based approach to provide a unique advisory service for CEOs.

Experience. Until you’ve raised capital, launched a product, made a quarter, built a leadership team, or sold a business it’s hard to appreciate the strategic and tactical decision-making that goes into running a successful growth business. Our market-driven approach draws on the experiences of founder Dave Power as an operating executive and board member in public and private growth companies.

A Focus on Growth Companies. CEOs have little time for expensive consulting engagements that become ‘science projects’. We use small teams and proven problem solving approaches that deliver results quickly and cost-effectively for growth stage companies.

A Team Approach. We’re at our best when we work closely with executive teams. Winning solutions draw on the perspectives of many talented individuals, each of whom may only have a piece of the puzzle. We contribute the analytics, experiences, and decision-making processes to help executives crystallize the most effective growth strategy. The result is a leadership team that is better educated on the business and more synchronized in execution.
