This was a social enterprise based in London that delivers a range of community cycling programmes and services, both to consumers and organisations. Founded in 2006, the company was launched with the intention of using cycling to make a positive difference to the lives of people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
From the little things, big things grow and the company has now increased to more than 36 employees and boasts an annual turnover of more than £1.3 million. But with even more ambitious plans for the future, they approached Rob Arnold from Merranti Consulting seeking both marketing and financial support.
Head of Business Development, Ben, worked closely with Rob Arnold and the Merranti team to develop a viable growth and investment readiness strategy, underpinned by a clear marketing plan. They explored potential partnership opportunities and established some clear frameworks against which to manage their growth.
Ben says that having regular meeting with Rob and the team allowed him to devote more focused time to establishing clear goals and objectives that the whole company could work towards achieving.
While Rob continues to support them on their growth journey, Ben doesn’t hesitate in recommending the service to others.
“Rob Arnold and Merranti Consulting is a very useful service and I would recommend this to other businesses. It was really beneficial to have regular meetings with an external advisor to help move things forward.”
