At GrowthWorks, we believe that we can enable positive impact on the world by removing the lines between business and the community.

 

So, we created an organization that is not compartmentalized but operates with a higher purpose in mind, an organization that aspires to becoming an influential and positive citizen of the business world, the economy and our communities.

 

We bring a sense of empathy into understanding human motivations and needs, and what makes people happy and fulfilled. We then translate that into products, services, and messages that impart joy.

A LITTLE HISTORY

All leaders of our firm started at classical consumer products "training" companies. They then moved into consulting, in both boutique and larger firm settings, becoming experts in strategy and innovation.

 

After selling his firm Arbor Strategy Group in 2008, our founder, Phil Roos, focused his energy on conservation projects and building a new economy, both regionally and nationally. He began providing advice and strategic insight to organizations involved in these areas from large corporations to emerging companies and non-profits. 

 

What began as solo and small team projects expanded and evolved into GrowthWorks, a firm dedicated to bringing growth and innovation to everyone we work with through a better understanding of the forces disrupting our world.
