Business Strategy

Founders Consulting works directly with firm owners and organization leaders to set business goals and develop plans to achieve them. We bring a broad perspective from our work with dozens of industries and practice areas and bring an entrepreneurial perspective to larger businesses, as well as to nonprofit ventures, associations and government agencies. Our strategy consulting team includes subject matter experts from George Mason University, hand selected for each assignment.

We develop practical action plans with measurable results – usually at a fraction of the cost of larger, more overhead-dependent consulting firms. The result is immediate and long-term cost savings and the opportunity for real future growth.
