We drive B2B startups to success by transforming their sales and marketing into scalable results. Our hands-on team of experts works closely with you to turn strategies into real, impactful results, ensuring that your growth journey is successful and sustainable.  

Why choose the Growth Combinator?

The biggest challenge for startups is getting their sales and marketing operations up and running in time.   

This includes

  • Identifying and hiring experienced executives who have built multiple startups.

  • Developing and implementing a successful sales and marketing strategy.

  • Aligning and optimizing all key processes and structures.

  • Defining target audiences and customer personas, clear messaging and positioning.

  • Establish an inbound and outbound system to generate leads faster.

  • Build a strong sales pipeline for long-term success.

  • Create clearly structured onboarding, training, sales presentation, and sales process for the employees.

  • And many other tasks.

Since it can often take up to 12 months to find experienced leaders, a team to support them, and get everything up and running, startups often face a period of stagnation or have to rely on workarounds instead of gaining speed and utilizing the momentum.

This often leads to following consequences:

  • Significant drop in revenue
  • Loss of speed, momentum, time and money
  • Damage to the company’s reputation
  • Loss of valuable customers due to inappropriate or unprofessional approaches
  • Increased pressure on founders

To avoid these consequences and get sales and marketing up and running quickly and successfully, startups need a partner with a flexible and experienced team of experts.

Here’s where Growth Combinator comes in place – Your customized team of proven experts! 

We are here to help startups with these challenges by leveraging our experience and support as a cross-functional interim team of experts, providing all the necessary roles for as long as they are needed.

Led by our Head of Sales and Head of Marketing, we have experts in operations, lead generation, communications and marketing to support your company’s unique needs.

Get in contact and let’s find out how we could support you during your growth challenge!  

How we work
