The Good Growth Co.
Leveraging expert knowledge for the greater good
Who We Are
Good Growth is a network of specialists helping high-impact organizations solve their bottlenecks and scale their impact
We help organizations solve their problems, save time and increase their impact through the DOTS cycle.
Design & Deploy
We help organizations identify and test hypotheses to scale their current products and programs. We bring in a "growth SWAT team" to help orgs run pilots, before having to invest in new talent and systems.
With pilots implemented and data flowing in, we streamline the process and institute the proper systems and documentation for low cost knowledge transfer.
Talent & Training
Using the processes we set up, we train up organizations' teams to be able to independently run the project. We may also acquire external talent that would be an ideal fit.
We facilitate communication internally and externally to users, funders and community members by improving the strategy and creating content (pitch decks, websites...)
We source and onboard the right people for your project

"We needed to test out the market in Hong Kong, and Good Growth understood both our mission - effective altruism - and the context we needed to operate in, the Hong Kong startup scene.
Jah Ying is diligent, efficient and a strong leader. Good Growth opened up their network to us, and helped realise our launch night.
If you're a small, lean, and results-focused orgs like us, give the team a try."
