Growthink helps entrepreneurs become more successful. Since 1999, we have helped over 500,000 entrepreneurs to successfully start, grow and/or exit their companies.


Growthink’s mission is to help all entrepreneurs succeed so they can create jobs, grow economies, offer customers better products and services, realize great personal satisfaction and wealth, and fund programs that make the world a better place.


In 1999, at the height of the Internet bubble, Growthink co-founders and serial entrepreneurs Dave Lavinsky and Jay Turo graduated with their MBAs from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management. At that time, Lavinsky and Turo identified an interesting opportunity; thousands of businesspeople wanted to launch Internet ventures, but they didn’t know how to start, finance and build them.


So, Lavinsky and Turo used their market research, finance, and small business backgrounds plus their recently gained MBA skills and mentalities to systematically help these entrepreneurs succeed. Since that time, Lavinsky and Turo have built Growthink’s team, client base, and service and product offerings in pursuit of their mission of helping all entrepreneurs succeed.
