The Cultivate Journey
We're not corporate consultants
At Cultivate, we believe in offering small business owners a custom plan for their business. Every owner has unique challenges, experience and goals, and we are passionate about helping owners develop both personally and professionally to achieve financially rewarding businesses that grow and thrive.
We’ve worked with thousands of businesses around the world in over 200 different industries and helped them grow on average 65% in revenue and 108% in profit. Our advisors are more than a coach or consultant, they truly become a partner, not taking any equity but instead getting into the trenches with you and working on a growth plan and cadence that’s customized to your ever-changing needs as you scale.
Where We Started
Where We Started
Building Our Team
We began expanding our team with Advisors in Chicago, Green Bay, Denver, Phoenix, Toronto, and Vancouver. All of our advisors come from different industries with different experiences, but the one thing they have in common is that they’ve all run a small business. It was important to us that Cultivate was built on owners because anyone that has run a business knows you can’t relate unless you’ve done it.

Building Our Culture
We’re always developing
Our advisors undergo a rigorous training program with over 220 hours of training in year 1 to continue improving their skills in all areas of the business.
With clients and advisors across North America, it’s important for us to maintain tight-knit relationships despite the distance. We grow our culture through weekly huddles on Zoom, bi-annual in-person training, and fun socials.
We’re Industry Agnostic
All of our advisors have been business owners in the past. Many of our advisors have come from a franchising background and others have started, built and sold businesses in a past life. As a team, we have worked/advised in over 180 industries from home service to hospitality to creative agencies. And if there is one thing that our experience has taught us, it’s that small business owners don’t need more industry knowledge, they need the core business skills to help them move the needle in their business.
We Put Clients First
We’re constantly learning and collaborating with each other to solve problems for our clients. Each week our advisors get together in small groups to get multiple heads on a challenge for their clients. Often our advisors bring other advisors from the team to help support the relationship when specific specialties are needed.
To Empower Entrepreneurs
Since 2013, we’ve partnered with 1000+ passionate small business owners to bring accountability, outside experience, and expert guidance to help them build custom systems and gain the skills and confidence to take their business to the next level.
Over the last three years, Cultivate has grown by over 600%, landing us on the Inc 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies two years in a row, and we’re just getting started. We’re in a period of explosive growth and we’re looking for people to join the team who are as excited as we are to partner with committed entrepreneurs in propelling their businesses beyond expectations.
