VentureBean is one of our key learning partners for over two years that delivered SKF Leadership Foundation, a key global programme as part of our Leadership maturity model for new managers. It has been a very rich and rewarding experience for us to partner with VentureBean. Sharing of personal triumphs, trials, and tribulations across different Leadership roles in Corporates helps to connect with participants and their reality with ease. They have a unique style of illustrating the concepts and dilemmas managers face in this program with simplicity, patience, and rare authenticity. What is more pleasurable in working with VentureBean is that they have gone beyond the contract and commercial terms, investing much more, co-owning the program in the same measure as us. That makes us feel that we are indeed working with a learning partner.
Leaving my corporate job after 25 years, I wanted to start something new. With nothing more than a good idea, I approached Mathew to help me navigate this new phase. I soon realised that the start- up journey is first about building the mindset of an entrepreneur and then working on the technical aspects. Mathew was an immense help as he patiently took on the role of a coach as I was searching for more clarity on what I wanted. Once my ideas got crystallised, Mathew took on the role of a consultant, helping me plan, strategise and implement my ideas. In addition to being a great Coach and Consultant, Mathew is extremely motivating and encouraging and is very generous with his time and advice. I would without hesitation recommend Mathew and VentureBean.
I’ve known Mathew since 2018 when I had the privilege of being coached by him. Mathew was on board to coach the India leadership team with a view to enhance the productivity and effectiveness. Mathew is a man of few words and spares no room on providing feedback and areas for improvement. As a coach, Mathew assessed the strengths of each individual in the leadership team and would spend time to help to identify areas that would help the overall team to succeed His strengths lie in understanding the lay of the land quickly and holding us accountable for actions with speed to drive results. He worked with me on few areas that helped me to strengthen my influencing skills by identifying stakeholders beyond peers, who can help me in building my business further and succeed. Mathew brings in vast experience on to the table and having worked across the globe in various industries he is able to relate to the needs of business and help the leadership drive actions aligned to strategic imperatives for the organization. I wish Mathew all the best!
I have worked closely with Mathew over the last 4 years. I have personally benefitted with his association. He was my Executive Coach. This was at a time when there were many operational issues in the ongoing global business and in parallel we were working on a major JV opportunity; this required balancing strategic thinking and at the same time taking care of the nitty-gritties of the ongoing business. Mathew helped me to put a plan in place and to crystallise my thought process. We worked on identifying blind spots and put a systematic plan to address them. He was always available and was a great sounding board when I needed it. Mathew is a great human being and he has helped me beyond the coaching assignment. I admire the way he gives back to the society through his philanthropic work. I strongly recommend Mathew.
Being a startup in a very niche market space (specialty coffee in India), the VentureBean team created great value for us with the experience they brought to our table. Our goal was to take our product online and increase visibility in our current market segment as well as new untapped segments. VentureBean guided us to establish the ideal marketing mix, understand our audience better through segmentation, targeting and positioning, and establish a strong go-to-market strategy. As advised by Venturebean, we have focused on B2B2C channels to increase our reach, which has worked very well for us. We would highly recommend them for startups who have a strong and tested product in their arsenal but need guidance and vision in the departments of marketing, business processes and finance and accounting.
We are very fortunate to be engaged with the VentureBean team. They help us with many business areas from Business Planning, Marketing Strategies and Business Development, Business Planning, Finance, and MIS to Logistics and Imports. They have vast knowledge and expertise in various fields and most importantly, they are always willing to take on new challenges in new fields and we are never disappointed. They are sharp, reliable, and trustworthy
Before working with VentureBean, we were facing a few issues: • We needed clarity. We needed to understand who our customers were, what customer segments we wanted to target, how to target them. • We also wanted to understand what our best pricing options were. • We wanted to define effective organisation Structure and Implement the process across the organisation. The impact of our lack of clarity was that we didn’t know how to increase our profits. We didn’t know what we were trying to achieve, where to focus our resources, efforts, time and money, which is really key when you’re a SMB. VentureBean clarified things for us, giving us a sense of direction and clear advice. We knew we had something to work with, a clear action plan. We enjoyed working with VentureBean because they are very good at what they do - really understanding SMBs. Very practical suggestions, practicing what they preach, very clear, very supportive and very nice folks to work with. I also liked that the fact that we could go to them and bounce off new ideas. VentureBean understands the big picture and their advice goes beyond marketing, business development into all aspects of business including operations, Finance and Governance.
Our association with VentureBean started out at a time when we were finding growth a challenge. Since then, over a two-year period, we have more than doubled our revenues and have streamlined many of our operations. The Management Support, handholding in execution, rigour in Governance, streamlining of Business Processes has brought more clarity and conviction on the path ahead, strengthening our business and people processes for our next growth phase. Mathew is working with me and my leadership team as an Executive Coach, helping us identify areas of improvement in a leadership roles as we work on building the second line of leadership in our business scaling plans
We have been associated with VentureBean for over 5 years now. They have helped us scale our business – revenues tripled, profitability improved, portfolio of products expanded, geographical reach pan-India and South East Asia, customer base expanded to include multiple segments. VentureBean works closely with our team guiding on every aspect of business and in strengthening our team. Ownership and value are their key strengths. We are very thankful for their assistance and highly recommend VentureBean for businesses which are looking to grow, scale
Team VentureBean - Thank you for the detailed final report. This was definitely a fruitful and fulfilling engagement, which helped me in understanding the areas where I have to focus/concentrate on. Thanks for your open and transparent feedback, which should help us move forward.
VentureBean Consulting provided advisory inputs to the management at Moolya and helped structure things better in the company. We recommend VentureBean for all SMBs who need to feel confident about themselves.
Fynd would like to put on record our thanks and appreciation for the wonderful working experience and all the support we have had from the VentureBean team since our association began in July 2015. Your promptness, professionalism, knowledge of the subject, and your flexibility have been some of the salient highlights of our relationship. Not to mention your friendliness and openness to any ideas and suggestions from our side. We have always trusted your judgment, and will continue to do so. We look forward to a long and mutually worthwhile business association with VentureBean and look to your team as partners in our unravelling growth story.
It’s been a very positive and professional experience with the VentureBean team, as they connect with our team and understand our processes quickly. Their domain knowledge is adding great value to our entrepreneurial ecosystem at JGI. Highly recommend their services as results will be exceptional.
