Gradwell provides industry-leading software, connectivity and professional services that enable businesses to communicate. Find out why they came to us to attract capital for its growth.
Founder and CEO Peter Gradwell needed to articulate his vision for the business by developing a rigorous business plan and financial model, to attract capital investment for growth.
We worked with Peter to explore his objectives for the business, to understand where he wanted to take it and what he wanted to achieve. We also determined Peter’s personal objectives. We then got to work with putting a plan together that would see him fulfil his goals.
We worked with Peter and the team at Gradwell to understand the mathematics behind the business, linking this tightly to the business plan to fully plot where growth would come from, when and how much.
We have worked with Gradwell Communications to complete two deals since we began working with them. First to secure private equity backing from Altitude in 2012, and then by Chiltern Capital in 2017. Following Gradwell's exceptional growth, in 2017 Peter was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year Award at Insider South West’s 42 Under 42 dinner.
“I have worked with the team at Shaw & Co for more than five years now, they advised me on both the 2012 investment by Altitude and the latest deal with Chiltern. They have been an outstanding long term partner to me and the business. Their advice has been invaluable, and they have been a great support in my decision-making every step of the way."
For ambitious owner-managers trying to grow their business, Shaw & Co’s offering is tailor made."
