The Story

Founded in 2019, Ahrel & Co help ambitious tech founders, boards and leadership teams achieve their growth agenda by bringing vision and strategy to life. We thrive on creative problem solving, taking a data driven approach to growth strategy planning and execution. 

We are not like the typical strategy consultants. We’re on your team. We get into the engine room of your organisation and join your leadership team and advisory boards. We get up close and personal to make absolutely sure we help remove blockers and friction, which often gets buried in the day to day running of a business.
