The Wisconsin SBDC Network has certified GrowthWheel® consultants throughout the state.

GrowthWheel® is a tool for decision-making in start-up and growth companies. It helps business advisors and entrepreneurs get focus, set agenda, make decisions, and take action.




GrowthWheel is a visual toolbox for decision-making and action planning for start-up and growth companies.


It helps entrepreneurs build their businesses through a simple action-oriented process that stays true to the way most entrepreneurs think and work.


For the business advisor and clients, the absolute flexibility of the toolbox means that it can be fully adapted to existing advisory tools and client needs.


360° Perspective Made Simple
Everything about business in one single toolbox.


GrowthWheel was designed around the observation that all businesses – in all industries and life stages – have four lasting challenges in common: They must create an attractive Business Concept, build a strong Organization behind it, develop lasting Client Relations, and do so while maintaining profitable Operations.


All Business Decisions Made Visual
Faster understanding. More inspiration. Better communication.


The GrowthWheel tools create a better experience for the entrepreneur because visual tools change the conversation. They make it easier to understand a challenge, they inspire creativity, and conclusions are easy to communicate to outsiders.


The recognizable graphic design in GrowthWheel is used across topics as different as product design, recruitment, or financing. Making everything seem equally simple and easy to deal with.


Decision-Making Made Practical
Set agenda. Make decisions. Take action.


Every tool in GrowthWheel is designed to work independently. The selected tool can be placed on the meeting table, on the wall, or even shown on a hand held computer device, and the business conversation can begin instantly.


All tools are designed with a suggestion box outlining the intention of the tool, the proposed process using the tool and the suggested Next Steps having reached a decision. The entrepreneur or advisor can choose to follow the GrowthWheel suggestions or use the tools their own way.
