The Sandbox is open

A Work Hard, Play Nice Approach to Consulting

Sandbox is an outcomes-focused team of finance, operating and employee consultants helping companies launch, grow and monetize their emerging businesses. Clients lean on our expertise during periods of transformation such as new business or product launches, significant revenue growth, capital raises, acquisitions and exits. Whether you are an entrepreneur starting a venture or a scaling business hiring your new team, we use inventive, out-of-the-sandbox solutions and real-life experiences to guide clients through their business milestones.

In the Sandbox, we love to get our hands dirty supporting innovative thinkers and big dreamers in achieving their goals. Collectively, we are repeat entrepreneurs, corporate refugees and reformed management consultants who believe in a creative approach to traditional consulting. Sandbox creators abide by a common-sense philosophy, offering a myriad of strategic and tactical skills with flexible pricing. 

Our commitment to our clients is always inspired by the work and mission, never the hourly rate. 

 

 

At the Nexus of Business and People Strategy


Transactional Readiness

Regardless of the transaction, we immerse ourselves in your business, often as a part-time CFO or COO to help close financial, operational or structural gaps. Our services include financial and organizational needs assessments, modeling, fundraising strategies and exit planning. We liaise with investors, oversee due diligence, negotiate terms and guide founders through the transaction closing and post transaction considerations.


Employee engagement

We believe engaging and retaining your employees is a sure way to improve your company's productivity and profitability. We work with clients to develop employee success program beginning with new hire onboarding and orientation. We partner with clients on culture assessments, communication and professional development strategies for tenured employee teams. 


 talent acquisition 

Our holistic and evolutionary approach to hiring involves four steps: source, connect, select and onboard. We don't just fill positions, we develop simple and effective strategies for attracting, sourcing, assessing, hiring and onboarding the best talent to meet our clients' business objectives.

 

 Fractional Support

In select cases, our team will provide you with fractional CFO, COO and HR support. As a deliberately small group, we limit our fractional clients to those we believe can make a transformative impact. Although these relationships would be led by a C-level partner, we take a true team approach and make sure we are tapping into the best resource at the lowest potential cost to you.


Referral Networking

We play well in the sandbox and believe in finding the right resource for the job—even if it means referring our clients and colleagues outside of the sandbox.  We continuously curate a growing list of our favorite service providers so that we can be ready to connect our clients with trusted resources.


Launch and growth Support

We assist management and investors in implementing the operational structures, financial discipline and business processes necessary to succeed through periods of rapid growth and market changes. Services include cash planning and forecasting, KPI identification, dashboard creation and ad-hoc finance and operations support.
