When it comes to start-ups, HARSAV Group understands that the success of the business, no matter how small or big, cannot depend on the ideas alone and requires in-depth knowledge and expertise to take a business to the next level.
BP Consulting (est. 2018) is an Energy Management Consultancy based in the North East, specialising in helping organisations better manage their ongoing energy costs.
Despite having an adequate business model and ambitious leaders driving the business, their turnover did not reflect the opportunities that were presented in the market, with wage bills and other expenses significantly diminishing any kind of profit margin they had.
In Spring 2019, BP Consulting recognised that receiving investment into the company would bring copious benefits that would amplify and facilitate the growth of the business.
Seeking the most appropriate investor for their needs, BP Consulting connected with HARSAV Group. HARSAV Group recognised BP Consulting was still in the early-stages of development and a growth-focused strategy could have a substantial impact on the business. To date, they have proved to be HARSAV Group’s greatest investment story so far, taking a business that was struggling financially and transforming it in to a well-oiled and disciplined organisation that now has over 250 customers!
People have always said to me that you need to take risks to reap the rewards in business, with HARSAV Group supporting us every way in our strategic approach, I would not have predicted that we would move from 1 employee and an annual turnover of just over £100,000, to forecasting having a team of 20 within 2 years of the business being established and over £1 million turnover by 2025.
Extremely grateful for all the work HARSAV Group has put in to transform BP Consulting and I am looking forward to the future opportunities this partnership will present.”
