Pace and rate of disruption today call for new models of growth
Manifold, a venture holding company, is shaking up the traditional consulting model and will now house an advisory firm, venture fund, and incubation studio all under one roof. The news comes as Manifold brings together its talent, resources, capital, and connections from Digital Intent and Founder Equity to ensure continued growth for its clients and partners.
"In the modern economy, all companies must disrupt to survive," said Joe Dwyer, Founding Partner of Manifold. "However, many companies who know how to operate a known business model don’t know how to build a new one."
Traditional models for Advisory firms are no longer sufficient to effectively drive growth for enterprise partners. Business analysis and advice – once the hallmarks of long-standing client engagements – lack the underpinnings of operational expertise required to execute swiftly and with precision.
Enterprises today must combine visionary analysis, clever use of capital, and high caliber operational expertise to compete with nimble teams that are galvanized around industry disruption. The same consultancies sought out by enterprises to answer their most pressing growth challenges are typically more adept at working within known business models and lack the experience with nascent or burgeoning models.
Manifold’s entrepreneurial team leverages operating expertise and capital more often found in emerging organizations and ecosystems, and its clients and partners benefit from a flywheel effect driven by the firm’s breadth of talent, resources, capital, and connections with companies at all stages of maturity.
"We deliver growth by pulling together experienced entrepreneurs, senior consultants, technology experts, accomplished venture capitalists, and experienced coaches," explained John Sviokla, Senior Partner of Manifold Advisory. "Put another way, we are a team of professionals who have successfully started, built, and grown organizations before. So we know what works, and what does not."
Headquartered in Chicago, Manifold is a venture holding company combining an advisory firm, venture fund, and incubation and acceleration studio all under one roof. With expertise in driving growth for companies at all stages of maturity, transforming legacy businesses, and new venture identification and scaling, Manifold is a modern platform for perpetual value creation.
