Strategic Growth Plan
Project: COMACO had recently been approached by the Norwegian Investment Fund for Developing Countries (Norfund, www.norfund.no) which invests in the establishment and development of profitable and sustainable enterprises in developing countries. Norfund was interested in investing in COMACO’s for-profit activities. The SGE Immersion team worked with COMACO to clarify the financials associated with their food business – both individually by product, and collectively as a business unit – to develop a five-year strategic growth plan for the organization that could be presented to potential investors, including Norfund. This required the team to clearly delineate between COMACO’s for-profit and non-profit activities to develop a financing plan that would charter COMACO’s ideas for growth around particular products and markets to reach a $10 million annual turnover.
