Client: Growthink, Inc.


Challenge: This FINRA licensed investment banking and strategic consulting firm required outside assistance in managing and fulfilling client engagements.

Solution: Black Rock Consulting’s founder was engaged as a consultant in April 2004 and completed more than 45 projects on the firm’s behalf accounting for in excess of $1 million in revenue. In addition, clients under his supervision raised more than $2 million in capital funding as a result of the strength of his business plans and investor-facing materials.

“Jonathan Ross and I have worked together on more than 40 client engagements. Jonathan is consistently conscientious, professional and thorough. I have always been impressed with Jonathan’s ability to balance multiple project responsibilities and tight timelines and deliver high-quality, creative work each and every time. I recommend him highly.”
