The right people...For right now

The global economy faces continued headwinds, with macro challenges abroad expected to place further supply pressures on Australia’s domestic economy, culminating in an extended period of inflation and cost of living pressures. 

On the surface this doom actually has a silver-lining with  consumer demand shifting towards locally made products & services, developed through collaboration and shared resources, which presenting commercial opportunities for start-ups and established companies alike.

Supporting this shift in economic activity requires a change in mindset, re-set in strategic vision and most importantly executed by a team who are ahead of the game – which is where the Trim Tab team come in – supporting our client’s ambitions before said economic challenges become problematic. Contact us today to start your navigation.

At Trim Tab, we are firm believers that Entrepreneurship doesn’t discriminate. Good ideas, pursued by can-do attitudes, is not dependent on gender, ethnicity or socio-economic background. Granted education does play a part, but in today’s world of freely available resources, knowledge gaps can be overcome, with the right motivation.

What can’t be taught, and is often an instinctive way certain people see the world, is what we at Trim Tab call the entrepreneurial lens. To paraphrase President John F. Kennedy, ‘there isn’t a university for Presidents’ and this could be said about entrepreneurship. Sure there are some great schools teaching the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, but idea generation is a talent, and it is this talent which is the key differentiator in what Trim Tab does.

Idea generation takes a sense of optimism, creativity and dare, which conventional education often reduces, if not eliminates, as risk of transformational change is replaced by incremental improvement through good management – which is sound thinking, just not Trim Tab thinking. 

So if you are wired to lead change, have a skill-set you feel would benefit Trim Tab’s purpose and the interests of our clients, then  email us your resume with a short note on why you believe you are destined to be a Trim Tabber. We love hearing from people who believe entrepreneurship is the future…something if you’ve read this far, you believe too. 

start-ups

If the 20th century was the golden age of capitalism, then the 21st century is destined to be the age of the entrepreneur. As legacy businesses mature, tomorrow’s ideas-based economy will be built by individuals & organisations who have the foresight and passion to develop innovative products & services, which have a laser focus on benefiting their target market’s shifting preferences & tastes.

Serving this eco-system of risk takers and visionaries is what motivates the Trim Tab team to be a resource for good, by cultivating entrepreneurship across industries, that enables entrepreneurial individuals & organisational leaders to do what they do well – efficiently and sustainably – whether that be a start-up company, NFP or existing SMEs that are looking to execute intrapreneurship within their organisation to activate, and achieve, growth. 

Through Trim Tab’s multi-disciplinary team, we are able to draw upon a broad-range of skills & expertise which supports the successful entry for entrepreneurs & business leaders launching new products & services into new & existing markets. We believe third-party collaboration is fundamental to a start-up’s early stage growth trajectory, as much as it underpins & nourishes the development of the culture needed for start-ups to not only survive, but thrive.

small & medium sized Businesses

Post the Covid19 pandemic, small to medium sized businesses (SMEs) were the hardest hit, with some sectors facing an almost complete reduction of their core revenue. Often described as the engine of Australia’s economy, SMEs are now challenged by tighter labour markets and rising inflation, which is placing increasing pressure on SME margins.

These challenges have seen SMEs place greater emphasis on unlocking value through innovation, by strategically pursuing growth opportunities, when traditionally a more conservative approach would been taken. Many of these opportunities are created through collaboration and working with non-traditional partners to identify, then execute strategies which deliver growth.

Engaging a third-party to develop new products & services is the tangible value Trim Tab adds through ideation, analysis of new markets and building robust strategies focused on increased sales and profitability.

Not for profit

Not for Profits (NFPs) and Social Enterprises face increasing challenges to not only access and derive sustainable revenue for their program delivery, but also the ability to invest in modernizing their organisation’s operations.

The reality is most NFPs have to do more with less and rely on the great unknown of people’s charitable goodwill, which in the current climate of rising inflation and economic headwinds abroad, is seeing less being invested in these life-changing causes.

As part of Trim Tab’s commitment to supporting NFPs and social enterprises in delivering positive change, we offer pro bono consulting services that aim to further enable NFPs to focus on what they do well, while modernizing their operations and growing their program capacity.
