The Valen Group is a strategy consulting, innovation and licensing firm that helps companies develop topline growth through new products, new markets and new platforms. Our methods uniquely combine experience working for well-known organizations with experience in entrepreneurship.
The Valen Group was founded in 2001 by Gus Valen with a mission to help leaders tackle growth challenges and identify innovation opportunities. Mr. Valen provides strong leadership to clients with his broad viewpoint of how to profitably manage topline growth. His experience stems from working with large companies to develop best practices and small fast growing businesses with an entrepreneurial spirit.
Our firm is comprised of individuals who are passionate about planning, identifying and executing growth and innovation. We are equally comfortable working with well-known companies as well as smaller, entrepreneurial organizations. We train our staff on our proprietary problem-solving methods, rooted in fact-based analysis, critical insight and the right amount of creative thinking necessary to quickly and systematically solve complex problems enabling clients to capitalize on market opportunities.
Working with Clients
We begin every engagement with an understanding
of the business issues at hand. We customize
each approach to a client issue and draw
from a variety of sources (our proprietary
strategy methodologies, knowledge bases,
industry and consulting experiences, and
thought leadership sources) to develop the
final engagement proposal.
Through Team Integration
Our philosophy on longevity in the consulting
business is to deliver one successful engagement
at a time. That success hinges on identifying
each client’s unique organizational
structure, team skills, attitudes and beliefs,
risks and perceptions of what they need
from a strategy consultant. We craft a team
structure that fits the needs of the client
for that engagement.
