What We Do

Applied Value is a world-class management consulting and investment firm that brings a Lean Growth philosophy to building value for our clients, investments, and society. Each part of our practice improves the others: we apply an owner-operator perspective with clients and leverage business expertise to identify and optimize investments. Those same Lean Growth principles create impact beyond profit.

Every single day we go to work we should feel deep commitment to our customers, fellow colleagues, and those we serve through NGOs

Generously share financial success with those who need it most

Our History

Our story begins in 1997 with founders Bruce Grant and his long-time partner Jan Stenbeck, head of the Stockholm-based Kinnevik Group. Tired of working with consultants who delivered presentations but never results, Stenbeck turned to Grant in pursuit of a better way – consultancy driven by financial value and tangible impact. Tasked with this ideal, Grant founded Applied Value as a part-external, part-internal management consultancy focused on expedient solutions and a commitment to return on investment.

Group Executive Chairman

Today, Applied Value carries out our founders’ vision as a fully independent boutique management consultancy, investment, and social impact firm. Operating out of offices around the world, we offer clients the global perspective of an international firm coupled with the tailored, value-oriented approach that makes up our DNA.

Our clients include the world’s largest and most innovative companies and span a wide variety of industries from Automotive and Industrials to Telecommunications and Technology. Across industries and specialties, we target core business issues and engage clients with an unbiased, action-oriented approach.


Applying Lean Growth principles to large corporations, small companies, and start-ups as well as NGOs to create financial value – it works every time.
