Applied Value Group
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.
Our Business Areas
We invest in high-potential companies and apply the same best practices as we do for our consulting clients.
We take a fact-based approach to helping our clients while emphasizing focus, simplicity and speed.
We create value beyond profit by dedicating time, talent, and treasure to mission-driven organizations.
What We Believe
We believe every company has a mission to fulfil. Ours is to create sustainable financial impact to the benefit of our consulting clients, companies we have acquired, and NGOs we support. Every single day we go to work we should feel deep commitment to our customers, fellow colleagues, and those we serve through NGOs
Commit tirelessly to results
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.
