I have worked with Grant for a few years during which he was a consultant to my business. As a result of his input along with other members of his team we have made some strategic decisions that have resulted in significant changes to our Company. Grant was instrumental in helping me make these decisions and talking through the implications of change (and also of NOT doing anything). He takes a great lead in mentoring and is not afraid to ask the hard questions without deviating from his encouragement of better management practices. He has been a great change catalyst for my business.

I have worked with Grant both in his role in MGI and in Exousia he has done a number of excellent valuations for my clients and at a very reasonable rate. I enjoy working with Grant because he is intuitive and extremely professional. Clients enjoy his friendly and approachable manner. He creates valuation models that are totally applicable for angel investment and early stage VC a very difficult area to work in. I could not recommend anyone more to work on a team to create a deal you always know that he will deliver on time and on budget something every company appreciates.
