Hi, I’m Darren Lawes

An Entrepreneur, Investor and Start up founder

Since I was a kid I’ve had a love and fascination with Business, I would always have something on the go, painting neighbours houses or maintaining their gardens or manufacturing Rabbitt hutches.

I should of persued this further after school but bowed to pressure to ‘get a job’.  

This lead me to enginering and manufacturing, to Unilever at Colmans mustard where I learned how Unilever turns around and optimises businesses.  

I took this knowledge into my first ‘real business’ and grew a property portfolio to £5m in just under 2 years.

Effectively retired before I was 30.  

Unfortunately I had a business partner that wasn’t being very honest and long story short lost it all.  

This lead me back to Manufacturing as a ‘hired gun’ problem solver for some of the worlds biggest companies whilst also working on my own projects.  

Today I use the knowledge from how the biggest manufacturers ensure results to help Engineering and Manufacturing Businesses over £1m in revenue to grow their companies and scale to enable an exit if they want one.  

By reverse engineering what a successful and saleable business looks like.   

Uncovering the hurdles that are holding back that growth.  

I go into more detail on my history and how to generate these results on this website and in my podcast.
