About Us

Investors challenge boards to deliver high quality earnings and strong growth within a sustainable framework. CORPGRO achieves effective, investor friendly results by thinking beyond compliance. When explanation is needed, we step firmly into that mode, and frame policies and disclosures which are strong and clear to investors and other stakeholders.

About corgro

  • Human ambition is unlimited. The resources of the Earth are not.
  • Creating a strong sustainable business is one need, a step change in how knowledge is created, deployed, and shared is another.
  • The implications are vast. Resetting the economic framework to address poor partnering, trapped knowledge, dead incentives and unchecked externalities is needed.
  • While easy to say, not easy to do. It involves creative thinking, accepting risk and a clear, logical statement of intent.
  • CORPGRO’S purpose is to help companies grow markedly but in a sustainable, fair way, using our expertise in human resources, investor expectations, rewards and incentives.
