Consultants from the “Big Four” consultancy firms very rarely stoop to assisting startups, given the lack of budget of smaller companies.
That being the case, Nigerian startup TBCA.ng is looking to bridge the gap, connecting on-demand independent consultants with clients that need projects completed.
All its independent consultants have experience at Big Four firms as well as the likes of Accenture and McKinsey, and TBCA encourages them to work with businesses they ordinarily would not serve.
“It dawned on me that SMEs – and some startups – need quality business advice and skills the most, but yet cannot afford it,” said project manager Jide Rotilu.
“At the same time, I had family members with startups who always asked me for assistance with strategy or business Processes transformation. In cases, where they needed tax advisory or accounting, I would ask friends in my office for their expertise. I saw that I could provide advisory services to them, and also connect them to other consultants that had skills which I did not have.”
The concept of TBCA was thus born, to help startups connect with professional consultants with real consulting experience.
“The goal has evolved to cater to SMEs and larger enterprises,” Rotilu said.
