Unleash the wild growth
We're on a mission to make the business world a part of a healthy nature. To make that happen, we have created a holistic business design innovation, the Wild Growth Model©. It guides balanced growth by ensuring that all parts of the business are correctly interlinked and that resources circulate optimally through four elements of natural growth:
An organic seed is charged with five growth dimensions: A tree will grow vertically up towards the sky and down below the ground, spread its branches and roots horizontally while constantly keeping it's core still. In this model, we switch the traditional linear growth thinking in business to the organic 5D logic.
"Light, air, water and soil"
Clear goals boost growth like the sunlight does to a plant. Planning and executing tangible actions act like a soil, supporting the growth towards the goals. Business KPI's represent the element of nourishing water, as the energy flows where attention goes. And as a tree turns CO2 into oxygen from the air, your business can turn someone's problems into new solutions. Recognizing and activating these elements will start the growth organically.
"The organism from roots to leaves"
The internal parts from back-end to front-end are referred to a tree to help understand, interlink and balance each operative action. Resources (roots), Governance (trunk), Channels (branches), Branding and communication (leaves), Sales and marketing (flowers), Products and services (fruit) and Scaling (seeds) create a whole that is aligned to keep you and your business healthy and stress-free.
To spread wider to new areas, a species needs support from its ecosystem. The same applies for a business. In this section we make sure that it is surrounded by the right stakeholders. We finish the holistic business design by mapping the best suitable market areas, how to reach symbiotic partners and target groups as well as differentiate from competitors.

Average client review
The ecosystem level of thinking about Abraca's framework is the main reason why I reached out. As a person, I believe in the interconnectedness of us all. However, in business, I was struggling to articulate how to create holistic growth for the entire ecosystem and my beneficiaries. The business plan framework has been very helpful in understanding this interconnectedness and set foundations for a healthy and maybe, even wild growth!
