OUR
SERVICES

Not traditional consulting, which architects and advises, Grove makes solutions move, because our social change pioneers have launched winning initiatives before. Not incubation, which supports stand-alone start-ups, Grove helps the leaders of powerhouse organizations leverage their platforms.
