Fuel pairs startup experts with McKinsey’s deep industry and functional expertise and global network. We help startups and their investors accelerate growth through flexible consulting approaches designed to deliver the future faster.Get Started
We help companies with their growth needs in flexible sprints of 2, 4, 6 or 8 weeks (and beyond), depending on the needs. We pair dedicated teams with access to our network of McKinsey and external experts. Our approach to consulting ensures you get actionable results.
We tailor the scope to what can realistically be achieved given the time horizon and budget. For example, for use case prioritization, we don’t do deep dives on 20 use cases when 2-5 may be all that can realistically be addressed with near-term product and sales capabilities
We access experts from our 20+ industry and 60+ functional practices, and pair them with our over 150+ consultants with startup experience so you get deep sector, functional, and startup insight no matter your stage of growth or need
Startups need practical recommendations focused on execution. We get down to brass tacks, including helping write sales pitches for new use cases, detailing customer-specific price transition plans, or providing on-going implementation support
We maintain our objective and fact-based approach, providing you with the robust ‘outside-in’ perspective that helps align management teams and investors on your biggest levers for growth
