About Us

Message from the Principal

tricia 01 (1)Firstly, I want to extend a sincere thank you for visiting our website. I realize that you could have chosen any of the more prominent consulting firms yet you chose us; and for this I’m very grateful. We are essentially a firm that is dedicated to improving the viability of small businesses, and actively making a positive impact through our the work that we do. It is no secret that the failure rate of small businesses in our country to date is alarming. That said, one aspect of our mission is to help more existing small businesses improve their overall sustainability via the management consulting services that we offer.

The other aspect of our mission that has become increasingly important to me being a proud Babson College MBA is start-up development. At TLE Consulting Group, we work with area innovation centers, technical assistance providers, and business development centers through our entrepreneurial design and facilitation services to help entrepreneurs launch and scale their ventures. We also offer our signature pre-accelerator program where entrepreneurs conduct market research and over the course of twelve weeks to develop a solid business model for their ventures or special projects.

All in all, community involvement and social responsibility to us is not an afterthought. It is at the core of everything we do to create more social and economic value for the communities that we live in and serve. I encourage you to browse our website, read about our exciting business, and learn more about what we can do for your business.
