It’s why I get out of bed every single morning, other than coffee.
Every week I get to go to some fascinating places. From pet-food production facilities to plastic molders, quantum computer labs, schools, hotels, fruit-cutting plants – you name it, we’ve been to one. Every business is completely different – they all make different things, have different equipment, and have different business objectives.
But they all have one goal in common. Growth.
Some businesses want to buy a new machine that will multiply their capacity tenfold, some want to run a new marketing campaign, and others just need more sales reps. But, in every case they’re trying to grow their business. When asked “If I gave you $100,000 – how would you grow your business?” almost everyone knows exactly what they would do (myself included).
Well – you’re in luck – I’ll give you that $100K. In fact, I might give you more than that. It’s not complicated, it’s not a new idea, and it’s not used nearly as often as it should be.
When people ask me what Kambo does, I don’t talk about energy efficiency, I don’t talk about lighting retrofits or new boilers, I don’t even talk about energy at all. I talk about the two most important words in business **cash flow**. Cash flow is the heart-beat of a business and its health determines whether or not you make that investment in growing your business.
If I can give you cash flow, I can help you grow your business.
How can I give you cash flow? OK – now we do need to talk a little bit about energy.
Energy prices and therefore utility bills are going up and that trend is going to continue for the foreseeable future. Unless, of course, you invest in energy efficient technology that reduces the amount of energy your business needs. That’s where we come in. Kambo identifies, calculates, installs, and validates opportunities to cut your energy bills for the long term – and we’re damn good at it.
With our proprietary building assessment and energy modelling software we accurately forecast before and after costs from an energy efficiency upgrade. Our entire business is built on our ability to forecast (and verify) future energy costs. We’re accountable for delivering cash flow to your business – it’s all we do, and it’s beautiful.
Sounds expensive, right? Well – the good news is, we’re so confident in your reduced energy bills that we’ll finance the cost of upgrading with the cash flow they generate. It’s common that a project will generate more monthly cash flow than the cost of financing – when that happens it’s a beautiful thing. Positive cash flow from day one. You can improve your building, provide a better work environment, reduce your energy dependency, take action on your sustainability goals, avoid maintenance costs, and it will give you positive cash flow from day one. Win-win-win-win-win-win. I love winning.
So – use that cash flow to grow your sales team, boost your marketing budget, or whatever else will help you grow your business.
The alternative? Keep giving more of your hard earned money to the utility. I know which I’d rather do.
