Sometimes people approach us at Crisp, and ask if we would consider starting a subsiduary in country X or Y.
We normally respond with something like “Sounds cool! But we are a Stockholm company and don’t want the hassle of running a multinational corporation, not unless we see a clear and strong benefit (and we haven’t so far). But if you like our model, feel free to just go ahead and start up a Crisp-like company in your city. Here is how we work, copy & adapt as you like, there is no reason for our two companies to be statically and legally linked together. We’re just happy to see the ideas spread.”
About a year ago Sandy Mamoli came from a long way (New Zealand) and visited the Crisp office to discuss our model. Actually,we’ve bumped into each other at a number of conferences around the world, sharing ideas discussing different ways of running consulting organizations.
Now she’s gone ahead and done it: started a company based on the Crisp model. Way cool! Looking forward to seeing how it works out, and maybe stealing some ideas back as they evolve our concept 🙂
