Sprout Business Consulting

Welcome to Sprout Business™, helping passionate entrepreneurs and small businesses with big ideas to perfect and manifest their visions. We provide experience, relationships and support where they are most needed. Clients typically provide wellness or sustainable living (i.e. LOHAS) products and services, or are in some way making the world a better place.


Sprout Business was formed in 2004 by Benjamin Shakin, a consultant with over ten years experience in retail and business-to-business sales, marketing and business development, and over twenty years in startup, early stage and growth company management. A holistic business thinker and creative problem-solver, Benjamin is able to leverage education and diverse industry and functional experience for the benefit of his clients. Competence in all major business functions, with particular strength in business development, marketing, and integrated strategy.

Sprout Business now functions as a virtual incubator, leveraging relationships with specialists in marketing, web design, finance, fundraising, packaging & graphic design, legal & intellectual property, coaching, sustainable business practices, and more. 


Identify areas of a business where small efforts can quickly yield big results, focus on generating profitable revenue, and ensure that business strategy is consistent, sound and efficient. Take a hands-on, approach, helping get things done rather than just telling clients what to do. 

Sprout Business partners with its clients, and always finds a way to make working with them possible. Please contact us at info1@sproutbusiness.com for more information, or to schedule a no-charge, initial consultation.

We look forward to hearing your story!
