AirTight Management is the World’s Best Leadership Operating System for Growth Companies.

We Provide Everything Needed to Scale. Saving Years.
Running a Business is Easy. Growing a Business is Hard!

We Have Decades of Experience Helping Companies Scale. AirTight is Now Installed at Over 200 Companies.

When you need the experience to scale, we are the answer. We become partners and can invest our time in your company at highly discounted rates for equity. This means your ROI is very high. We define scaling as over 25% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

No one else anywhere has the tools we have accumulated and developed since 2011 to help companies grow faster and more smoothly. With predicable results and less stress. These are curated from over 1,000 books and hundreds of experts.

Statistically, only 1 in 400 companies will ever reach $10M in sales. And 1 in 6,300 will reach $100 million in sales.
Great companies are built by excellent strategy, and thoughtful and disciplined execution. This is accomplished through structured leadership and management systems.

Every company is different, and we must have a call to understand where you are today and recommend a program.


We can double your sales, double your growth rate and/or double your P/E ratio (2 X 2 X 2 = 8) to increase your valuation by six times or more in 2-3 years. 

A company that grows at 100% for five years becomes worth 32X more!  Add a higher P/E and this can be 64X or more.


The result of this program over 6 months can often mean tens of millions higher valuations within two years and:

   a) Less dilution for owners plus much higer stock price
   b) Raising capital is easier, opening many more sources
   c) More market share faster to establish indistry dominace
   d) Attracting and keeping top people becomes easier
