Supporting The Journey of an Entrepreneur
Mark Ramadan was in college when he co-founded Sir Kensington’s (Sir K’s), a condiment company with the mission of bringing integrity and charm to ordinary and overlooked food. Within a few years, Sir K’s was poised to close a $2.5M seed round of funding. Mark knew Sir K’s finance and accounting needed more sophistication. He wanted to organize his financials, improve cash flow, and gain better insights into his company. He turned to Propeller, which supported Mark and Sir K’s through its eventual acquisition by Unilever. By working together, they forged a trusted bond that held as he continued his entrepreneurial adventure.
Post-acquisition, Mark was brought in as CEO of Hu, a chocolate and snacking company on a mission to help everyone get back to human by combining unbeatable taste with ultrasimple ingredients. This was a more mature business prepared for big growth. In order to take Hu to the next level, he again needed a financial partner that could handle the rigors of establishing processes and best practices. Propeller was, and still is, that partner.
“Since we had the right systems and processes in place and an experienced partner like Propeller at Sir K’s, I could focus on other areas of the business that led to our growth and our ultimate sale. As I began my CEO role at Hu, Propeller was one of my first calls.”
“I remember having many meetings with Propeller, trying to think through the right way to build an investor-ready model. The experience that the team brought definitely put us on much firmer footing for talking through the numbers and feeling confident that the plan we put in front of a professional investor was acceptable.”
