Our Story

Grassroots Consulting has been a pillar of Palm Beach County since 2001. Grassroots has taken extreme measures to be recognized as a comprehensive consulting firm whose mission is to ensure small businesses, non-profit organizations, and underserved communities have professional, prompt, and precise services.

In our initial start-up phase, we dedicated hundreds of hours answering questions referring to effective business start-up plans and providing local business owners with information regarding the for-profit and non-profit sector.

In October 2006, Grassroots realized it was imperative to formally register our corporation as an entity that provides services in and around Palm Beach County. Our business profile has numerous minority certifications on a local, Tri-County, and State level.

Currently, our foot print services all 50 states and the surrounding areas.

GCI is a consulting firm that provides services in the areas of technical assistance, training and development, multifaceted workshops, and other services that challenge individuals and organizations to be the best in their business in the Spirit of Excellence.
