MATES ON THE MOVE: New financial model
For the first time in our five-year history, we are on track to break even. Tanarra gave us a new financial model and insights that we use daily. They pressure tested our ideas. We subsequently increased our prices and truck efficiency, reprioritised customers and changed our messaging.

MACA: Building the revenue model
'We don't come from a finance world. We now have the early modelling built to stay focused. Tanarra helped us think globally and narrow our top three big ideas. You gave us gold nuggets to propel our work for families and children. We've refined our mission, our approach and services. We're much clearer on our viability and better equipped to achieve our mission. ' Helen Lindner, CEO
SOCIAL IMPACT HUB Collaboration
"The Tanarra team did a fantastic job of providing the right balance of challenging questions and constructive feedback to our enterprises. For most of them it was the first time they'd ever been exposed to an investor in a one-on-one meeting and to have the opportunity to have a 'test' run was hugely valuable for them." Jess Roth, Founder and Director, Social Impact Hub
MANSFIELD AUTISM STATEWIDE SERVICES: Strategic advice on expansion

THE FUNDING NETWORK: growing giving in regional Australia
"Tanarra has assessed the viability of our regional and rural expansion model with a fresh set of eyes. Their expertise, observations and analysis has allowed our Board to more effectively consider its decision whether or not to invest in this substantial new program and if so, how it might execute it to maximise effectiveness." Julie McDonald, CEO The Funding Network
ACRE: Being investor ready
"We've learnt a lot from Tanarra. Their advisory role has been an enormous boost to building our capacity internally, especially with financial modelling.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia provides long-term one-to-one mentoring to help change the course of vulnerable young peoples lives. It sought Tanarra's advice as a sounding board for its proposed approach to achieving a sustainable future.
MAGGIE BEER FOUNDATION: Scaling for Impact

Wildlife Wonders Eco Tourism Enterprise
It has been invaluable to work with someone who can not only speak and translate the language of investment, but also read between the lines and help us understand the potential risks and opportunities. Tanarra's brought new credibility to the Wildlife Wonders project and helped us to a much stronger position, with a revised and achievable business plan and financial model for future success. Lizzie Corke, CEO Conservation Ecology Centre
Boosting the social media skills of charities
Tanarra Philanthropic, in partnership with The Kimberley Foundation, hosted Instagram for Good, a series of free up-skilling workshops for 8 charities. At the conclusion of the workshops every participant could demonstrate practical skills development and improvement in their social media capabilities - which ultimately enables them to raise new awareness of their cause and impact.
