Frank & the Backs


Frank & The Backs supports scale-ups with seasoned entrepreneurs and C-level executives. Together we overcome all critical hurdles to successfully execute a sustainable growth strategy. We start with a thorough understanding of your challenges and select the best possible business executives/specialists for you. Together with you the executive develops a plan with clear KPI's. Then the Back starts to work with your team on reaching the agreed upon goals.


42% of the Scale-ups are suffering from slow sales, and 29% have cash problems. This is partly caused by lacking the right experience within the team.

What is in for you?

With hands-on experience, Frank and the Backs helps scale-ups to solve these problems. We provide you with a seasoned businessperson (a Back) with over 20 years of relevant experience, with a C-level background.


Our network consists of 400 Backs with general management experience and specific skills in for example; business development, legal, finance and logistics using their extensive network ranging from B2B, B2C to government relations.
