Our Story

Business Sherpa Group was founded in 2008 by Margo Crawford after she felt the need firsthand for backend operations support for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

She believed then, and we still believe today, that the size of an organization shouldn’t limit its potential.

From the beginning, Business Sherpa Group has been dedicated to providing SMEs access to the same quality of resources that larger organizations have. 

The key was to provide the support with an embedded and flexible approach so that it was attainable, practical, and sustainable for SMEs. 

Supporting SMEs continues to be the purpose of Business Sherpa Group’s existence. We have proudly supported over 550 clients (and counting!).
