The Growth Compass

Analyzing the startup growth journey from an inside out organisational perspective.


Introduction to The Growth Compass

What gave you success at one development stage want work at the next

One of the key interesting things in the startup venture game is that you take in money to force rapid growth meaning faster than what is organic possible. 
In a startup, it is therefore extremely important to keep working with your organisation in order to be ahead of the curve and ready for the next development stages.
One of the trickiest parts here is the development stages and how the values are changing and competing for each step, meaning for instance what gave you success as a founder at one development stage want work at the next and you will, therefore, have to keep learning and unlearning all the time
