About this book

Know how your company can accelerate growth by not only tapping into new growth vectors, but also by adapting its organization, culture, and processes.
To oversee growth from an idea to a company with billions in revenue, CEOs must reinvent many aspects of their company in anticipation of it reaching ever-higher revenues. Author Peter Cohan takes you through the four stages of scaling: winning the first customers, building a scalable business model, sprinting to liquidity, and running the marathon.

  • Use the Scaling Quotient to assess your startup's readiness to grow
  • Follow a road map for turning your idea into a company that can change the world
