Startups Vs Scaleups: Are You Doing It Wrong?


Join leaders in Boston on March 27 for an exclusive night of networking, insights, and conversation. Request an invite here.

In a new book on entrepreneurship, “Growth Levers and How to Find Them,” Matt Lerner writes: “Great startups don’t waste time on small stuff, so we can focus everyone on the most impactful work.”

In this week’s CarCast, Bruno Aziza and Lerner break this concept down. The key principles:

1) Why some startups succeed and others fail;

2) The pitfalls and dysfunctions of OKRs;

3) The patterns of startup failure;

4) The most important stages of a customer journey;

5) Mindset shifts: Discovery vs. optimization

This advice will be helpful if you’re an ENTRE-preneur — and also if you’re an INTRA-preneur.
