Early Stage Investment Series - Building for growth workshop

Building for Growth - our 5th Early Stage Investment Series workshop co-hosted with AANZ.

In this workshop, we'll focus on building companies for growth in New Zealand and offshore. Scaling high-growth companies is all about creating business models and designing your organisation to generate exponential (or "hockey stick") revenue growth avoiding stall-points and without adding a ton of extra costs.

We will look at the distinction between growth and scaling value. We will discuss the role of company culture; when you have remote teams, when you hire and how to build alignment and commitment to the same goals and passions. We will dig into how much harder this is to control as you grow and scale across geographies. You don't have the same intimacy with new team members and they can't feed off the energy and values of the current team as easily.

We will hear from a panel of founders and investors who will share their experiences and lessons from building their companies for growth and the challenges and opportunities they discovered when taking their companies offshore.


Panellist line up:
