Navigating the 'Teenage' Years: How to successfully grow your start-up to the next level.

Do you remember your teenage years?  They were exciting, full of opportunity, but also challenging, full of change.  Young startups that have secured initial customers and face fast growth go through a similar stage.  They need to change and adapt to take advantage of the opportunity, but those changes can be difficult.  Deriving lessons from actual experience leading product teams in young, and in established B2B companies, this session discusses how to position organizations to successfully scale. It looks at the natural evolution of startups, and how to avoid the most common mistakes growing companies make as the number of customers and the product complexity increase.
