Module 4: Introduction
Just as “investor readiness” means different things to different people, “ready to scale” also has several meanings. This module takes a four-pronged approach:
1. Have you achieved product/market fit and do you know about the 180-degree behavior change that follows?
2. Is your team ready to scale?
3. Do you know how to scale your business processes?
4. Have you developed workarounds for the structural barriers to scalability?
Outcome: Companies will be able to self-assess which parts of their businesses need focus in order to prepare for scaling. Then, working with mentors, they can develop a plan to address the most pressing barriers to scalability that also represent barriers to fundraising.
