Taking a startup from the idea to a thriving business can be difficult to say the least. The Growth Track of San Diego Startup Week had the idea, proven its market viability, developed the product and gotten some seed capital to start building your business. Now it’s time to go beyond your next 10 customers, beyond your next 100 customers and start to figure out how you’re going to scale your business to capture your next 1,000 customers and start seeing a return on all the time, energy and capital that you’ve invested into your business.
The challenges that face companies at this phase are vast. Between the limited resources available to startups that require you to stretch every dollar to its limit, marketing and sales management, there are a lot of pitfalls along the way that can cause startups to fail. The Growth Track offers programming to help you avoid those pitfalls and keep your business growing.
