From Build to Scale

As your startup grows, you need to shift gears from "build" to "scale". This requires rethinking some of your core principles which led to your startup's success in the first place.

To help founders navigate this shift, eFounders has compiled a comprehensive ressource built from a series of lectures from leading experts on how to scale after your first round of financing.

Initially designed to help eFounders companies get on the right track after leaving the startup studio, we've opened up our series of talks to share their benefits far and wide.
