We developed the Growth approach -- a collection of tools, techniques and playbooks that help a small team within a much larger organization to build a game-changing international funnel. This is something we'd hoped to find as entrepreneurs ourselves.
Today, the world is more fragmented than it was five years ago. Markets became more localized and competitive. An entrepreneur needs read a market not make assumptions, and get the organization to adapt to get to the right unit economics.
