This event will be chaired by Adelina Chalmers, a.k.a. The Geek Whisperer.

Growth challenges discussed might cover:

  • Focus - B2B market or B2C market?
  • Should we go with pricing strategy A or B?
  • Wondering if you should sell up to that corporate offering to buy you out?
  • Wondering if you should go for series B or C of investment (raise money to grow faster but end up owning less of your company; or bootstrap for longer, owning more but perhpas growing slower).
  • Feeling unsure about how to build and lead your teams through significant business change.
  • Launching in new markets.
  • Experiencing other growing pains that you'd like advice on.

Places are limited so we advise that you register early and take advantage of the early bird pricing. Please visit our Eventbrite page here.
