Starting Up. There is a large attrition rate during the startup phase of new companies, many never gaining enough traction to attract sufficient customers and/or financial support. The key reason is that the management team, while very able and highly motivated, lacks some key business skills and/or experiences.
Scaling Up. During the later growth stages, companies are often unable to adapt to the requirements of scaling up and continue in the rut of business-as-usual. Consequently, they miss growth opportunities; or worse, they lose out to competition altogether and fade away.
Operating Sustainably. Even small businesses are becoming aware of the need to adopt more sustainable business practices, but they don’t quite know where to begin that transition, how to assess their current impacts, and how to define appropriate sustainability initiatives. Our primary focus is on early-stage startups.
The network and support provided by the Greenhouse has been instrumental to our company's progress. Our meetings with industry professionals in a relaxed setting encouraged more robust feedback and greater insight into our business.
