Proactively driving high growth is a mystery for the vast majority of entrepreneurs. They have no model of the driving forces of high growth to guide them and thus their efforts are often frustrated when they overlook basic principles that underpin growth strategies.
This book sets out a practical and structured treatment of the elements of business management and product/marketing positioning that facilitates high growth. It is based on well know growth theories, the author’s personal experience and the successes of venture capital sector.
The purpose of this book is to enable entrepreneurs to identify the critical business principles which drive high growth, to provide them with a means to measure their growth potential and to help them understand what they have to do to significantly improve their growth prospects.
Venture Growth Strategies identifies the 14 critical principles of growth and explains how the entrepreneur can construct a business environment which can implement and exploit those principles. The book incorporates a Growth Potential Index to enable the entrepreneur to identify exactly where they stand with regard to their current status on each principle and this will then identify to the entrepreneur what needs to be done to improve the business prospects for high growth.
