Startups face an inherent challenge. Changing the world requires growth and scale. Yet growth has the potential to strip any company of the magic, culture and nimbleness that made it successful in the first place.
In 2013, my LinkedIn Talent Solutions team rallied around the idea of becoming something unique: a “Billion Dollar Startup.” Our goal was to become a multi-billion dollar business that stayed true to our startup roots without falling prey to slowness, cautiousness, rigidity, inertia… all the things that we despise.
Last week at our annual kickoff, we launched this Billion Dollar Startup playbook, which highlights the challenges that plague growing companies, and offers nine rules that can help your team navigate this phase of growth.
This is a work in progress. Feedback welcome.
