Presentation abstract

FROM 0 TO 100 IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE

I walked into the lobby of our office and suddenly realized I had no clue whether the people standing there were visitors or working for me. In that moment, I knew we are no longer a startup.
Our steep growth in personnel in all departments and an increasing growth of customers was a whole new challenge and a transformation of our organization was inevitable, as was the fact that as a founder, it was time for me to let go and not know everything at every moment. During this talk, I want to share my personal experiences of how we made the transition and how we are conquering the world as a scale up.
