While we’ve grown to become a team of over 100 employees and built over 10 ventures together with our partners, we still see ourselves as entrepreneurs who believe in taking big bets to create business models that will scale. We don’t have much time for conferences and doing one ourselves wasn’t high on our agenda for a long time. But after some prodding, it became clear we could offer something of real value to our clients, partners and friends: a small format for all of us to come together to discuss our experiences, exchange best practices, learn from each other, and get inspired.
We wanted to answer the questions we are asked most often when building new ventures, especially among family-run businesses and SMEs:
- How big should I think?
- Do I need to build a business model that will disrupt my core business?
- What’s the relationship between the new venture and parent company?
- How do I use the competitive advantages of the parent company to help scale a new venture?
- And what kind of people do I need to scale a new business?
