Growth is the most addictive drug you can hand out
Hire – Never compromise on quality – find the best people
Culture Fit comes naturally mostly you hire similar people to you
Be bold don’t wait to long
Just learn, don’t be scared of failing
Look on structure and processes together – change it in close alignment
Growth – make sure that people still have impact
Allignment & GoalSetting:
OKRs – gets you out of the Fire-Modus of a Startup – Brings you in Strategy-Modus
OKRs not from day one otherwise you are not agile enough
When you start, don’t be scared of big players
