Workshop Details:

The workshop focuses on crafting a Blitzscaling plan with a constructive in-person session. In just one day, business owners are able to learn how to scale their businesses to a higher level through engaging with experienced entrepreneurs and business innovators, hands-on activity to enhance strategic thinking and processes as well as group discussions among participants from different industries.

According to Reid Hoffman, who helped founded Paypal and LinkedIn, as well as an early investor of Facebook, Blitzscaling is what you do when you need to grow really, really quickly. It’s the science and art of rapidly building out a company to serve a large and usually global market, with the goal of becoming the first mover at scale. This is high-impact entrepreneurship. These kinds of companies always create a lot of the jobs and industries of the future. For example, Amazon essentially invented e-commerce. Today, it has over 150,000 employees and has created countless jobs at Amazon sellers and partners. Google revolutionized how we find information—it has over 60,000 employees and has created many more jobs at its AdWords and AdSense partners.
