Making the decision to grow your business in new geographies, new verticals or new categories will be the focus for this Everest session. As you gain traction, you may find your company faced with more growth opportunities than your resources can absorb. Knowing which ones to make strategic priorities and which ones to say no to can often be the most difficult decisions.
A strategic prioritization tool will be introduced to help entrepreneurs evaluate specific growth and business model development decisions. Entrepreneurs will walk away with a working knowledge of this strategic tool so it can be deployed amongst their team. Led by our Growth Strategy expert, Jeff Chochinov, you will walk away with a strategy to approach growth.
