Smith Business Club Vancouver: The ScaleUP Challenge - Growing your Business, Retaining your Talent

SBC Vancouver - The ScaleUP Challenge
Tuesday, June 4, 2019 - 5:30pm to 8:30pm

"Success is not Final; Failure is Not Fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts” (Winston Churchill).

There is nothing more exciting than that moment entrepreneurs start a business with that vision to become the next big success story.  Waking up every day with the drive, commitment, and ambition to become a high growth organization. Then they get stuck! It is common knowledge that Canada has a fundamental problem – the ability for companies to scale and scale fast.  To become the next big thing and globally recognized. Vancouver has a similar challenge.

Why is this?  Is it a lack of vision, strategy, structure, and purpose towards amplified growth? Is it the founder's mentality of not knowing how to build a meta-skilled organization that allows evolution? Is it the attraction and retention of talent? Maybe the hemorrhaging of talent to other cities?  A lack of financial investment at the right stages?
