Few startups experience exponential growth. Businesses grow at different rates, and much of that growth will be non-linear. This is especially true for future-tech startups as they can take a decade more to mature.

Specifically, Maryanna will cover:
– How to evaluate in multi-year intervals to project growth
– What founders need to know to make it for the long-haul
– How to get to a point where an injection of funding can significantly boost growth
– Where most startups fail and how to prevent it
