Patterns in a tech startup
Patterns in a tech startup
About the Book
The journey of a tech startup follows a clear path. It might not be a predictable endeavour and it is for sure similar to a never-ending rollercoaster of emotions and progress. However, we know what will happen and roughly in what order.
And when I write "we know" I mean that I have found patterns to support the case.
So the patterns I have found have all repeated themselves in my work at SpeedLedger, Adfenix, and Inteleon. 3 different variations of tech startups in different stages of the growth journey. Since I have spent the past decade in the tech startup world I know that the patterns are not unique for these 3 companies and I have plenty of stories from other companies, correlating with my experience.
I will share these patterns with you and hopefully, you will be able to identify them during your startup journey and get some help to resolve them. Yep, that's right! I will describe each pattern so you know how and where to find them, potential ways to solve them (and how not to try to solve them) and some stories from the trenches.
