How you approach, analyze, and use your data makes all the difference in whether it will empower you.
If you’re careful to go about expansion at the right time and in the right way, you’ll thrive in your new territories the same way you did at home.
When you’re first getting a startup off the ground, it’s normal to seek out and pitch partners. If your foundation is strong enough, the tables may turn, and big-name businesses will approach you instead.
Marketplaces can work just as well for service companies as they do for retail companies.
Holding onto a hungry, product-focused attitude keeps you relevant and competitive.
