I created Beyond Startup to help fellow entrepreneurs through the challenges of growth - particularly that awkward "teenage phase" where you're no longer a startup, but not a "grown up" company either.
What you see here is the culmination of my 15 years experience running companies, with a particular focus in two areas - operations and online marketing. Internet marketing is what got me into business in the first place, while learning the management piece along the way.
I'm excited to share what I've learned and hope to save you the trouble of repeating the same scavenger hunt for second stage resources.
A sampling of what you'll find here:
* Guest bloggers, such as Dave Haviland, an expert in second stage strategy
* Links and discounts to affinity groups for the second stage, such as Small Giants International
* Operating systems you can easily adopt to simplify the process of manage your business
“Catherine facilitated our quarterly strategic meeting and I was blown away! Patient, insightful and encouraging, Catherine moved us through a ton of work in a day. It was amazing to look back and see how much we had accomplished. All the while, she moved seamlessly between her role as facilitator and her role as trusted expert in growing 2nd stage companies. Catherine followed up with additional support materials and will be there as we forge ahead. Thanks, Catherine!”
