There is one thing successful entrepreneurs have in common, and it is that they understand how to grow and scale quickly. There have been plenty of businesses that started in tiny one-bedroom apartments that went on to be acquired for millions of dollars, as well as businesses that started with millions of dollars in backing that failed miserably.
The deciding factor usually comes down to how quickly they were able to scale and grow the business. Slow growth means little to no revenue, and when the money eventually dries up, the company is a sitting duck. Building your customer base and revenue quickly is key—something that successful entrepreneurs know how to do.
