Blitzscaling: The Lightning-Fast Path to Building Massively Valuable Companies

Chris Yeh, co-author of Blitzscaling (with LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman) shares the playbook used by startups to become global giants like Amazon, Facebook, or Airbnb.

Chris will dive into blitzscaling, a set of techniques for scaling up at a dizzying pace that blows competitors out of the water and takes startups from one to one billion, as quickly as possible. Specifically, Chris will cover:

  • How to design business models for igniting and sustaining relentless growth
  • Strategies for hiring and managing
  • How the role of the founder and company culture must evolve as the business matures
  • How to navigate the necessary shifts and weather the unique challenges that arise at each stage of a company’s life cycle

Chris covers examples of the business models, strategies, and management techniques that have been employed by companies that have successfully scaled from startup to massively-valuable global companies in a matter of years, through a series of case studies.
