Congratulations, your startup has hit product-market-fit! Now you can scale. But how do you capture your market without turning into a big boring corporation?

Scaleup veterans Roland Siebelink & Doug Miller provide founders with the perfect playbook to scale.
About the Book
Smart founders find a wealth of playbooks to help them reach product-market-fit. But after they do, the playbook is missing.
Raising more capital is easy now, but how do you spend it wisely? Are you just growing for the sake of growth, or do you have a specific target in mind?
Having lived through three tech scale-ups and worked with many founders, Roland Siebelink argues that founders should set their sights on product-market-dominance means focusing efforts on entrenching themselves deeply into a mainstream market before competitors can catch up.
Combining the best of Gazelles growth company coaching with timeless Silicon Valley advice, Roland provides scaleup founders with the first playbook particularly focused on mid-stage tech ventures.
