Growing a company is not for the faint of heart. As a successful CEO once said, “Leading a company through the hyper-growth phase is sometimes like driving that race car. The business is accelerating like made, and you do not feel totally in control. You might be tempted to slow things down a bit out of fear that you’re going to careen off the track. But if you slow down too much your competitors are likely to speed past you! The bottom line is, you have to get comfortable with the pace and the fact that not everything is going to go perfectly.”
SkyBridge’s work with high growth company leaders includes the Growth Company General Counsel Network, a group of about 20 general counsel from both pre- and post-IPO companies whose valuations typically exceed $1 billion.
