They are crucial for generating new #jobs and exert competitive pressure on prevailing businesses, which drives improvements in productivity and prosperity. In short, the starting – and scaling – of new ventures is vital for #innovation and #economic #growth.

Keith Cornell spear headed the event with a grand overview of how scaleups form from startups. Looking at the pitfalls that we all try and ignore and using the 4 corner diagram of success. Where we need solid bases in each camp to run a growing and stable company across the 'chasm of death’ startup to scaleup gap.

Gobind Singh Khalsa welcomed us into hearing about his current scaleup 480 Holdings with a lively debate from the room on all aspects of his business with plans to bottle and sell premium Fiji natural spring water of bottled drinking water from Fiji. Yaqara’s water source is natural, premium Fiji “spring” water and is harvested from a pure rainforest aquifer. Which has its own unique challenges and opportunities to scale wisely.
