“We just raised our Series A and need to scale the team and operations, but we haven’t done this before. We need to make sure we develop a great rhythm so we don’t miss targets.”
“I’m spending too much time in the weeds. I need help developing an operating system and high performance culture so I can focus more on mission critical priorities.”
“We don’t have a seasoned leadership team in place. We need bench strength but finding the right hire takes time and is expensive. And yet we still need to move fast.”
