Presented by Bobby Martin 

Angel Investor, Serial Entrepreneur and Author of sales book Hockey Stick Principles

Bobby Martin believes that too many startup founders pivot too early, quit too early, and expect rapid takeoff. Through his experience of starting and selling First Research for $26M, he’s learned first-hand the challenges and solutions at each stage of entrepreneurial growth.

Starting and growing a company isn’t a paint-by-numbers endeavor that happens at the speed of light if you just hustle. High growth success isn’t that simple, that fast, or that smooth of a ride. The Hockey Stick Principles shows you how to navigate each stage of growth — especially The Blade Years — why challenges arise, how to solve them, and how to move through each stage more smoothly.

In Bobby's study of 172 startups, all but eleven companies had hockey stick-shaped growth curves. As a startup entrepreneur, you should aim for hockey-stick growth and also be aware of the challenges presented at each stage. Get a straightforward, inside analysis of what made 172 diverse companies achieve take-off revenue growth.
