Scaling your business: fast or slow?
Speakers: Dr. Tom Duening (UCCS) and Conor McCluskey (BombBomb)
Join the Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS), College of Business' Office of Professional & Executive Development (OPED) for a six-part business education series, Business Briefings.
This cutting edge series will focus on relevant business challenges and complex topics. Each session is co-facilitated by a university professor and a local business executive, merging both research-based business concepts with real-life experiences, creating an innovative learning environment. Participants will have the opportunity to network, learn, exchange ideas and gain insight into high-level business trends, all while furthering their leadership and professional skills.
Perhaps one of the biggest - and hardest - decisions for business leaders: what is the best strategy for scaling a business? Should I scale quickly to take advantage of immediate opportunities or grow slow and steady? Which is the best strategy for my business? And, what are the pros and cons of each strategy?
Dr. Tom Duening, director for the Center for Entrepreneurship and El Pomar Chair of Business and Entrepreneurship, and Conor McCluskey, co-founder and CEO of BombBomb, an email marketing company, will take an in-depth look at scalability, combining research with real-life experiences.
