Why is this relevant
Based on all experiences my partners and I accumulated, we want to give knowledge back to other companies.
Many companies have awesome founders and great products and still don't get enough traction to be
As we don't want to be consultants rather more like operative mentors, we
founded The Scaling Team.
We focus on international SAAS companies which have a lack in TEAM, PRODUCT or TRACTION.
(Right now, we are fully engaged with Usersnap.
If you let us join your team, we jump in for a certain period of time.
Based on a mutually developed Scaling Plan
and clear, challenging goals we will scale your business. Sounds interesting?
What drives me?
My being an entrepreneur stands on three foundations which lead to an important Work-Life-Balance.
These are Family, Business & Sports.
A healthy mind in a healthy body
Working goal-oriented gives you a very clear focus. To fully disclose: I ❤️ lists.
Networking and building private / business relationships are very
important for me. One of my mottos is "gather smarter people around you than you are".
But there are so many fascinating things in life:
It's amazing to see businesses grow. Love the numbers and the energy you feel when you're part of these
companies. Traction is my North star.
The last years gave me the opportunity to strengthen my sales muscle. This connects you directly
to the numbers that count - revenue and profit. Implementing systems into your company not only
makes processes distributable throughout your time but also scalable.
One of my favourite B2B sales approaches is Aaron Ross' Predicatable revenue.
Learned this from an amazing guy named Tamir from Hackabu and soon it became a passion. Growth Hacking is about processes (not tactics) how to
grow your business through analysis, metrics, experiments, learning and repetition. Better definitions can be found at this
awesome site (www.growthhackers.com).
Why is Growth Hacking so valuable? Most companies do not dig into their numbers and do not track enough. Today we
have endless technical possibiliites to get deep insights into your customers behaviour but it's rarely used.
Most decisions and actions are based on guts' feelings. Can you believe this??
