Scaling Success Factors = Culture

During our café session with Hidde Hoogcarspel, Founding Partner of Dutch Founders Fund, he shared what he believes are the key success factors in companies that end up scaling successfully. In one way or another they all relate to culture:

🎯 Radical focus
🚀 Drive
🕵️ Curiosity
🏆 Persistence
📊 Data driven
💖 Passionate
🎉 Celebrate successes
⚙️ Capture processes (but do not overdo 😊)
🎓 Learn from mistakes (and keep making them)
🌟 Keep it simple

This is a great summary of crucial ingredients for success and something we also recognize in our customers that are able to scale. The mindset you have as founder and the culture you instill in your company is what it’s all about because as the famous quote from Peter Drucker says “𝑪𝒖𝒍𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒆 𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒔 𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒈𝒚 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒃𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒌𝒇𝒂𝒔𝒕”.
