    3) The Network Effect
    4) How to attract the right team for scaling? Where to find them? 
    5) Change in team dynamics (what got you here, won't get you there)
    6) How much funding to raise? How to select the right investors? 
    7) Setting up a KPI system in place to push the growth team while increasing accountability (hire slow, fire fast).
    8) Burning Money vs Money Management 
    9) Speed up with strategic partners. How to choose? Why will they partner with a startup? 
    10) Align value creation with valuation and exit in mind. (This is where you and your investors get rich)
