Start ups and small companies often find themselves with the problem of slow growth. This despite having a valuable technology, product or service to offer. This can happen for various reasons: over emphasis on the product itself over the requirements of running the business, inadequate revenue to bring in experienced business development talent, or lack of a coherent business development plan that aligns the company’s strengths with critical market parameters.
