Managing the Growth of New Ventures --- New entrepreneurial ventures, once successfully past the formation stage, often encounter problems caused by their very rapid growth. Different functional and technical skills are needed. More reliable information is a must. External support groups (bankers, attorneys, accountants, and investors) and new company employees both have to be integrated into the goals and operations of the firm. The activities of the entrepreneur have to change, from innovation to delegation, communication, and organization. This is a very basic change that many entrepreneurs never make. The purpose of the course is to convey in a very pragmatic fashion the reason, the areas, the tools, and the urgency of that critical leadership change.
