Running a tight ship

By implementing lean business principles, we helped a social enterprise startup reduce their OPEX and extend their runway


It is possible to remove the bottle necks around your profits and also finance your runway from the revenue you generate just by cutting on costs you may not need at your current level of scale

  • In this session, we will explore how you can scale your top-line targets while finding innovative ways to keep your costs fixed or if your MRR is fixed at your current lifecycle, profitability can still be achieved by digging deep into the processes and costs around your operations and cutting off as much fat as possible.
