Summary

Foreword by Bill Gates. 

From the authors of New York Times best sellers The Alliance and The Start-up of You comes a smart and accessible must-have guide for budding entrepreneurs everywhere. 

Silicon Valley is renowned for its striking number of businesses, which have grown from garage start-ups into global giants - Apple, Cisco, Google, HP and Intel, to name a few. But what is the secret to their outstanding success? Hoffman and Yeh explain that it’s simple: they’ve learnt how to blitzscale. 

Featuring case studies from numerous prominent tech businesses such as AirBnB and WeChat, this book offers a specific set of practices for catalysing and managing dizzying growth in burgeoning start-ups. Prioritising speed over efficiency in an environment of uncertainty, Blitzscaling illustrates how businesses can accelerate to the stage in a company’s life cycle where the most value is generated. 

Using the framework provided by Hoffman and Yeh, readers will learn how to design business models which simultaneously support growth at a furious pace and capture the market as well as how to navigate the necessary shifts in strategy needed at each level of scale.

"The case studies you’re about to explore and the tools you’re about to gain have never been more relevant. This is an ideal moment to be reading this book." (Bill Gates)

This book shares some of the key secrets for building mission-oriented, global businesses at speed." (Brian Chesky, cofounder and CEO, AirBnb)

"Blitzscaling shows how companies can build value for customers and shareholders in the digital age. A compelling inside view of how the new economy is being built and is transforming global business." (Sheryl Sandberg, New York Times best-selling author of Lean In and Option B

Excellent book, practical and insightful and would highly recommend it to anyone in business. My only disappointment is that the narrator mentioned that there is a PDF supplement with diagrams, which was not available for download on Audible.
