The Startup Growth Gap
After more than a decade working for VC-backed, Silicon Valley Saas companies our team decided it was time to forge out on our own. We thought it was a unique time in the market where there were so many new startups but no infrastructure to support the transition from MVP to the growth stage aka the “Startup Growth Gap” shown above. There are Angels to help you get your idea off the ground, there are accelerators to help you get through MVP and product market fit, but what happens when you get traction and need to scale? Our goal was to fill this void. We founded Executive Answers in South Florida, but have recently relocated to the amazing city of Austin, TX to support the vibrant startup ecosystem to accelerate to maturity.
Our team has held almost every revenue producing role from sales rep to VP. We have experience in all disciplines from GTM strategy, TAM development, lead generation, marketing strategy, sales management, sales enablement, sales and marketing operations, sales analytics and more. We have not only run and managed teams but even more importantly have built them from scratch as this is the critical skill set needed for growth-stage startups. The ability to recruit leaders, build the processes, implement the systems in order to mechanize and expand. We can help your business from modeling/budgeting to recruiting/onboarding and coaching/training. We bring experience from companies who scaled 400% a year, we have build teams from 2-50 in 6 months and driven growth that resulted in over $7 Billion in exits.
