Unformatted text preview: August 29th, 2011 Startup Genome Report Extra on Premature Scaling A deep dive into why most high growth startups fail This is an addition to the Startup Genome Report covering premature scaling based on data from 3200+ high growth technology startups. The Startup Genome Report is a 67 page analysis that was coauthored by researchers from UC Berkeley & Stanford. Other contributors include Steve Blank, the Sandbox Network, and 10 accelerators from around the globe. Your can download it at http://startupgenome.cc The goal of this mini-report is to describe our insights about premature scaling, which we have identiFed as a major reason high growth technology startups fail. If you are a startup and you would like to test whether your startup is scaling prematurely, you sign up for our online web application, the Startup Genome Compass, at http://beta.startupgenome.cc. It is speciFcally designed to help startups reduce their chances of failure by benchmarking them to analyze whether they are scaling prematurely.
