From 0-10-100: Spaces that Build, Grow, and Nurture Teams at every Milestone

Post on May 21, 2024

Introduction: Building 0-100 with a key ingredient

Scaling a business from 0-1, then 1-10 and 10-100 is no overnight oats recipe. Every company on its path to success, goes through 3 distinct phases - 0-1 Startup, 1-10 scaling & growth, 10-100 profitability. 

The 0-1 phase is all about building from the ground up, getting the foundation right, bringing the right people. The core team defines the values, mission and vision for the company. It is this core team that comes together to ensure the foundation is tight. 

After the market fit is identified, the product built, comes the 1-10 phase, which is all about scaling - multiplying customers, building an ever growing pipeline. Business is the key focus in this stage, clients are the key success drivers. 

The 10-100 stage is the journey to become the market leader, capture market share, adding capital and resources to the business and work on building the strongest teams, products and reducing threats, making sure the machine is always well oiled.

As a leader of a business, in any and all stages, the most important ingredient in building a successful company is building a strong culture. The space in which these ideas are discussed, the team operates - will make or break how the company moves forward.

“Customers will never love a company until the employees love it first” - says Simon Sinek, Author of Start with Why. And we agree.


Spaces that build culture 

You know what is crucial for businesses to grow? The people growing the business to be in their happy place, a space that sparks innovation, ideas - brings the vibe! If you’re a founder, just building your team or a COO of a Fortune 500 company, if your people don’t like where they work - they will most certainly, not like the work. So,

Add these TO-DOs to your calendar

  1. Lock up the traditional, monotonous traditional cubicles-office (even if it is The Office) and
  2. Unlock the idea of innovative, bright fresh co-working spaces!

At every stage, there’s an opportunity to build, nurture and grow your company - with fellow leaders, peer teams across companies! Hello co-working spaces, where mindspace, physical space, ideas and teams come together for every milestone in the company.

#1 Avengers Assemble! (now within minutes and not years)

Collaborate - with your human people and fellow humans too! 

No more huddles, ad-hoc “quick calls” in the middle of the day.

Meetings are about ideas, solutions, literal opportunities to grow and a good co-working space fosters a healthy, collaborative environment, where people can assemble within minutes. 

They are in the same mindspace, workspace which brings focus and encourages interaction, innovation, and creativity within teams, and among like-minded individuals. 

It provides an opportunity for teams from varied, unique companies to interact too, share ideas, and find partnerships on projects. Being in an environment full of leaders, teams of entrepreneurs who are facing similar challenges can provide immense room for learning and support.
