Moving out of the Garage Scaling for Startups AKA why scaling is fun

Why are you here? I want to conquer an incredibly technically challenging problem that no one has solved Others have attempted to solve it and failed (or succeeded but I can do it better) I see something that no one has tried to solve I want to build a business possibly based on technology that fills a gap in the market Technology is core, product is centric I want to leverage technology to build a non tech based revenue generating business Technology is awesome, and it is going to support my business.

I want to conquer an incredibly technically challenging problem that no one has solved

Others have attempted to solve it and failed (or succeeded but I can do it better)

I see something that no one has tried to solve

I want to build a business possibly based on technology that fills a gap in the market

Technology is core, product is centric

I want to leverage technology to build a non tech based revenue generating business

Technology is awesome, and it is going to support my business.

The Path

Day 1: aka the last easy day of your life (or at least for a while)

G2

Day X

myspace.com : a place for moving 0-20M active users in 2 years 0-100M active users in 4 years

Laying Foundations Lay groundwork to prepare for 3 critical growth phases Scaling the technology Scaling the team Scaling the revenues/efficiency Decisions made in first 90 days create lasting impressions that can be felt for years

Scaling the technology

Scaling the team

Scaling the revenues/efficiency

Decisions made in first 90 days create lasting impressions that can be felt for years

Scaling the Technology Scale up vs. scale out is no longer a question Unless you just founded a bank, don’t scale up  Partition Data Decide early on, and make the right decision Range Based Mod Based Mod’ed Ranges (if I had to do it over) Concentrate on write management

Partition Data

Decide early on, and make the right decision

Mod’ed Ranges (if I had to do it over)

Concentrate on write management

Scaling the Technology Don’t solve problems you don’t have Reuse as many existing solutions as possible What are your goals? Make $$? Build Cool Technology? Both? Fail Fast Admit failure Don’t Double Down on bad decisions Walk away from failure

Don’t solve problems you don’t have

Reuse as many existing solutions as possible

What are your goals?

Make $$?

Build Cool Technology?

Both?

Fail Fast

Admit failure

Don’t Double Down on bad decisions

Walk away from failure

Scaling the Organization The first 25 people you hire will define the success of your company Don’t hire fast, hire smart Manage your burn, not your timeframe Do you have competitors trying to do the same? Are you second to market? Sprint Is it new? Is no one else thinking about this? Marathon Be smart about your stealth phase Countless failures from coming out to early Countless failures from coming out to late

Marathon

Be smart about your stealth phase

Countless failures from coming out to early

Countless failures from coming out to late

We Want To Code

Scaling the Organization #1 Priority – Minimize ramp time Counterpart to technology’s “fail fast” Abstract core technologies from front end development groups Data Access Layer Cache Queues Etc. Create vertical product partitions with horizontal skillset partitions

True? False?

True? False?

The Cloud I love a good buzzword Cloud Computing Economies of scale? Little to no SLA. Now you own my data Consumers eat the cloud Email (circa…how long ago?)
