Startups are born to fail. Around three quarters of venture capital backed new companies never return cash to investors. Upscale is about the other 25%. `I feel like I woke up one morning to find I have a board, investors and 80 people to manage - and I don't have a clue how to do it.' Asi Sharabi, co-founder, Wonderbly At a time when more people than ever are starting companies in Britain - over 2,000 new businesses are launched every day - Upscale focuses on the moment founders floor the accelerator and their company goes from a bunch of friends in a co-working space to hundreds of employees often scattered around the world. Speaking to some of the UK's leading technology entrepreneurs and investors - including Brent Hoberman (lastminute.com, Founders Factory), Wendy Tan White (BGF, Moonfruit), Neil Rimer (Index Ventures), Suranga Chandratillake (Balderton Capital), Saul Klein (LocalGlobe), and Sarah Wood (Unruly) - who between them have built or backed companies worth billions, journalist James Silver covers the most pressing, practical and often painful issues founders face: from coping with stress to getting shot of a bad hire, to handling a tricky board member and opening a first overseas office. By founders for founders, and those toying with starting a business, Upscale (based on the Tech Nation programme of the same name) avoids the theorizing and platitudes of typical business books, in favour of hard-headed advice from those who've succeeded - and the mistakes to look out for along the way.
Debbie Allen and James Silver have a strong belief that diversity is what makes life an interesting place to live. That being said, the writers have also noted the trend of intermingling of cultures, which continues to be an ever growing phenomenon. And as the world continues to enjoy more technological advances and freedoms it also becomes a smaller place - meeting and getting to know people around the world Is now as close as one's computer. Intercultural relationships are becoming increasingly common, and in spite of the differences in the partners, or perhaps because of them, these relationships are often long lasting and loving. Many result in lifelong partners and even marriage. As the couple learns about each other's cultures and customs they determine their own way to live life and where this journey will take them. They establish the values they will live by in order to build a happy and healthy relationship. Just like other couples, they find that the key to keeping their relationship strong is an open line of communication and the act of falling in love with each other over and over again. This book offers information that will serve as a guide for anyone interested in or involved in an intercultural relationship.
