BC Team Coaching e-book cover

Only 3% of Start-ups go on to Scale-Up (EU Start-up and Scale-up Initiative 2019) or 70% of companies disappear in the valley of death, or become self-sustaining after their first seed investment (CB Insights).  Only three of Europe's most valuable scaleups are profitable. Of the 20 top unicorns in Europe, only three are in the black. (Sifted Nov 22)


This quick guide to scaling focuses on start-ups past the search phase (problem-solution fit) having moved into the execution phase of their business model (product-market fit), or from a funding cycle past “bootstrapping” and moving towards series A funding. We give you a “cheat sheet” of sorts, that lays out some of the key challenges and how to overcome them.

What Will You Learn From This Book?

What Will You Learn From This Book?

The book is not just an Accelerator check list on how to achieve pre-scaling, we disrupt your thinking patterns and use questions to explore in each chapter as a reflective tool, for example:

How to polish the management readiness or senior team capability as an essential driving force to increase and grow your start-up?

How to overcome internal complex and emerging challenges to increase performance?

How is your strategy translated into clear objectives and how will these be achieved?

What kind of leadership your direct reports need in order for them to perform in their roles?

You will not learn about fundraising strategies if you are seeking to raise funds.

The 63-pages eBook is based on an Integrative and Systemic Approach to Change. This integral  framework, when applied to scaling a startup, can help to shed light on the interconnection of all the different aspects of a company, and how they work together to support growth and success – the individual founder (I/IT quadrants); the collective – the founder's team (WE) and the external operational investors' lens (ITS)

Change in any one quadrant or the external context, impacts all quadrants, thereby the efficiency of scaling and crossing the death valley (TRL 4/5 - TRL 7/8)

Therefore, each quadrant represents a different aspect of the startup, and each must be considered and managed effectively for the startup to scale successfully.


Tomorrow’s managers will need to know how to build a learning organization (where progress is measured by validated learning) and an execution organization (where progress is measured according to traditional value streams). They will need to know how to combine those organizations into one coherent whole. (Eric Ries the Lean Start-up)

What Do Some Of Our Clients Say About Our Systemic Business Coaching Approach? 

Client reference comments

We worked with Bernard when our company was rapidly growing which alone is a huge strain but for us it was particularly difficult because we were mostly scientists with no previous business experience. We were a set of effective individuals working together but we were not a proper team. Bernard helped us see our strengths but also identified our weaknesses so we could overcome them effectively.

I can only say thank you, Bernard, for the support and all the learnings.
