The Startup Lifecycle

The Startup Lifecycle
The Startup Lifecycle helps entrepreneurs see the forest and the trees at the same time.

In the frenetic pace startups demand, it’s too easy to lose sight of the purpose the business serves for customers and stakeholders. Without that context, decision making suffers and mis-steps become more likely.

A framework for startup success

The Startup Lifecycle is a visual framework giving leadership a “big picture view” of the landscape in which they operate. Ovals represent key “aspects” of the business and arrows show key interconnections. 

The intent is to provide leadership with context so their priorities and deliverables fit properly into the landscape to avoid mistakes and insure optimal results are achieved.

I developed the framework based on my own startup experience and through the founders I’ve mentored. It has helped me keep my activities focused and aligned with the needs of the business.
