PODCAST Joe Haslam about Scaling Up vs Growth

Our host, Jara Pascual, founder & CEO of Collabwith, today we have the true pleasure to talk to Prof. Joe Haslam, professor and master of scaling up.

“You have to be in contact with other founders, it’s a way to enable you to go further as an entrepreneur”

Prof. Joe Haslam is a scale up master and expert, Associate professor at IE, Academic Director, Global Scaleup Program at American University of Beirut and MonshaatSA at Saudi.

“Market-product fit is very important, it’s when the market is coming to you and ask you – “I want your product”- When you have to convince the customers, you have still not the market-product fit”


In this podcast episode of  “Business of Collaboration”, we will talk about his journey from entrepreneur to professor, and how he is changing the conversation and perspective about startups, scaleups, slow growth, scaling up, investment, and women above 50 as a power house.
