Matt Lerner spent 15 years in Silicon Valley - including a decade leading the growth of PayPal - before becoming a venture capitalist with legendary investors 500 Startups. He’s now CEO of Startup Core Strengths, which helps early-stage startups boost growth. Listen in as we discover how Matt leverages his addiction to learning - from often painful failure - to create rapid growth in business. In this episode you’ll learn the importance of focusing on one thing and how you get what you measure. Understand what “mentor whiplash” is, and how to avoid it. How growth is everyone’s job. And the power of the “1-inch punch”. Why learning is a journey that never ends and how a startup is - in effect - a race to learn faster than anyone else. So much good stuff!
