You never know who you’ll inspire…

As a business grows, its story grows, but it’s the original founder stories that play a huge role in inspiring the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

These stories remind leaders, employees, aspiring brand owners, and customers about the vision and dream the company’s founder/s once had. Not only that, but they bring the experience of running a business to life; unearthing painful experiences, challenges, breaks, turning points, and near misses. Some say an honest recount of entrepreneurial life is key to becoming a better leader, and those learnings shared can be applied to so many people, across so many industries – even those who have no intention of launching their own business.

That’s why we’re so keen on sharing founder stories here on The Scale Up. To inspire others.

The Scale Up was created as a knowledge-sharing community that brings people together to talk about the challenges faced by eCommerce business owners, but most importantly, celebrates founder success stories as inspiration to others.

Perhaps, like Hanna Sillitoe, you started your company as a result of life-altering personal struggles, or like for the Ageless, made a promise to a loved one and stuck by it. Whatever your founder story, we’d love to hear it – and share it. Simply drop us an email and we’ll be in touch (excitedly)…
