7 Levers to be the Rising Star Startup


Can you become that company that leads in a fast growing market?

Here are the seven questions we look at in our full FastAtScale assessment.

  1. Are you truly that leader in your chosen niche?

  2. Do you offer a unique product benefit that nobody can match?

  3. Or do you have a sustainable cost advantage that nobody can match?

  4. Is your market growing with more than 10 percent per year?

  5. Is your revenue is growing even faster, more than 20 percent per year?

  6. Is your market niche elastic so that when prices ultimately drop, more customers will come into the market to compensate?

  7. Do you have a moat that protects your unfair advantage from the competition?

Starring is just one of the 11 dimensions in our full FastAtScale assessment.
