Growth digest
Culture, funding and amazon buying whole foods
Observing a growing business from a far will make you think that there is no way that this company is going to fly or be successful.

But, there is a two ingredient recipe that will help a company grow and still maintain the happy employees.

1. A permeating, strong culture on all levels
2. Hiring the right people with the right attitude, not necessarily the right skills
The previous weeks we have read and harvested articles, podcasts and other medias around this topic, growth culture. There is an inevitable marriage between the two that basically makes a company if done right and literally breaks a company if done bad.

Happy reading!
