Stephanie Geerlings, Builder, Hacker, Entrepreneur, Product Manager, and Prime Minister At Cloud City Development Discusses Scaling Startup Teams And Companies

At companies that need to scale people there are a few components to take into account; 1. Prove that you are as useful an organization to them as they are to you. 2. Do meaningful work and start an initiative that people want to be a part of. 3. Appreciate people, yourself, and the huge power that your company can grow to be.

Stephanie Geerlings, Builder, Hacker, Entrepreneur, Product Manager, and Prime Minister for Cloud City Development, has grown companies from $3k-3M+ and teams from 3-50. She’s built software, hardware, large steel machine sculptures, and has done 3-D, print, and web design and branding for Fortune 500s. Stephanie’s values are core to how she works. She’s overly honest, cares about intention, and believes in people. “Our work is to solve problems. Problems get solved—by thinking it through and applying best practices in a flexible way. Not all clients’ requirements are the same. We design and engineer the solution.”

Startup Product Talks, San Mateo Wednesday, April 17, 2013 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/StartupProductTalks/events/109359322/

Featured Speaker: James Kennedy, Founder and “growth hacker” at Piehole.tv

It might be easy to scale from 1000 to 5000 customers after you’ve at least established a user base – but how do you get your first 1000 customers – beyond family and friends – who will actually provide valuable feedback, use your product and maybe even pay…

James will share his story as well as the specific steps and unique methods that enabled him and his partner to grow from a small town on the west coast of Europe to a business that now has thousands of customers spread over 9 timezones.

About James Kennedy 

James is Founder and “growth hacker” at Piehole.tv  James has founded a number of bootstrapped, profitable businesses specializing in creating online marketplaces.

He left his native Ireland four years ago and has since been living the life of an ‘international vagabond’ across three continents (Latin America, South Africa and Europe), all while building his business.

He has developed a wealth of experience in the online marketing and customer development space. James has a computer science degree from the University of Dublin.
