Failure is your best teacher. The co-founders of #Crystal, failed big time in a previous venture and both credit that painful experience for the exceptional lessons it gifted them.#GregSkloot is co-founder and President of Crystal. He and #DrewDagostino have taken a refreshingly slow start to establish strong foundations to their tech #scaleup. They've taken their time to plan, design the business they want to become. They've been very selective about their investors. They held back their growth to make sure they ironed out the kinks in their product, took their time to hire critical roles and established themselves in their market with paying customers before they kickstarted started their enterprise sales.What's refreshing about these guys is they have been humble enough to learn from their mistakes, they recognise they are not the finished article and have stripped their egos out of their own roles. They also realised that they needed to play to their strengths and let go. They've delegated or hired people to do what needed to be done in areas they are not strong in or where they could be freed up to focus on higher value or more strategic activities.In this very candid interview Greg explains why they have intentionally slowed down their growth to build firm foundations, establish a fan base of happy users, mature their product, their sales messages and position themselves to launch into the enterprise market.Well worth a listen.Contact Greg via:LinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/gregsklootWebsitesskloot.org (Blog)crystalknows.com/p/gregskloot (Personal Website)Twitter: gregskloot--Book a confidential 1 to 1 call with me: https://calendly.com/marcuscauchi/linkedin-discovery-callSubscribe to #TheGrumbler newsletter: http://eepurl.com/gu2Yd1 #TheInquisitorPodcastPodbean: marcuscauchi.podbean.comSpotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/7C3pmVfHbwu84oZCqUQq81Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/welcome-to-theinquisitor-podcast/id1341867086 The #ScaleupsAndHypergrowthPodcastPodbean: scaleupsandhypergrowth.podbean.comSpotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3t0Gge9e5XaB8REaqkiQ6uApple: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/scaleups-and-hypergrowth-podcast/id1508754065
