Christian Soschner

In this podcast episode, we will discuss several different forms of growth and scaling up companies. In the era of the fast-growing unicorns and skyrocketing valuations, we try to disassemble the growth path and see what a founder can do to benefit most of these options. 

  • How to decide if an organic or buy&build model is the right one for me? 
  • Are mergers & acquisitions play-field only for the very mature companies? 
  • When is the time to start with bolt-on acquisitions? 
  • Is fast growth really possible in only an organic way? 
  • We shall address all these questions, look into the latest M&A trends of 2020 and 2021, shed a light on the life science industry, and discuss several real-life cases of buy&build growth models. 

As we are excited about the next podcast episode let us just say ‘Hopin' our podcast episode for more.
