The Science Of Scale

There is a marked difference between growth and scale, and yet why do so many confuse the two?

In this episode, Nick talks about each, and explains why a more scientific approach to scale may be beneficial in the art of entrepreneurship.


  • Many in the growth phase become too comfortable, but it’s a rollercoaster ride. Some days are successful, but it has no stabilisation.
  • At the end of the growth phase, you near predictability. Predictability comes through scale, which is the nest phase in a company’s life.
  • When you enter the scale up phase, it’s about creating cashflow so as to fuel more growth. it also creates transferrable value.
  • The businesses that scale quickly are the ones that operate as a higher cadence than the rest. They go one step further than others are willing to go.


‘They are certainly part of the same journey, but they are definitely different things’

‘There is an art that comes in the world of entrepreneurship’

‘You’ve got to see a problem, think about a solution, and take action’

‘Scale up is the extension of growth’
