Fady Saad, a Co-Founders of MassRobotics and Director of Partnerships, recently led a webinar as part of the MIT Systems Thinking Webinar Series on 7 March 2016. The webinar was attended by over 350 participants from 35 countries.

About the Presentation:

Any evaluation of the life cycle of established companies will reveal the importance of taking a holistic approach to fundamental business challenges such as product development, customer acquisition, financial growth, and employee and leadership recruitment. Making progress on all fronts simultaneously is critical for companies at all stages of development, but it is especially important for startups.

In this webinar, MIT alumnus Fady Saad:

  • Explains why mature companies can afford delays in responding to a broad set of internal and external issues while startups cannot
  • Reveals how early business and policy decisions can help and/or hurt a startup during subsequent phases of its life cycle
  • Explores how an understanding of these business dynamics can impact the formation and growth of companies in both the short and long term.
