At SEGITA, we see entrepreneurship as a journey. This is obvious for the startup as it moves from idea validation to fundraising, launch, and growth. But it is also true for the founder.
At the company level, the moving pieces need to align: methodology, strategy, roadmap, team, execution plan, they all get to work in unison. Our tools and guidance help entrepreneurs improve their skills, make better decisions, and ensure their business is on track.
At the founder level, entrepreneurship is a demanding endeavor. A company cannot grow big when its leaders think small. For a startup to succeed, the founder has to evolve as a human, as an entrepreneur, and as a business leader.
