How To Grow A Company From $2M to $100M
Jim Estill, CEO DDE Media Company
Why do some businesses fail to grow? Why do some businesses grow then fail? What separates the successful from the failures? Learn the secrets of how to successfully scale your business from Jim Estill, the closing Keynote Speaker at the Annual Retreat.
Jim Estill started a technology distribution company from the trunk of his car. He grew that to $350,000,000 in sales. One claim to fame was 99 consecutively profitable quarters prior to selling. He then ran the company that bought his from $800,000,000 to $2 Billion.
He then retired for the first time and moved to NY to start an early stage tech fund. As a tech person, he had invested in, advised, mentored and been a board member of many tech companies including Blackberry where he sat on the board since before they were public for 13 years. Starting a VC was a natural extension of this. He has invested in over 150 start ups and sold 25 of them.
Jim has fantastic lessons of success and failure to share with everyone at the Annual Retreat on Friday afternoon so plan to stay right until the end!
