"In those early days (we weren't) intentional enough about the culture that we wanted to build. I would say ..that it's worth investing into this much, much earlier".
Tim Fung, Co-Founder and CEO, Airtasker.
“Maintaining a healthy company culture is critical for a startup. That culture always tends to disintegrate at around 50 employees, sometimes earlier.”
Joe Procopio, Multi-exit entrepreneur.
Once a business scales and culture unfolds by itself, it’s virtually impossible to change it. Start-ups are in the perfect position to intentionally design their culture with a deep purpose and values-oriented mindset, before it’s too late. It's the golden opportunity that larger businesses don't have - who spend millions attempting to rectify it.
However, the responsibility for building culture rests on the shoulders of Founders and their first employees, who simply don't have the bandwidth to focus on building a strong culture that can not only withstand the pressures of scaling, but create a vibrant, world-class company. A “Lean startup” approach requires them to prioritise product/market fit and ignore culture and team dynamics.
