In early 2007 I was commissioned to write a discussion paper for SEEDA, a UK regional development agency, based on a review of the academic literature on the subject of Growth Entrepreneurship. I subsequently published the paper on Scribd last year (see panel) and to my surprise it has now been read by over 8,000 people and become a ‘Hot Favorite’!
At the same time, I started this learning blog not knowing what sort of interest there might be in my doctoral research into Growth Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurial Team Dynamics. And, to be fair, no real effort was made by me to actively promote the blog, collect followers or make the site SEO friendly. However, the response to my paper has now encouraged me to get serious with social media and become more active in sharing the results of my research along with my work as a high-growth business coach and mentor.
If you’re interested in aspects of high-growth entrepreneruship I will now be posting or a more regular basis and you can also follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/johncavill.
