Join us on Thursday, January 30th at Columbia University’s Career Design Lab in San Francisco, as we hold the final event in our 4-part series showcasing the “Traction Gap” framework for early-stage startups. The series is geared toward startup founders, entrepreneurial product managers, and corporate innovators.

Part 4 will once again feature Bruce Cleveland, Founding Partner of Wildcat Ventures, and author of the book Traversing the Traction Gap (2019). The book lays out a detailed step-by-step process that startup teams can use to go from ideation to preparing for scale—a modern-day playbook that addresses the high failure rate of startups and how to minimize it.

In our final session with Bruce, we’ll examine the “Go-To-Scale” phase of startup development and hear from current startup founders who have relied on the Traction Gap framework as a practical guide—helping them make sense of where they are in their company’s trajectory. The session will include a case study by Michael Fernandez, CEO of Threadeo, a startup offering AI-enabled workflow software and services. Threadeo was a 2nd Place Finalist in the One Harvard New Venture Competition (2019).
