Scaling Up is Hard to Do

Which is harder to pull off successfully, starting up a tech business, or scaling it? Since more than 90% pf startups fail to survive even two years, it might be the former. But at least startups have decades of best practices and a strong ecosystem of angels, incubators, accelerators, and VC firm to call on. Unfortunately, scaling up still seems to be a more perilous journey than it should be. One reason for this, I believe, is premature scaling.
