Inorganic growth is the rate of growth of business, sales expansion etc. by increasing output and business reach by acquiring new businesses by way of mergers, acquisitions and take-overs. This kind of growth also takes place due to government directives, leading to enhancement of business in some identified priority sector/area. The inorganic growth rate also factors in the impact of foreign exchange movements or performance of other economies.
As opposed to the organic growth, this kind of growth is affected to a great extent by exogeneous factors. It is also a faster way for companies to grow compared with organic growth (where the main focus is productivity enhancement and cost reduction).
After a merger, the business benefits of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to fuel Inorganic Growth prove to be difficult to realise. Several risks are introduced by this method of Inorganic Growth - a clash in company cultures and the risk of losing customers are some of the main issues. In contrast, with Organic Growth, a business has better control over its growth by planning and deploying more easily accessible internal resources

Over two thirds of startups are built on creaky foundations, and over two thirds of startup costs go directly toward cleaning up legal and practical problems caused by an incomplete or improper start. This book helps you sidestep the messy and expensive clean up process by giving you the specific actions you need to take right from the very beginning.
The typical American startup costs over $30,000 and requires working with over two dozen professionals and service providers before it even opens for businessâand the process is so complex that few founders do it correctly. Their startups errors often go unnoticed until the founder tries to seek outside capital, at which point they can cost thousands of dollars to fix. . . or even completely derail an investment. The Startup Checklist helps you avoid these problems and lay a strong foundation, so you can focus on building your business.

Are You a Driver, an Explorer, a Crusader, or a Captain?
Many factors shape the success or failure of a new business, whether itâs a stand-alone startup or a venture inside a larger corporation. But the most important and least understood of these factors is the personality of the entrepreneurâthe particular combination of beliefs and preferences that drives his or her motivation, decision making, and leadership style. And your builder personality is the one resource you can directly control in growing a business that wins. Simply put, who you are shapes how you build for growth.
Built for Growth decodes the interplay between builder personality and new business success. Using a patented analytic methodology, authors Chris Kuenne and John Danner discovered four distinct types of highly successful entrepreneurial personalitiesâthe Driver, the Explorer, the Crusader, and the Captain. Each is motivated, makes decisions, manages, and leads their businesses differently.
Kuenne and Danner blend pioneering research and exclusive personal interviews to illustrate how each type handles the five dynamic challenges in building a business of lasting value: converting ideas into products, galvanizing individual talent for collaborative impact, transforming buyers into partners, aligning financial and other supporters, and scaling the business.
With assessments and tools, including a brief Builder Personality quiz and in-depth profiles of each builder type, Built for Growth is the ultimate guide for how to play to your strengths, complement and compensate for your gaps, and build a successful businessâfrom startup to scale-up.
