One of the greatest challenges facing social enterprises is how to scale, and sustainably. Digital transformation, economic shocks, and pandemics add another layer of challenges during the scaling process. With that said, scaling is an effective and efficient way to increase a social enterprise’s impact and solve a crisis but in these types of situations, a radical approach is needed to make a profound and lasting impact. 

Blitzscaling is the science and art of scaling at a rapid pace to serve a large market with sustainable growth. Many for-profit, impact-driven companies that have used the principles of blitzscaling have had some of the greatest impacts on shaping future industries and communities for the better.
