Five More Lessons from Scaling Pinterest

I recently published five lessons I learned scaling Pinterest. Confession: it began as 10 lessons, and in a last minute edit, I deleted the second half and hit publish! I got away with it until an eagle-eyed reader noticed that in rule #3, I left in a reference to rule #9…

So because the first five seemed to strike a chord, here’s the second half. These lessons focus more on team and culture building as you enter into hypergrowth. As always, I would love to hear any feedback you have on this post. Drop me a line at tavel (at) greylock (dot) com, or reply in the comments.
