  1. Foundation: Newly established businesses are focused on opportunity.
  2. Growth: Companies that make it through the foundation stage typically experience rapid growth.

  4. Cultural Lock-In: The company is fighting for its very survival. Prices are reduced to avoid competition, but this strategy will not last forever.
