The Lean Startup by Eric Ries. This book is amazing for those starting a company, those who already own a company and those thinking about making that move. It applies science to entrepreneurship, and tells businesses, especially startups, how to start small and simple, then grow through learning, testing, measuring, and rapidly innovating.
OneShift's rapid growth
OneShift launched on June 13th 2012 and within six months, the site had 50,000 users. Genevieve was later approached by a leading player in the recruitment industry to partner with – a move that has seen a mutually beneficial relationship blossom. By July 2013, after only a year of business, OneShift had grown to 100,000 members and garnered 145,000 Facebook likes. The same month saw the team take out three Australian Business Awards including the 2013 Winner for Business Innovation, the 2013 Winner for Enterprise and the 2013 Winner for e-Business. Oneshift is now set to expand its business to the United States and Europe. Watch Genevieve's amazing interview on Studio 10 below.
