Here’s Great Tip: Nail it, Scale it, Sail it – an entrepreneurial journey | Loredana Pădurean | TEDxCluj


Here is Something You Should See…


Why only 4% of the entrepreneurs are successful while all others fail? Loredana Pădurean, co-author of Nail It, Scale It, Sale It, builds a compelling case around outdoor activities metaphors. While the early-stage entrepreneur is a jungle trekker, a more established organization is a mountain hiker. Prof. Dr. Loredana Pădurean is the Associate Dean of the newly established Asia School of Business in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in collaboration with MIT Sloan School of Management. She is an International Faculty Fellow at MIT Sloan in Cambridge, MA, USA with global teaching and speaking experience in US, India, Italy, Switzerland, Malaysia, Australia and beyond.
She is a serial failed entrepreneur with interesting takeaways from the world of hospitality, consulting and education that are captured in her most recent work Nail it, Scale it, Sail it, a co-authored research that addresses the need to understand the development and evolution of start-ups. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

  1. While the concept of jungle in business has been correct, so many small businesses have failed during COVID. I hope that we have learned more lessons than just survival and that small businesses are the key to future growth and we people need to support the small ones.

  2. personally i think any one who thinks starting their own business is going to be a piece of cake is probably unhinged. doesn't matter how much of an expert you are, how intelligent you think you might be – as this lady said, it is a jungle out there, and i would say not just one steep mountain but several. i really appreciated her matter of fact approach with this talk, very informative.

  3. It's never smooth sailing! There really are so many facets to being successful when starting from scratch. There is an abundance of spot on points throughout this though, a lot of warnings for those of us just starting out. I wish I had seen this 6 months ago! But at least it'll help now.
