This book, an Amazon Bestseller and Inc. Original Imprint, is intended to help entrepreneurs decide how big they want their businesses to grow, how quickly, how much risk they want to take, and how much leverage they want to use. My hope is this book will help readers challenge their assumptions and beliefs about what they want their businesses to achieve, and find their financing comfort zone to foster their goals. The book is full of real stories and vignettes that entrepreneurs can relate to.

The Growth Dilemma

Where are you in your business journey?

Most entrepreneurs are looking for ways to push their companies to grow and get bigger. But they struggle with decisions about how big they want to become, how much money to keep investing in their company, and how to even go about it. They want more, but they’re not sure how to think about the problems, obligations, and risk that come with growth. This is the growth dilemma.


In The Growth Dilemma, Ami Kassar, author and nationally renowned expert on access to capital for entrepreneurs, shows you how to sort through your choices to build your business to the size and complexity that makes the most sense for you. He’ll walk you through exercises that help you:

Through the profiles of fifteen real entrepreneurs and companies, you’ll also be able to see, throughout the book, examples of how different financing decisions affect every kind of business. As you apply the strategies you learn, you’ll find the financing structure that will help you reach your goals.
