Any Lean Startup That Successfully Grew Into A Lean Company?
Scaling an organization is hard enough on its own but how about scaling the culture and values of a lean startup into a larger business? Do you know someone who has successfully scaled up from a small team into a business without losing the lean qualities? People talk about SAFe and Portfolio Kanban software but was wondering if there are some personal success stories here.

I haven't done this personally, but I do know both founders from a local company (Charleston, South Carolina, USA). Their company, Launchpeer, pitches itself as a "Startup-as-a-Service" company. Over the years they have launched several unique programs, such as an accelerator and a loan program for clients. I really couldn't do their story justice, so I've linked to the article that explains their start. I think you'll gain a lot from checking them out.
