Organic growth

Organic growth is refers to internally generated growth within a firm that does not rely on outside intervention. Almost all companies grow organically during the early stages of their organizational life cycles.

Internal growth strategies rely on efforts generated within the firm itself, such as new product development, other product-related strategies, international expansion, and Internet-driven strategies.
