I have been thinking about the ideas, strategy and purpose behind the startup that my team and I are building together. As the “CEO” I find one of my greatest tasks is to keep vision clear, my team aligned and the purpose as our focus. I am certain that it is these three things that will make us successful. While we will develop some of the most powerful, cutting edge and revolutionary software, services and experiences in our field, but it is these core practices that will make it successful.
As a founder I constantly think about the iterations of what we are creating that help us find the funding, support and partnership necessary to develop, launch and grow. But, I find that my most fulfilling role as a founder is building our team. I love finding the right teammates. I love seeing the team become a unit. I love helping us align our language and purpose. I love seeing our team get excited together, problem solve together and create together. And, I love doing life with our team. We are a powerful group of leaders and that is a literal statement!
