What's the Role of the CEO/Founder?

ba-2

Did a workshop with a group of young business students doing Masters. Asked what was the role of the CEO/founder. After some great debate, they came up with this:

1. Keep business funded - revenues and/or finance (angel/VC) and/or grants

2. Hire great people that can build scale (give away equity if necessary to get them)

3. Focus on product/service that customers will pay money for yes, but MAKE SURE that its also a product/service that partners want to sell

and

4. Have an M&A strategy because Irish businesses don't grown organically.

 

If Carlseberg did smart Masters students.....
