I believe that C-Level professionals need to understand what is involved in starting and growing successful companies: how to build and motivate a great team, how to define and refine an awesome product, how to win and nurture your first customers and channel partners, and how to grow the business internationally.I have firsthand experience of this. I have successfully taken technology and renewable products to worldwide markets built operations team to support and helped to secure the financial resources to accomplish it. I want to share my experience and help you build a successful company.
If you are interested in building a world class technology company, and need help from a seasoned professional, we should be talking. I have worked across a range of technologies all leading edge and disruptive in the market place. There are a few key attributes that you need to build a company from the ground up, I have lived them for the last 15 or more years. I have been on the senior management and board of six companies who grew and were either listed (IPO) or acquired,raising over $200m in the process.I know what it takes to build a company and be successful, but I am not as naïve to think I know it all, I don’t know the Venture Capital world as well as the VC does for example, but he does not know my world as well as I do, to succeed you need to have a good team, and MY PASSION IS TO MAKE THE TEAM SUCCEED,what ever it takes
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.
