- What Makes a Strong Startup CEO
Gigi Levy-Weiss, Managing Partner, NFX
Gigi breaks down the role of a CEO in a 5-step cycle that is repeated constantly: 1. Defining a strategy — setting the vector (direction) for your company. 2. Recruiting the right team that is best positioned to execute the strategy. 3. Setting goals that steer your team in the right direction and then letting them “run”. 4. Assisting where needed when your team runs into challenges; or, where the goals show they are off course, setting them back on track. 5. Monitoring progress and periodically reassessing the two initial building blocks – your strategy and your team – to make sure they still make sense. And having the perseverance to adjust accordingly & begin the cycle again.
