Want to know ‘who’ we’re looking for in a Founder? Carry on reading and see if we’re describing you below in our list of desirable Founder attributes …
Honestly, some of the issues in business, as in life, can be foreseen and prepared for, but others can be so random that they take you by surprise. You might not have the best business problem solving skills right now because it might be that you’ve been employed all your working life and never had to manage all of the different working systems that come together when you’re running your own company, however, as long as you like to tackle issues head on and can handle plan a’s, plan b’s and plan z’s, that’s fine. That’s the attitude to success we need.
Keen to learn and move forwards
Self-improvers please apply to us. Apply to us if you’ve spent a while looking at how other people have managed their companies and are intrigued to find out how to do it for yourself and get it right. We can teach you how to excel and grow your skills. If you’re the kind of person who hates hearing when they’re going off track or doesn’t have any kind of willingness to listen, learn and apply then please apply somewhere else. It will become evident very quickly that we are not meant to be working together.Good all-rounder
It might be that in the past you’ve been a techie who likes to hide away but to get your idea off the ground you’re going to have to be able to converse with a large amount of people and share your concept. It’s no good saying that you can’t spearhead your idea – if you don’t show true belief in its benefits then people just aren’t going to jump on board, including us. Take a deep breath, prepare a 30 second sum up pitch, and a one minute one. Winston Churchill practiced his speeches in front of the mirror – try that to see if it helps. Become comfortable with talking about your idea.
