Good vs. Great Startup Founders

In the startup world, the difference between good and great can make or break you.


After all, about 90% of startups fail (Embroker).


Of the 10% that make it, it’s a safe bet that the founder(s) played a pivotal role.


That’s why I wanted to share this advice from Selina Tobaccowala, co-founder of Evite and President of SurveyMonkey. According to Tobaccowala, great founders:

🔷 Have hard conversations with co-founders before they even start.


🔷 Nail the balance between internal vs. external time management.


🔷 Seek feedback as early on as possible.


🔷 Talk to their users a lot.


🔷 Know how to make hard decisions (e.g., raise more or sell?)


🔷 Talk with their employees to keep momentum.
