Investor Connect Podcast

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Startup founders need to develop leadership skills to run a startup.

Here are some key skills to have:

Know your market and research the competition well.

Demonstrate confidence in difficult situations and be able to make decisions and see them through.

Ability to build a strong team and support them.

Encourage entrepreneurship and innovation within your team and provide compensation accordingly.

Bring a strategic mindset to the group and show others how to think strategically.

Be honest with your team and others.

Maintain humility by admitting you don’t know everything.

Show empathy to your team to demonstrate you understand the challenge they face.

Be accountable for the results even when things go wrong.

Spend more than half the time listening rather than talking when engaging the team, customers, and others. 

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
