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 problem-solving skills to run a business.

Here’s a list of key skills to develop:

  1. Critical thinking - ability to analyze the key factors around a situation and find the real problem to be solved.
  2. Decision-making - ability to choose the right solution and see it through to implementation.
  3. Lateral thinking - can think outside the box and come up with solutions that take into account other factors.
  4. Creativity - ability to generate solutions by brainstorming and looking for similar models and sources of inspiration elsewhere and applying to the problem.
  5. Determination - ability to test and try several solutions to find the right fit. 
  6. Adaptability - ability to adapt to new situations and try new solutions.
  7. Self-discipline - ability to stay focused on the problem until you find the right solution.
  8. Positivity - ability to stay positive about finding a solution and not giving up.
  9. Curiosity - ability to apply curiosity to the problem to spur new solutions.
  10. Networking - ability to connect with others to find a solution.
