Are you a great founder?

Field work

The other day I read an interesting article on Noteworthy – The Journal Blog about some of the traits that characterizes a great founder. The article was written by Jess Li and based on her talking to more than 100 founders in her role as a VC.

I have been fascinated by some time by the idea of being able to somehow predict who will stand out from the crowd in a couple of years time as founders of a great startup, and I want to pursue the idea further.

So, if you could spare a few minutes of your time, I would love for you to help me answer a few questions in this survey. The tradeoff is simple: You help me get better insights and move forward on the work, and I give you a final short report about how things look from the survey, which you can use to benchmark yourself against.

Sounds interesting? Then please help me out. And many thanks in advance for doing so.

Progress report – May 2019

News

It’s been a month since I joined inQvation Studio, and what a month it has been; fastpaced, fun and with a lot of excitement about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

I have spent the month catching up on all the thinking that has gone into building the Studio idea. Furthermore I have been fortunate enough to be able to contribute to a couple of projects already, and I am very grateful of how that has turned out and the feedback, I have received. There are just cool, skilled, fun and generous people all over, and I never grow tired of people who passionately care about what we are all doing together.

On top of that we have spent some time getting bits and pieces in play that will help us in our exploration work going forward. Essentially we’re preparing for takeoff full well knowing that (more than) one or two things will go very differently than according to plan. The coming months will have us launch properly and will show whether we can make our trajectory. Based on the first month, I am very optimistic. Onwards and upwards.
