Bob has enjoyed 100% launch success returning over $1 billion to his investors. He’s founded six companies, sold four and is still running two.
He’s grown two startups to $100m and $156m in sales in 5 years and 3 years respectively.
During our conversation, Bob explains
- The vital importance of having a crystal clear vision for your company and what the 11 elements of a successful vision are that comprise what he calls his Vision Pie.
- The main reasons that startups fail (the most important one accounts for 42% of failures) - and what you should do to avoid being one of them!
- When the data confirm that only 1 in 400 companies secure funding, he shares his evidence-based reasons for this and explains how to ensure that you are one of the companies that do get funded (it's not about your pitch deck!)
