What is the DNA of a Startup CEO / Lead Entrepreneur?

Posted on the 12 August 2010 by Sharelomer
Well, I don't think there is such a thing, if there were, then entrepreneurship will be easy :)
I believe that action speaks louder then words and that with success no one can argue, so what makes a good CEO... a LEADER, who just do it and curve step by step to create a reality from a vision...
A leader - and leadership cant be learned but earned :)

gr8 quotes and video inside from Naval from VentrureHacks, Art Williams and more...

This is from the "The ABCs of American Culture":

  1. You can’t argue with success.
  2. Just Do it or Just fucking Do it.
  3. No pain, no gain / no guts, no glory!
So, what are the results we expect to see? an ability to build a team with the right DNA inside, take vision and turn it into reality, raise funding, sell the company to customers and investors...
Here is a list of the charterers we expect to see, that can lead a startup from vision into reality:
First you must be an entrepreneur, I like this definition by Naval Ravikant (@naval) from venture hacks (Movie here):
DNA of an entrepreneur:
  • Passionate
  • Irrational optimistic
  • highly committed
and should be a people person, Its the people! stupid - Find a great partner,
DNA of a co-founder:
  • Very smart
  • Very high energy
  • High integrity.
