Establishing Your Fiscal Culture, by Malcolm Lotzof
In this talk from the Chicago Founder Institute, Malcolm Lotzof explains the various types of revenue models for early-stage companies. He starts by reminding founders to consider their personal goals when planning their financial models and elaborates on the idea that culture of your business can determine the financial outcome.
Malcolm Lotzof is the CEO and co-founder of INXPO Inc, the leading provider of Social Business TV and Online Events. At INXPO, he is responsible for setting and driving the company’s vision, which is to transform the way organizations cost effectively communicate with their employees, clients, partners, vendors and prospects.
Malcolm ends the talk by relating revenues and costs to company culture. He says that employees and the culture they represent are your greatest source of value. When you establish a culture of accountability, knowledge, and care, your business will inevitably be on the path to financial success.
