How to be an Effective Startup Leader, by @StephenMeadeLA

Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here.

In this talk from the the Los Angeles Founder Institute, Stephen Meade emphasizes the importance of effective leadership. He says a founder’s goal is to convince others to come on the journey with them, and to ultimately see adopt the vision as their own.

Stephen Meade is a serial entrepreneur who currently acts as chairman for Big Bamboo LLC, a holding company that incubates start-up companies from innovative idea to market-ready. In addition to his position at Big Bamboo, Stephen serves as a mentor for the Los Angeles Founder Institute, which is currently accepting applications for the Spring Semester.

Along with persistence and a clear vision of what you want to accomplish, Stephen says starting a company like climbing a mountain. Having a vision of your end goal (the peak of the mountain), you will have a much greater chance of success. Without your goal in sight, you are far more likely to give up.

If you are interested in meeting with local entrepreneurs like Stephen and getting feedback on your next business idea, join us for one of our many free startup events around the world. The Founder Institute regularly hosts pitching bootcamps, idea workshops, and startup networking events for founders in all stages of company development.
