“Startups are businesses at their most vulnerable and uncertain stage. We all forget that a startup is run by people who are invested in an outcome broader than their roles, broader than themselves. They have taken an enormous risk that needs to pay off one way or another. My job is to make sure that we see them through the changes and that the team doesn’t lose sight of the final destination.”
