At Aspen Capital Fund we help act as an instrumental team player to help avoid costly mistakes. One common and overlooked process that every business can implement without cost is building a team. A team should consist of someone who can routinely give feedback and help your business stay on track. We become the businesses biggest ally.
Individuals play the game, but teams beat the odds
SEAL Team saying
An incredibly common problem that causes startups to fail is a weak team. Weak teams make mistakes in multiple areas:
- They are often weak on strategy, building a product that no-one wants to buy as they failed to do enough work to validate the ideas before and during development. This can carry through to poorly thought through go-to-market strategies.
- They are usually poor at execution, which leads to issues with the product not getting built correctly or on time, and the go-to market execution will be poorly implemented.
- They will build weak teams below them. There is the well proven saying: A players hire A players, and B players only get to hire C players (because B players don’t want to work for other B players). So the rest of the company will end up as weak, and poor execution will be rampant.
Does your team:
- Have the necessary experience it takes to deliver what they have set out to do?
- Have the insight to identify their own weaknesses and hire good people to complement them?
- Constructively deal with all the challenges that are and will occur during the life-cycle of a company?
At Aspen Capital Fund we help act as an instrumental team player to help with the above.
