Amos Schwartzfarb of Techstars
In this episode, Hall interviews Amos Schwartzfarb, managing director of Techstars Austin, a horizontal accelerator that focuses on the founding team and their ability to build a big business. Amos talks about the importance of finding a CEO that has a track record of “getting things done” and is passionate about their business. Amos details three critical things that every CEO needs to be able to do:
1. Build and drive a metrics-driven business.
2. Articulate your business to anyone, anywhere.
3. Know how to ask for funding, using language, strategy, and nuance.
Amos also discusses some of the reasons entrepreneurs are successful (or not), and some red flags he’s learned to watch out for.
