Sample text

Entrepreneurs have to clearly understand where they bring value to the equation. That means that if you hit a point of time where as the founder your skills do not match up with what the company needs, you are not only willing to step aside but to help in the transition process to bring in somebody who is a better manager to run the company. You must have the attitude that you have started the company, butthat the company is something which has its own right to live and grow, and you must let others take it over who can grow it more.

Many companies die because the founders refuse to Iet go. It is like stifling your child. At a certain age, you have to Iet your child go and be free. To make its own decisions, and live its own Iife. Therefore you need to bring in professional management early enough. Also, because it takes usually at least six months until you have found talented management. Bringing on a good executive early is one of those decisions in the early stage which will help you to avoid many problems on the way. And when you bring in experienced management, you really will have to give up control.

If it is a long-term opportunity you have more time to build your company. So if you are starting in a sector where there is not a lot of competition or which is not changing rapidly, you can grow slower, because the time window for the market opportunity is larger. That has several advantages. First, the entrepreneur can learn fast enough to keep up so that he will not necessarily have to hire experienced management. Secondly, he has to give up less equity to outside investors. There are also lots of opportunities where companies get built over long periods of time.
