How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Fluid, friendly, collaborative, communicative, KPI and data-driven, open to ideas, manage for results;
Have fun, work hard, succeed.

As an Advisor

I ask questions.
Start with an exploration of the premise, the market/industry, the product/service, distribution (customer acquisition), monetization.
Then the team, resources and strategy.
Identify issues that need attention, explore options and approaches to address them.
Prioritize, and clear the path for priorities.
Call me when there is a problem you want to think thru.
