Normally every Startup is based on number of 1 to 5 Founders.
There are different case of Solo-Founder succes Startupout of there, but after a while, He should consider to connect with other Co-Founders.
Simplye because creating a Startup is one of the most hard thing to do, as you probabily know.
You should be fast, smart and really focused about the goals, so most part of them have th perfect combination of 3 Memebers / Skills.
The chief executive officer (CEO) is usually the leader in the startup team. However, this does not mean that he is the person that is paid more or has more equity.
Simply put, the CEO is the dreamer and the person whose passion goes beyond anyone’s expectation.
As such, the CEO leads and the others are willing to follow him.
Before anyone believes in the idea of success, it is the CEO who needs to believe in first.
Every successful tech startup must have ‘the dreamer’ as part of it and the person that is always willing to believe in the idea – regardless of how many people out there say it has no future or it is a total failure.
Chief technical officers are a must-have in every tech startup. Simply put, having a CTO in a tech startup is obvious just because of the level of complexity and technology involved. The CTO is labeled as the doer only because he is able to stand up and face the technicalities and potential problems, solving them quickly and actually doing more than dreaming.
Also known as innovation architects, CTOs are the bridge to success from a development side of view. They are the motors that keep the entire operation called a startup active – and are most crucial for tech startups. They are also responsible for hiring web app developers and people with various other skills in the technical domain needed to build the product or service and market it accordingly.
Every startup should have a hustler on board. This is the role of the CSO – who always aims to sell the product built by the team. Known as the chief sales officer, the CSO is a person responsible for turning a brilliant idea into flowing profits.
At the same time, the ‘hustler’ is among the most important roles at each stage of the tech startup. In fact, in the beginning – the CSO can also be the sales guy in the startup. However, if the startup is turning into a company, later on, someone should be appointed to that role accordingly.
From building processes for sales to automating them, hiring sales reps and account managers as well as forecasting sales – the ‘hustler’ known as the CSO is the person in charge for the fuel that drives the product or service forward.
