What is the single most important message your sales material should communicate?

The problem. If you can articulate it better than the people experiencing it can, they will subconsciously associate you with the solution.

What makes an awesome customer experience

Dean Colegate

Head of Customer Success

Ada Health

I'm from the B2B SaaS world where we need to work closely with our clients to make sure they are getting maximum value from our platform - otherwise, they won't renew. Value means different things and doesn't necessarily equate to $$$$. At Ada, we're a HealthTech platform and we work with our partners to save them money but, more importantly, to help them deliver better health outcomes to their end-users. Find out what value means to your client and work together on a plan to deliver it.

3 top tips for tech founders

Emma Kay

Co-founder

WalkSafe

  1. Create an app that’s something you’re passionate about. WalkSafe came about because I was so frustrated and upset by violence towards women and others. I wanted to share my own expert safety advice to empower people. I always say it’s the app that shouldn’t have to exist and if it saves one person from assault or worse, then it has done its job.
  2. Stay relevant and listen to your customers. We are now launching our second-generation app and we’ve listened to our users and incorporated their feedback to make WalkSafe even easier to use and provide the best safety technology in the palm of their hand.
  3. Surround yourself with the best talent. I’m not a tech expert but I know a person who is and who can achieve what I want. That goes for the marketing team too. Get the best help and team you can afford.

What are the top 3 traits of a gifted leader?

Willis Owen

  1. Listen, and then be honest. Treat everyone with respect
  2. Do not be afraid to ask. Many problems can be solved by asking the right questions, most around you will be pleased you asked.
  3. Surround yourself with talented, brighter people than you. Don't be afraid of others success, embrace it, nurture it... it will take you forward too.

What 3 things can leaders do to earn the respect of their teams?

Founder

Wevive

Establish a clear WHY for your business. WHAT you do and HOW you do it are not key drivers for stakeholders, whether they are team members or customers. Ideally, WHY should be well defined - thereby creating a road map for future products and services.

  • Allow anyone in the team to change a process
  • Decentralise decision making and let individuals make decisions, not department heads
  • Get to market fast: break stuff, push boundaries and iterate processes
  • Remove unnecessary steps - such as having too many people at meetings (if you must have them) or unnecessary product features
  • Optimise your product or service continuously and stay agile

“Working with Founders Hub has been a great experience. They've been there every step of the way: through project management, development resources and financial support to commercial strategy and marketing. Wonderful (and fun!) talks about what extra features are needed, finding edge cases, and planning extensions for the future. Having been involved in the tech start up community around the UK for nearly a decade now, I can confidently and happily say that Founders Hub have been some of the best, most grounded people I've worked with: they get things done.”

“Every business needs a driver… and working with the Founders Hub is like driving with SatNav. The directions were clear from day one and our early growth plans were well resourced and well executed. We took the shortest path from inception to profitability and (unexpectedly) exited successfully in our second year of trading. I have no hesitation recommending Founders Hub as a proven growth agent, the team bring bags of experience and hard-to-believe levels of dedication to the table. ”
