In 2007, Marc Andreessen wrote a blog post titled “How to hire a professional CEO.” The post was short. Here it goes in full: Don’t. If you don’t have anyone on your founding team capable of being CEO, sell your company—now. A few years later, Ben Horowitz (Marc’s cofounder at Andreessen Horowitz) wrote in a bit more detail 😉 about why they prefer to fund companies with founder CEOs. I hope you enjoy today’s founder-focused newsletter.
Great to read the Deliotte Summer Research and see travel in a healthy place despite financial challenges globally.
