In this episode, host Joe Beninato and guest Mike Cassidy of Google’s Project Loon answer viewer questions including:
- What are some best practices for CEOs working with a board member?
- A competitor has emerged from stealth development. They appear to be strong, and several months ahead of us. How should we respond? What are the top priorities?
- Do you think it's fair for founders to pay themselves a market salary or do you think that they should live on half salary or something similar?
- When your companies were acquired, did you go out to find the acquirers or did they come find you? Any advice for how a startup can make itself most desirable to acquirers?
