With so many factors cropping up for the CEO as you maneuver through a company survival plan it can be overwhelming. In previous survival tips, I have stressed the importance of preserving capital, adjusting forecasts and rewarding long term employees. I recently discussed with Brandon Shelton, Founder and Managing Partner, Task Force X Capital (TFX), specific tips to help early stage CEOs get through this challenging time. TFX is a military veteran-led advisory and venture capital firm focused on growing seed and early-stage startups which are led by military veterans. Brandon is the type of venture capitalist that every early stage company needs. He works alongside his portfolio of founders and CEOs to drive success. He shares his expansive contacts and resources freely to support his portfolio 24/7. As an Army officer, Brandon knows leadership and brings it to TFX’s portfolio companies beyond the traditional VC firm. When Brandon offers advice, early stage companies benefit by heeding his words. Brandon and I put our heads together to create this valuable list of survival actions.
