We talk a lot about how to grow your startup on this show. But once you’ve mastered the startup part, how do you ensure you don’t get left behind as a leader? Join us in today’s conversation with Dave Grow, CEO of Lucid Software, and investor Gavin Christensen of Kickstart (a VC firm for startups in Utah, Colorado, and the Mountain West) as we bring you both sides of a Perfect Pitch. In this episode, we’ll talk about:

Why Dave was compelled to apologize to the first person he managed at Lucid Software

How Dave developed the habit to “give away his legos”

When it’s valuable to hire specialists versus generalists

What mistakes Gavin has seen founders make that prohibit them from growing with their company
