Collective Hub - - FEATURE -

AS THE CO-FOUNDER OF AUS­TRALIA’S LEAD­ING CROWD­FUND­ING PLAT­FORM, ALAN CRABBE KNOWS THAT YOU’RE ONLY AS STRONG AS YOUR TEAM MEM­BERS.

“The main thing that keeps me up at night is when I feel like a team mem­ber is be­com­ing disen­gaged with our goals,” says Alan. “I will lay awake when some­thing is get­ting in the way of my team meet­ing their tar­get.”

With more than 12,000 projects launched through the plat­form, and pledges com­ing in from 105 dif­fer­ent coun­tries, Poz­i­ble has grown from a two-founder op­er­a­tion to a team of 10. In that time, Alan’s wor­ries have shifted from cash flow and tech­ni­cal is­sues to com­pany cul­ture.

“Hon­est and trans­par­ent has gen­er­ally worked for our team,” he says. “If I have con­cerns I try to re­solve things… right away. I typ­i­cally send staff meet­ing in­vites at all times of the day and night.”

He also fights fa­tigue with en­dor­phins. “I’ll get up early and go for a run,” he says. “For me, it’s the first small step to re­solv­ing a prob­lem.” >
