Alan Crabbe, CEO of Pozible
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.” >
