What happens if a Founder Disappears one day?

Chaos, Confusion and at end of day a desperate effort to search for the missing founder.
Someone can blame the private equity or even tax raids, however what comes across is a trait of high risk taking capacity when can go wrong.
Many founders and CEOs who disappear are not bad managers or bad CEOs, it is only that someone drives their risk appetite, increases it, enhances it or even if risk known, never puts a full stop and makes strong statements to save the CEO from blunders. It could be CFO or third party accountants or auditors or anyone. They could be the brakes to the over ambitious CEO and curb the risks. There is a thumbrule, if someone’s networth is X, safe bet risks are upto 50% of that networth, moderate risks 100% coverage, but what happens if it moves to 1000% of networth, there the trouble begins. So many individuals dabble in finance risk management tools, use AI interventions but can anyone predict that the founder will disappear one day? The sadness around the family members, the worry for all the colleagues, employees and then the self defence stance if the founder again surfaces back. Very important for any country government to understand risk nuances the right way. No use of any AI tool then

Startup dialog

“I am Krishna.. here on, will be referred as Startup, Am not the Lord.. just my parents gave me this name’

Startup ‘I am thoroughly confused.. investors want paying clients. Government introduced schemes and when I go there to check, they mention asset centric startups prefered as banks need protection’

Investor ‘I really cannot invest in individuals who just have PPT with them’

Startup ‘am confused, I thought you invest in great idea’

Investor ‘great proven idea’

Startup ‘it is then not innovation’

Investor ‘ok.. great proven innovative disruptive selling idea where you already made some money’

Startup ‘but I need to still sell’

Investor ‘ok.. I suggest look for accelerators who can invest in you’

Startup ‘I approached many accelerators.. even they want paying models’

No banks willing to invest.. but we declare we will create employment opportunities.. come lets go and eat bread cream in some Irani restaurent.. . need to butter’

100 day plan

100 Day Plan

Organization CEO’s or Entrepreneurs or Founders typically partner with department or employees to create 30-60-90 days plan or 100 days plan and align selves to organization goals, strategies and measures

Sir Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the term “first 100 days” during a July 24, 1933, radio address.

This approach successful if we have a good mentor, coach and proper training.

Most of the department heads need great push as typically have observed many organization heads not able to articulate their vision/mission or are shy to put forth their real requirements. Assumptions can lead to disastrous results. Example a founder just wanted to scope project at one location, department head understood that it needs to be scaled up at multiple locations and makes huge investments, policies around it and after 30days review, the founder realizes that too much money has been spent on over thinking, over engineering of problem statements.

(It is important a proper handholding takes place, specifically if this needs to be implemented by government of any country)
