S6E8: Avoiding the “entrepreneur’s curse”, with Janus Nielsen, CEO of AnyTech365

Janus Nielsen (CEO of AnyTech365, Europe's 27th fastest growing company and #2 in Spain) talks with Xquadrant's Founder Richard Medcalf.

We're continuing our season on "Secrets of Scaling", where the CEOs from some of the fastest-growing companies in Europe and the USA (as measured by the Financial Times top 1000 rankings) share what's propelled their growth, what's held them back - and explore what it will take to reach the next level.

In this conversation, you’ll learn:

  • The two leadership principles that have allowed Janus to scale to over 400 people in 7 years
  • What the "entrepreneur's curse" is, and the keys to building a committed team
  • The #1 structural mistake that slowed the business's growth
  • Why paying top-notch salaries ended up weakening the team
  • How to take your best leadership traits, and re-apply them on higher-impact areas (and how Janus applies this principle every time he visits a restaurant)

“Offering the best financial package in the area caused more problems than I expected!"
