We welcomed 2020 with a gathering of Reflex partners and founders of our portfolio companies. The goal was to trade experiences in informal setting with great food and get to know each other better.
I just finished reading of article by manager, who says he works for Elon Musk, but in fact he works against him! I find it disgusting. Anonymous well poisoner.
Tesla is in war time, billions of dollars are working against its success. War generals must have 100% loyalty of their men and must sacrifice all those who work against them. Moreover, what a general! This one is not hidden in insulated headquarters, he fights right in the middle of the battlefield. He works long hours with his men and sleeps at the factory, if need be. In his 46 years, wow. He also does mistakes. The image of him puffing pot was a mistake. But who does not do mistakes? Only he, who does nothing. Are the critics vowing for the prototype of the grey-hair CEO, only seen in boardrooms with mouthful of nicely rehearsed but empty phrases? He, who is so afraid of making a mistake, that he makes nothing?
A CEO who is focused on winning the war, must build his team on people he can trust. Who are loyal to him and are not bravo soldiers who would trade him in if they see it worth. Of course – building a management upon people whose only qualification would be worshiping their leader wouldn’t work. However, still better than having frenemies there – people, that work against their leader.
Did we put our money where our mouth is? Oh yes. More than €3 million worth of confidence in Elon Musk and the leadership style he represents.
Here is the article.

It’s Friday, just before Christmas, December 19th, 2019. I’m going to work, and the mighty Google reminds me again (?) of “How did you like the Dancing House?”… How many times have I been getting rid of these scary “services”? Where else is my data? BI is simply ubiquitous.

There are hundreds of How-To’s. How to date a partner, how to sum up a CV, how to shake a hand. In our business, you need to know how to get noticed, should you send out a pitch deck. We get dozens of them a week. We try to consider every one, but you know.
