WORKSHOP

Going from Founder to CEO

How to learn all the things you're supposed to know, but don't. A crash course in startup CEO skills.
July 11, 2024
Ask a room full of founders how many want to build a large company and you'll see a sea of hands raised. 
They'll say they want to build the next Shopify, Airbnb or Uber. 
But do you know how many employees Uber has? 30k... 
Ask that same room of founders how many of them know how to manage even 100 employees well, let alone 30,000, and the raised hands all but disappear. 
So where does a founder go to learn such skills? Enjoy The Work is a global startup advisory firm based in the San Francisco Bay Area that has guided the journey of more than 160 startups since 2015.
