The Role of CEO as Functional Supervisor- Speaker Series Rewind Episode 1.1

by High Alpha

On July 22nd, 2021, Bolster Co-Founder and CEO Matt Blumberg joined High Alpha Managing Scott Dorsey for a conversation about his new book, Startup CXO.

Unlike other business books, Startup CXO is designed to help each functional leader understand how their function scales, what to anticipate as they scale, and what things to avoid.

Matt approached this topic with deep domain expertise in creating startups, scaling them, and sharing best practices of what works and what doesn’t work for other CEOs and team members in the entrepreneurial community. Prior to Bolster, Matt was the Founder and CEO of Return Path, which he sold in 2019.

In this episode, we revisit Matt’s Speaker Series where you’ll learn:

  • Themes from his new book, Startup CXO
  • Lessons from building, scaling, and selling ReturnPath
  • The role of the CEO as functional supervisor and why they not only have to master the entirety of their role, but deeply understand other functions
  • Candid advice on effectively managing and utilizing your board members and meetings
