Create the Best Culture to Grow Your Company

This time I’d like to share with you my #1 advice on making decisions when it comes to people. Of course, data is important, but especially as an entrepreneur, you probably experienced that developing your intuition is of great value. Enjoy the read!

Is this person an energy-gainer or energy-drainer to me?
This question is one that we advice to ask yourself regularly when it comes to choosing your co-founder and when hiring. Last month, Paul gave a presentation to the Antler cohort in Amsterdam about what it takes to build a successful startup team. The key takeaway? “Learn to listen to your gut feeling, trust your intuition.”

How Lightyear grew from 5 to 120 people in 2 years
“Started from scratch and went back to the laws of nature.” On June 25th our client Lightyear unveiled the first car entirely powered by the sun in a sensational way. At sunset, the car was presented at the Theatre Hangar in Katwijk.
Earlier, Maijke Receveur, Chief Growth of Lightyear, shared her story about building up the culture and structure to facilitate this fast-growing company.

Imagine a world where distance does not matter
The Hardt Hyperloop team revealed their groundbreaking system to switch lanes in a vacuum tube on 1000+ km/h. Sounds surreal, right? We were honored to be at this fascinating presentation and proud we contributed to the development of this exceptional company.

“The right Company Culture due to data and intuition”
In an interview for the Dutch online platform for entrepreneurs ‘De Ondernemer’ (The Entrepreneur), Paul shared his life story, core principles and explained about the methods we use at Fortify. One inspiring quote; “Rest is the entrance to more impact for your company. You can’t see the complexity of your company when you are always running.”
