Marc Kiven

Founder, Signal

Marc Kiven is founder of Signal and a former Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

Signal is a SaaS marketing technology company that helps advertisers, agencies, and publishers identify and connect with their customers. The company has enjoyed five consecutive years of triple digit revenue growth and currently serves some 15,000 worldwide customers.

Marc shares 5 tips for business leaders growing their company culture:

1. Delegate. You can’t grow a company if you’re a control freak.

2. Trust people. You can’t delegate if you don’t trust your people. If you hire someone you should be willing to trust them 100%.

3. Create a lean in culture. Show everybody that you take initiative.

4. Fail fast. Mistakes will be made. Be ready to identify them, learn from them, and move on efficiently.

5. Be inclusive. If you have multiple offices (especially if you’re a global company) make sure every team feels that they’re a meaningful part of the whole.
