Episode 056 – Roland Siebelink

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #56 with Roland Siebelink – The Commitment Sculptor – Your Guide from Startup to Scaleup.

Roland Siebelink is a 25+ year veteran of Internet business, entrepreneurship and digital marketing. He is a former landslide winner of the Silicon Valley Founder Showcase.

Roland was the CEO and co-founder of Topicmarks, acquired by Tagged, he has served in a variety of executive, strategy, product and advisory roles to tech CEOs and has worked and lived in four countries and speaks six languages.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • Helping startup founders scale up their companies.
  • From working with startups to being a coach for startups.
  • Bridging the technological product side towards the market sales & customer satisfaction.
  • You don’t get people to agree; you get people to commit.
  • A person convinced against their will is of the same opinion still.
  • Facilitators are the glue that holds operations together.
  • Founders are a special breed of people.
  • Most founders have strong personalities resulting in overconfidence.
  • Some of the  best clients are those who love challenges.
  • Fighting to make vulnerable startups into world-class companies that can stand on their own.
  • Doing your own version of coaching for your own business.
  • Building startups: for acquisition or to be market leaders?
  • Avoid emulating bigger competitors all the time. Always find a better way to grow.

Recommended tools: 

  • Quarterly Workshops and Reviews
  • Decision Sheets
  • Tech Scale Ups

The HERO Challenge

Today on the show, Roland Siebelink challenged Rick and Rob to be guests on The HERO Show.

Roland thinks that Rick is a fantastic interview because he has a longer entrepreneurial story than most. It took him almost 15 years to reach an amazing exit.

Roland also challenged Rob, an early stage entrepreneur, who is working on real problems to change the world through wind energy.
