The Transform Your Confidence Show

Ep 46: Pt. 2 - Why The CEO Is The Most Creative Member Of Hyper Successful Companies, With Ranj Bath

Episode Summary

💡 Are you struggling with leading your company through scale, fundraising, or an IPO? Then this 2-part series of ‘The Transform Your Confidence Show’ is for you! In this week’s theme of Leadership & Advocacy, I launch a new series called ‘A CEO’s Journey’, where my goal is to walk you through a lived experience with a successful CEO, in a 2-part series called: “Why The CEO Is The Most Creative Member Of Hyper Successful Companies.” — My guest is the CEO of Nurosene, RANJ BATH, an innovative app solution with a mission to build better brain health, which recently IPOed after barely a year since inception. — Here’s what we cover in part 2 of this 2-part series: ✅ I asked Ranj why he choose to go the IPO route to fund raise so early in the company’s journey - (having only been in existence for a year) - over the usual suspects like crowdfunding, hedge funds, angel investments, or venture capital raises. His answer is indicative of his clear foresight and his innovative thinking as a CEO. ✅ He shared his strategic goal with the funds raised and the increased valuation of the company, as well as advising on when it’s the right time to raise. ✅ He then went into giving tips on benchmarks on when to tradition fundraise and when to IPO. ✅ I questioned him about the appalling stats on funding for women founded companies and his answer was interesting – watch the interview to know what he said! ✅ And we close off by Ranj sharing what he has learned in his role as a creative CEO, that he feels everyone needs to know. — Here’s a bit about Ranj: 🌟 Ranj moved from England to the U.S. in 2001, after being offered a prominent position at Intel, where he stayed for 7 years before co-founding his own company Desi Hits in 2006, where the investors included Jimmy Iovine and collaborations were ripe with celebrities like Lady Gaga, Nicole Scherzinger, and Priyanka Chopra. 🌟 In 2013, he moved to Beats as the Vice President, Corporate Strategy & Business Development, and witnessed the 3 billion dollar acquisition of Beats by Apple. 🌟 He then moved onto Blippar, where he joined as the Senior Vice President, Global Head of Consumer Marketing in 2016 and then to Cogni as its Chief Marketing Officer in 2018. 🌟 Then he took the position of CEO of Toronto based mental health app Nurosene in 2020, where he has already led the company through an IPO barely a year after inception. 🌟 Ranj is also an avid investor where he was an early stage investor in start-ups like Bulletproof and Classpass, that have now reached over $1Billion valuations. — 📌 Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and Spotify, search ‘The Transform Your Confidence Show’ 📌 Subscribe to our YouTube channel at ‘The Open Chest Confidence Academy’ — #TheOpenChestConfidenceAcademy #RajGirn #Founder #TheTransformYourConfidenceShow #Podcast #Media #OnlineMedia #Online #RanjBath #Nurosene #CEO #Leader #Business #Entrepreneur #Beats #DesiHits #Blippar #Intel #Cogni #Apple #Bulletproof #ClassPass #Marketing #Leadership #CommunityBuilding #Networking #ThoughtLeader #Communications #Executive #Professional
