President of On Location Tours

  1. Organize our projects in Monday.com so we have a real plan of what we will accomplish when, as well as a roadmap of how we will get there. This will eliminate a lot of back and forth communication, unnecessary emails, will ensure that everyone is working efficiently, and make us feel that we are working toward something, and together.
  2. To only work on the 20% that will bring us in revenue versus the 80% that may or may not bring in revenue, especially with where we are in this “Covid world” of uncertainty.
  3. Work on the new arm of our company, an app that has been in the plans for about a decade now and just recently launched (the app covers filming locations via gps), and is the first one of its kind.

  1. Expand our full team to a staff of 32 and to increase our billings 3x what they currently are.
  2. To publish 3 books, 2 on a global scale for educational purposes and 1 that will have national coverage that will be the start of a new company.
  3. And, as a personal goal, I would like to develop a synergized team that allows us to complete tasks and projects seamlessly.

Co-founder of Women's Weekend Film Challenge

  1. Expand our virtual programming.
  2. Grow our existing relationships with sponsors, donors, advisers and supporters, which is more challenging when it’s impossible to connect in person.
  3. My co-founder, Tracy, and I plan to delegate more responsibilities to our
    team, which is critical to our organization’s growth. Up until 2020, the two of us were juggling everything that needed to be done for our grassroots initiative because we didn’t yet have the funds to build our team. Going forward, we need to free up more of our time to focus on future planning and expansion.

Kevin Geary

CEO at Digital Gravy

  1. Zero work on the weekends. I want to finally be able to turn everything off on the weekends and focus 100% on family, friends, and household.
  2. Health benefits for my entire team. By the end of 2021 I want my
    team to have an employer-sponsored health insurance plan. This is something we haven’t been able to do yet, but I feel it’s within reach in 2021.
  3. Donate Web Design & Development to 3 Non-Profits. We want to make a bigger impact in 2021 and the best way we can do this is offer web design, development, and online marketing for free to three non-profit organizations. We’ll be choosing these organizations in January to discuss logistics.

Managing Director of Gremlin Works

  1. The challenges of 2020 have led us to trial working remotely. This has been an undoubted success, although we feel that some human interaction is still required. We’re currently looking at the feasibility of downsizing our offices, with staff sharing desk space and alternating between working at home and in the office.
  2. Diversify our income streams by launching our own digital products.
  3. Move an increasing amount of our fulfilment work to external contractors, to allow us the flexibility to deal with any sharp up or downturns.

Malte Scholz

CEO of AirFocus

2020 was very tough on everybody and forced us to move to
the online workplace.

However, this change brought many businesses the possibility of scouting some of the best talents, regardless of their location.

I have been a part of many diverse teams and I know how strong they are, thanks to the rich experience people bring.

There are always dissenting opinions, live debates and great ideas present in every diverse team which can only help strengthen a business.

Therefore, my priority in 2021 will be to attract and hire new employees that come from different backgrounds.

Founder & Director of Assist-o

  1. Increase team size. We want to increase our team size to at least 50
    people by the end of 2021. We’ve already started working towards this goal and we’re expecting to hire 6 people in January. Increasing our team is, of course, connected to our other goals, such as expanding the scope of the services we offer and expanding to other markets.
  2. Provide more personal and professional growth. We want to provide our team with more continued education in order to equip them with additional skills and knowledge, as well as improve existing skills in the company. This will allow us to be more efficient and expand our horizons.
  3. Build Assist-o platform. We will start working on our own platform, complete with a client portal, so that we can do everything internally and customize the features. The platform will be specific to our needs and enable us to work more easily.

CEO of GetEmail.io

  1. More online sales and prospect
    The modes like Cold emails, messages and online calls are the instruments of success. So, with GetEmail I would take this as an opportunity and will induce new tools and algorithms which can find relevant and authentic information about the prospect.
  2. New tech to bring change
    Artificial intelligence, big data and machine learning is now rapidly penetrating into sales and prospects. AI is finding the relevant information from the web and crafting the personalised emails for your prospect. Nowadays, You can’t know whether the mail is sent by AI or a human. AI is becoming more human like. GetEmail does the same. So, my goal is to spread this change and let people know how they can adapt new technologies to make their lives easier.
  3. Changing the B2B scenario
    The B2B market is having less products than B2C. It is a field which doesn’t touch all the lives directly. The conventional ways to find people with yellow pages, directories, social media and so on are not that much productive ways. People spend hours of the time completing their spreadsheets of contacts. With GetEmail, I want to bring a change. I am not just encouraging my startup but also The whole market should adapt new ways to reach people. Imagine an AI which does all your monotonous work and only
    the creative and critical ones are on you! Life will be more efficient and easier.

CEO & Co-Founder of Revv

We are slating for the most optimal digitization this year.

Although we wished for a short-lived health crisis and economic downturn, we now know
we should be preparing for the long haul.

Five steps to digitization are adopting a modern accounting software, upgrading my website, integrating a simple CRM, transforming into a remote office on Zoom, and finally going paperless with electronic signature.
