Are you aware of the hidden debts that could sink your startup before it even sets sail? In this episode of the Find Your Leadership Confidence Podcast, host Vicki Noethling interviews Drs. Todd and Kim Saxton, award-winning professors at Indiana Universityโ€™s Kelley School of Business and co-authors of *The Titanic Effect*. This insightful book serves as a practical guide for startup founders, investors, and supporters to navigate the hidden “debtbergs” that can derail early-stage ventures. Drawing on decades of expertise in business strategy, entrepreneurship, and venture-funded startups, the Saxtons offer invaluable advice on avoiding common pitfalls and ensuring sustainable growth. The discussion covers key topics such as sources of startup failure, managing nonfinancial obligations, effective product development strategies, scalable business models, and crafting compelling positioning statements.
