Who is Leo Golba?

You want to know because you have a big picture, or you want help creating one – and you want to bring it to fruition. Have you envisioned the proverbial pyramid with its lofty pinnacle, where so few businesses reside but many want to be? Most companies are found beneath, where the blocks become demonstrably wider and deeper, and far more populated, in descent to the bottom tier.

If you’re considering where you want to be in that pyramid, or where you are now, Leo would tell you to stop. It’s a boring picture. Leo knows that your eyes, heart and brain need to focus elsewhere, with him, on a plane that is uniquely yours.

Who are you?

Maybe you are a founder, inventor or CEO with a product, service and readiness to break ground. Maybe you’re an investor, or an angel with expertise looking for a special place to nurture your nature. Or a majority stockholder with a bigger, better vision for an existing enterprise. Where do you start? Leo knows.

Where do you want to go?

This matters to Leo. He knows that to get a start-up off the ground, or restructure and reboot a stagnant operation – you can’t look, act or be like anyone else. Not today. Not anymore. Unconventional and deeply inspired thinking – Leo knows this is the necessary combination. He’s got it in a big way, and it’s highly contagious.

Einstein said, “The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.”

Leo is one of those guys. His history of building enterprises is a lengthy and ongoing proving ground, in which he takes on carefully selected projects and brings color, character and strategy to the table. Sometimes he even brings capital. Not everyone understands Leo, because they won’t take their eyes off the pyramid. Those who do, and who are ready to leap, find vision where none existed.

Partnership means everything

Leo knows unanimity is critical. A start-up or restructure team – the partners – must think, see and perform as one. He knows how to work with partners, kick open the box together, and break things down to their simplest form. Only in this way can what is real, exciting and right emerge. Leo also brings action plans to the table, and a sharp sense for ‘who’ might fill your most critical operational roles.

Every picture tells a story

Leo Golba is a fine artist, not a deal jockey or a consultant for hire. It has been said of da Vinci that he had a ‘feverishly inventive imagination.’ Leo knows what that is. You will, too, when you get to know Leo. And your business won’t be the same without him.
