Road Untraveled: Sheel Tyle (Amplo) on building companies that matter, false rallies in the stock market, and the perseverance of “downturn founders”.


Sheel Tyle, Founder and CEO, Amplo

Key Takeaways:

1. Public market run up is a result of investors struggling to find good places to deploy capital. Low interest rates and an increase in trading volumes can create false rallies, and don’t necessarily suggest strong fundamentals.

2. Advice to Founders: Hope for the best and plan for the worst. 

3. Treat employees like partners, not commodities. Don’t be afraid to share the rationale with your employees, and allow them to be a part of the journey.

4. The perseverance required to build during a downturn often leads to the creation of some of the greatest companies.
