Alex Babin | CEO | Zero Systems

As CEO of a venture-backed startup, I obviously wear many hats in the service of building a great company. At Zero, I’m primarily responsible for: “Keeping the vision” — making sure everyone on the team knows where we’re trying to go, and why. In the jet blast of our day-to-day work, is easy — and fatal — to lose sight of this. My job is to make sure nobody does. Making sure I know exactly what our customers need, and getting it built. Leading a growing high-performing team of very smart people in a very dynamic, highly competitive business environment. When it comes to this, I think Bruce Springsteen said it best: “Nobody wins unless everybody wins.” Staying on top of both what’s going on in both the legal world and AI, and what’s coming next. Showing up every morning energized, focused and on my game — and helping everyone else do the same. And finally — making it all fun.
