Jack Richardson is one of the owners of Robo.CEO, an operating system that helps self-organising companies online. Jack was a professional poker player for 9 years before starting his own company. He built good relationships whilst in this profession and it’s where he met his fellow business partners. Together they formed the idea for Robo.CEO.
Robo.CEO is an operating system for running self-organising companies online. It is a platform built to increase your company’s capacity to self-organise successfully.
In self-organising systems, pattern formation happens through internal system interactions, without the action of outside influences.
Everyone has the power to make their own decisions. The leaders and teams aren’t set in stone, but they emerge based on the needs and capabilities of the business at any given time.
The Robo.CEO platform acts as an all-in-one communication backbone for all of a company’s internal operations. It gives you one place to manage tasks, share ideas, make decisions, set objectives, and build up data to help you learn. Workflows and playbooks help towards building better work practices, from the bottom up.
Robo.CEO has 2 main products. Their goal is to build tools for the remote-first, self-organised future of work.
This is a remote working tool that helps employees collectively define plans of action. It combines kickstarter with a suggestion box so you can crowdsource initiatives and only focus on the things your team loves.
The Online Home for Remote Teams
This Robo Operating System combines chat, video chat, task management and a knowledge base that helps everyone access a collective brain. This can help people self-manage and be more productive.
The crowdsourcing functionality of TealBox combines with the communication functionality from the Robo Operating System to create the Robo Ecosystem. This lets individuals share new ideas and form teams to turn the best of these ideas into reality.
How to execute a vision for business
“In the beginning, it was a steep learning curve which is to be expected. Starting a new company is a challenge. During this time we learned valuable insights into what is involved in setting up a Limited Company. We had a great vision of where we wanted to be but we needed to clearly define the product first. We knew we had to focus on our product for the vision to become a reality.”
“The company is set up in Ireland and Finland. We encountered a few issues when we were setting up in Finland but these were eventually resolved. Setting up in Ireland was an easier task. We used a lawyer who guided us through the process of setting up the company. This route was very straightforward for getting started initially.”
Finding the right accountant
“We found Accountant Online by searching online as we were looking for an accountant. The website was very informative, which helped to inform our decisions. We had looked at similar competitors but decided to use Accountant Online Accountancy Services because the price point was good. All the services they provided were competitively priced. They were very capable of meeting our requirements. I found the Company Secretary service very effective and of good value.”
We had a positive experience, and it is good to have peace of mind that our accounts are taken care of.
