Nick Weaver, the co-founder and CEO of high-growth start-up eero, has had to quickly learn a lot about launching and running a company. No lesson has been more important for him than letting go of the idea that he will know exactly what he's doing.
"The biggest message is accepting that you don't need to have all the answers," Weaver tells CNBC. "You have to be curious, and you have to always be willing to learn how to do something new or do something differently."
Weaver and his two Stanford buddies, Amos Schallich and Nate Hardison, launched eero in the summer of 2014. It's a San Francisco-based hardware company that makes devices to improve home WiFi. If you have ever tried to watch a movie on Netflix and your streaming has stopped ad infinitum to "buffer" the signal, then you know the problem that eero is trying to solve.
