Komisar explains that there are different types of entrepreneurs for various stages in a company using an analogy from his book, The Monk and the Riddle. Early stage entrepreneurs, like a bloodhound, seek out resources to get the company off the ground. To grow the company, an operation leader is needed, like a husky that is willing to pull the sled and get the company to a public market liquidity. If the company ever faces difficult situations, a rescuer, like a St. Bernard, tries to save it.
