Best Career Advice

“Be able to adapt to change in technology. Reassess your assumptions about what you think of how things work every couple of years. In this case, every couple of months.”

 

Career Challenge

I had a venture at a very young age, I raised over what today would be six to $10 million in Series A venture capital from Harvard University. And we started a company that was right in the center of desktop publishing. We couldn’t have picked a better time for it. And I thought that I had picked the right co-founder. During that whole experience what I discovered was I had the wrong engineering partner. By the time that we had gotten the product ready for launch in the marketplace, we had a huge switch in the industry standard away from what then was OS/2, IBM’s operating system, to Windows. And so our product was irrelevant because we’d have to recode, it would have taken three years to do it. So the VCs decide to basically kill the company off.”
