There are businesses which don't require hard technology to win — but we rarely pursue those types of opportunities. Technical risk can be mitigated by working with the right founding team. From data storage and big data to biotechnology and networking

Great leaders inspire their teams to achieve the impossible. Great CEOs take many forms — from experienced veteran to first time leader — but they all share the same ability to convince investors, customers, and employees that their vision of the future is an inevitability. And then make it so.
