    Starting, Growing and Leading a Start-Up Company

    Below I’ll share how I answered this question on Quora: Where is the difference between running a 5, 50 and 500 employee company?

    Closing Lecture on the “Entrepreneurial Path” from Irv Grousbeck at Stanford GSB

    A good friend of mine, Kevin, just embarked on a new venture which reminded me of the anxiety/apprehension and general fear that jumping off the cliff of starting a new venture creates.  Reminiscing of when Andrew and I first launched our own start-up, I remember constantly re-reading the transcription of Irv Grousbeck’s last lecture in […]
