I’m not the most visionary person in
the world, but I’m very persistent.
I’ll keep going at something until I get it right.
Quoted in How They Did It
- The speakers were very well selected. Frankly it was nice to hear some CEO's who have actually built real companies as opposed to all the startup hype with companies that have no revenue.Glenn LaumeisterCEO, PartSimple
- I enjoyed hearing about the individual ways these panel members achieved success and how they overcame their 'non-successes'. I hope this panel discussion will be one of many.Jeff KrasneyIV Capital
- Really enjoyed the panel, and came away with a couple thoughts that I'll carry with me, probably always. These were cool guys and SO interesting. I could have listened a lot longer.Denise SiegelPresident, Denise Siegel Bronze
- I've worked with start-up and early stage companies and attended scores of events, but I've never seen anything like this: successful, mature entrepreneurs talking about how they did it!Elanor HaasManaging Partner, The Calyx Group
