How many Software Engineers does it take to launch a Startup?
09 June, 2021
> The answer is 5. That’s it; you need a team with a minimum of five Software Engineers to launch a Startup. If you want to know how I got to that number, stick around. The practical answer to that question is also one. One qualified engineer is more than enough to write a good piece of code to launch a startup. The only factor playing against launching any company with a team of one is that everything moves slowly and when that one person is unavailable, there is nobody else to come to the res
Are you the driver or a passenger in your own career?
21 May, 2021
People often think of their career as something that you develop inside a company. This is only partially true. It is indeed true that a professional’s career growth is more often than not determined by the company they work for, and to move up, specific required goals have to be achieved along the way. Suppose you define career growth solely as the salary, bonus, and benefit brackets that a professional acquires as the job title grows in seniority. In that case, it is 100% true that your caree
Why we do Performance Review Meetings every 30 to 45 days at Exponential Ventures
11 May, 2021
> Performance Review Meetings: Dreaded by some, feared by others, loved by the greatest, and misunderstood by almost all. The scene seems to come straight out of a sitcom. A team member and his manager awkwardly enter into an empty conference room booked for an hour several months ago for the dreaded end of the year performance review. The manager dreads the conversation, but she is confident that the notes collected throughout the year in her notepad will help her get through the meeting. The f

The Art of Hiring Data Scientists
09 February, 2021
The amount of companies hiring out Data Scientists thinking that they're going to come in, wave a wand and solve all problems with AI is appalling. This is not good for the industry, the companies, or the Data Scientists. Disrupting an industry takes a lot more than hiring a couple of Data Scientists and handing them a wishlist. Solving real problems with Artificial Intelligence requires experience across several technical domains that start with the hardware and ends with the production model,
Experiences with Fail Safer
28 February, 2015
During the past couple weeks I have been slowly bringing www.failsafer.com [http://www.failsafer.com] to a temporary halt. The whole process is not over yet, but although this halt isn’t meant to be permanent. Fail Safer have been a great entrepreneurial and technological experience in my life, and it pains me to not have the time I wish I could have to get past the beta phase and actually launch and market it. Even though it was a beta release, Fail Safer was already fully functional and it was
American Turnaround - Reinventing AT&T and GM and the Way We Do Business in the USA
13 January, 2014
After working for AT&T for 44 years, the author found himself with an invitation from the White House to become the chairman of General Motors and help it turn away from his bankruptcy path. Notwithstanding the fact that he knew nothing about cars, he took on the challenge and left after it paid in full it's loans and right before its IPO. Very interesting story, shows how GM management was blind, thinking that the crisis was the only reason why they've got where they were. Nobody there though

The author uses the concept of two minds to explain how our brain makes decision, and how we're prone to succumb to bad decision making in situations ranging from being able to see the reality in optical ill
