- How can you conduct productivity via customer validation
- The Americon Idol apporoach of founder’s vision
- Making VC funding easier using customer feedback
- How to minimize market risks while taking risks of execution
Murli Thirumale, the Co-founder and CEO of Portworx, which was recently acquired by PureStorage for $370M, was previously Co-founder and CEO of Ocarina Networks, which was acquired by Dell in 2010 and Co-founder and CEO of Net6 which was acquired by Citrix. Murli will discuss why passion is an overrated quality for a founder, and why he believes founders benefit when they listen to their customers and validate their product or service honestly. He will share his popular SdbS Method and will inspire the audience to find a more authentic – and lucrative – route to success.
