What does it take to BE BOLD, to be the pioneer, to go left when everyone else is going right, to listen to the voice in your head, to follow your heart?
Silicon Valley Bank presents a conversation with Jon Fisher, Co-Founder & CEO of CrowdOptic, from its annual CEO Summit.
Jon Fisher is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, adjunct professor and analyst. Fisher co-founded and was Chief Executive Officer of Bharosa, an Oracle Corporation company, which produced the Oracle Adaptive Access Manager. In April 2008, Fisher predicted U.S. unemployment would rise to 9% by April 2009.
Serial entrepreneur and CrowdOptic CEO Jon Fisher counters the argument that entrepreneurs must "build to last" in Silicon Valley. Fisher declares that entrepreneurs should not be forced to bear the burden of high expectations and a "lifetime of pain and sacrifice."
Following the resignation of former Hewlett-Packard Chairman Ray Lane, CrowdOptic CEO Jon Fisher highlights Lane's entrepreneurial spirit to take a risk and make a big bet. Fisher worries that the reaction to Lane's missteps might discourage entrepreneurs from being able to make a big bet.
