Jonathan Siegel is a serial entrepreneur, angel investor and advisor to many cloud companies. He is the founder of 4 Internet companies: ELC Technologies (acquired by PriceGrabber’s Kamran Pourzanjani), RightCart (acquired by Buy.com), RightScale, and RightSignature. In 2010, Jonathan joined Accel Partners London before returning to San Francisco in March 2011. He has been on Amazon’s Web Services customer advisory board since 2008 and is passionate about supporting founders of early stage tech start-ups.
Jonathan will discuss the entrepreneur spirit, learning from failures, and be available for a conversation on all things Cloud. Entrepreneurs go into business knowing there's a high failure rate in front of them, but confident the statistics don't apply. Tech-entrepreneurs are a special breed -part-artist part-businessman-. Knowing where their drive comes from gives insight into team building, growth strategies, and exits. Having had an abundant series of failures and an occasional success, Jonathan will share what's he's learned.
3rd.Thurs is a monthly speaker series at the Citrix Startup Accelerator. We bring together great people and engaging content every third Thursday of the month.
