Ben Jackson has made a career in tech from figuring things out on his own. He got an early start with technology – tinkering around and teaching himself different coding languages – which lead to a series of IT jobs and the rest is history. Over beers at Fool’s Gold in NYC we learned how those humble beginnings were just the start of a path in entrepreneurship, how he’s evolved his role throughout, and eventually landing where he is today, helping fledgling companies make strategic decisions with his consultancy company For The Win.
What You’ll Learn:
– The challenges of evolving from print to digital at an agency in the early days of tech.
– An insiders perspective in starting a company abroad – and the circumstances that drive the decision to ultimately leave.
– Why company “politics” are important and shouldn’t be considered a bad thing.
