One of the biggest myths in the startup world – technology or otherwise – is that entrepreneurs have it easy. The most successful companies need to start somewhere, and they often do so with limited resources, a big idea, a dedicated team and a healthy dose of opposition from critics.
In a recent interview with The Tech Blog Writer Podcast, our CEO Ellen Rubin spoke with host and Inc. contributor Neil C. Hughes about the inspiration that drives her to work with early-stage companies, and how her career turned toward the cloud industry. Ellen shared why she’s drawn to work with people that take on problems others assume are unsolvable, tips for navigating startup climates, and the previously unsolved problem that ClearSky Data aims for: deliver cloud economics and scale to primary data and make it available anytime, anywhere.
Says Hughes in his Inc. article, “Organizations are very aware that the costs and resources required to run their own data centers are making them impractical. But equally, there is a realization that there is no such thing as a one size fits all for everything. There is a good reason that 90% of businesses have adopted a hybrid model.”
Tune into the podcast to hear Ellen’s thoughts about what’s really holding enterprises back from cloud adoption, as well as:
- The next big opportunities in the cloud computing landscape;
- Why every company can stand to accelerate its hybrid IT approach;
- How to pitch a new technology idea to companies in a traditional industry; and
- The No. 1 tip for every new entrepreneur. (Hint: it involves growing your network of mentors.)
