Patrick Paulisch ~ German Multi-Entrepreneur!
I'm delighted to have German multi-company founder Patrick Paulisch join me again on MaximizingProgress.tv tonight! We met over a decade ago when Patrick was a Visiting Scholar at MIT. He caught the entrepreneurial bug here in Cambridge and proceeded to co-found a half-dozen ventures since then, starting with Datango and most recently Wooga, the rocketing Facebook gaming firm! We talked about his experiences and learnings, both delightful and painful, and about his latest set of companies which he's co-founded with two other "partner-founders". The three of them are together as co-owners of multiple firms even though they agree to be primarily active in only one or two. And yet they are each others advisors and coaches on their respective firms which is the intellectual and entrepreneurial glue that makes their structure work. Very interesting! From now, Patrick's heading on a round-the-world venture-vacation, so we wish him the best on that.
