Welcome to Episode 22 of The VentureFizz Podcast, the flagship podcast of Boston's most trusted source for startup and tech jobs, news, and insights! Let's face it: in order for a tech ecosystem to thrive, you need people who are not only successful entrepreneurs, but also know how to pay it forward for the next generation. For the 22nd episode of our podcast, I interviewed Andy Palmer, who is the CEO & Co-Founder of Tamr in Cambridge. Andy is the definition of what it means to pay it forward. A serial successful entrepreneur in his own right, and he is also a very active angel investor with close to 60 of his own investments (not to mention being an LP in other local funds, and mentoring lots of founders along the way). In this episode, we cover topics like: -How rugby relates to startups -The details behind Vertica, a very successful company that was acquired by HP -Why you shouldn't raise capital in the early days of your company -The common mistakes entrepreneurs make when pitching an idea -And lots more! Lastly, if you like the show, please remember to subscribe to and review us on iTunes, or your podcast player of choice!
