Advice was coming from all sides last week, with a packed calendar of entrepreneurship conferences and events that brought in more than 100 speakers, many from Silicon Valley, New York and other parts of the U.S. and world. But sometimes the best advice comes from our own backyard.
Jim Jensen, Ultimate Software’s vice president for strategic alliances, reminded the audience at Sup-X: The Startup Expo last week that the company, which now has 3,000+ employees and brings in more than $600 million in revenue, was once a startup too — beginning in four cubicles off Stirling Road 25 years ago. Those were the days when portable computers meant screwing door handles on the tops of the desktop computers so they could be lugged home, he said.
