Now he’s fighting a new battle as CTO of R‑Zero, the first company built from the ground up to tackle the transmission of pathogens in the COVID-​19 era.

In this podcast and vodcast for sales managers and sales leaders, Audrey, Lee and Neil discuss:

  • Differences managing at a startup vs. a large tech company
  • Balancing learning quickly and getting to market
  • How tech must support sales so they have max credibility in go to market strategy
  • Leadership who “fly to close to the sun” and mix ego with the brand launch 

"One mistakes startups make is overinvesting in platform too early. You just don’t know what your final product is going to look like."
