Lecture Description

A good entrepreneurial company requires a variety of people with diverse skills, says Hennessy. Though there is a natural tendency to focus on the technology side of the company, non-engineering people are just as critical as the engineering people. In addition, the success of a venture is not based solely on the skills of the technical employees, but on the ability of the team to work together.
