Every now and then an opportunity comes around to step outside of your day-to-day role and look at things from a different angle. Just this week, I spent an hour with somebody coming out of school to talk about all the possible job paths that all related to an IT degree; it was fun to put some of my experience to use in a different way.
Along those same lines, our own Morpheus co-founder Brian Wheeler recently stepped out of his day-to-day and was a guest on ‘The Founder Formula‘, a podcast hosted by Trace3… one of our longest-standing and best-performing channel partners. The Founder Formula brings you in—behind the curtains and inside the minds of executives at Start-ups that have traditionally only been found in Silicon Valley—and the Venture Capital Firms that fund them. Each interview will feature a transformative leader who’s behind the wheel at a fast-paced & innovative tech firm.
If you take the time to listen you might learn a bit about what makes Morpheus different than most startups. We were born out of necessity inside a transformation team that constantly was asked to improve the tech stacks at dozens of companies inside the Bertram Capital portfolio. Give it a listen and check out some of the other interesting sessions they’ve had over the years.
