Evan Goldberg (@NetSuite) is the cofounder and Executive Vice President of Oracle NetSuite, which has grown from a small office above a hair salon into a global organization that now works with more than 18,000 customers in 200+ countries and dependent territories.
What We Discuss with Evan Goldberg:
- Why Evan made the move from his cozy, vice presidential office at Oracle to helm his own startup in early cloud technologies.
- The important lessons Evan learned on the smaller scale of a startup that address the needs of a much larger business like Oracle NetSuite.
- What Larry Ellison and Evan understood about the potential for cloud technologies in ’99 that even the visionary Steve Jobs had trouble seeing at first.
- Why you might want to pay attention to the enthusiasm the guy in the Lexus LFA has for your product idea and implementation when you have trouble seeing over the dashboard of your Honda minivan.
