LiadAgmon-342x342Liad Agmon is a serial entrepreneur and a big fan of Iceland, he has been in Iceland at least a couple of times. Don’t be fooled by all his success stories, he has a lot of stories on how he was able to take a really miserable situation in his company and turn it into a success. He has spoken in many conferences about his exit stories, he met with Team GreenQloud right after I joined as CEO in 2012. Paula Gould, who is a key member of the Startup Iceland organizing team is good friends with Liad and wrestled him to come back to Iceland and tell us his story. It was very interesting to hear two different stories of his 2 exits. I believe very strongly that you learn more when you fail than when you win and it was great to see Liad share the same sentiment. I am really looking forward to hearing him speak in Startup Iceland.
