And now we come to the end of our CEO dinner, when the wine kicks in, and I lose complete control of the interview.
We start by asking everyone for their mediocre super powers…and…. I’ll just let you watch the rest.
Here are our previous segments on Phablets, consolidation, fundraising, whether software companies still need salesforces, what companies these guys would run if they could, and Aaron Levie’s extreme focusing abilities.
Huge thanks to the Plumed Horse in Saratoga for the utterly delicious hospitality and to Jason Maynard, Jay Simons, Aaron Levie and Tony Zingale for being such good sports. One of the best parts about covering startups in Silicon Valley for the last decade-plus has been a million dinners like these, and I’m glad I finally got one on tape.
I have no idea who we’ll pick for our next dinner, but we’re definitely doing this again. If you have suggestions, leave them in the comments or email tips at pandodaily dot com.
