From Apple to Startup: Lessons Learned, and a Sneak Peek

by Steve Broback on March 2, 2014

#ChevyTweethouse Session at #SXSW – Saturday March 8, 2014 2:00pm, RSVP here.

Andy Grignon spent 11 years at Apple, leading the development for products like iChat and Dashboard. He then moved on to join a few co-workers who were selected to launch a new initiative that become later known as the iPhone. After Apple, Andy went to work with the folks at Palm where he helped start webOS.

He has now moved into the startup space where he and other former Apple alumni are working on a new platform called Eightly

In this session Robert Scoble, Startup Liaison Officer at Rackspace, will interview Andy to discuss the lessons he’s learned moving from the corporate world to the startup space, how his experience at Apple has enlightened his efforts, and a peek at the new service he plans to launch later in the year.

Learn more about Andy and his time at Apple in the nytimes.com piece “And Then Steve Said, ‘Let There Be an iPhone” written by Fred Vogelstein.

Note that Robert and Andy will be attending our Dent Conference in Sun Valley March 23-26 2014, info here.
