"There is a massive land grab in the tech world with very large players looking to control where we will 'live' on our phones and online (think Facebook, Google, Salesforce.com, Apple). Don’t be intimidated by them; leverage them. The big boys only have so much bandwidth. Build what they need, focus on it, and let them know.

"It will be better to have an expert to partner with (or to acquire your company), than to wait until bandwidth frees up and start from scratch. The tech world is wide open--there are plenty of opportunities."
