Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: David Heinemeier Hansson

by Scott Edward Walker on August 16th, 2010

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series entitled “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we post a short video clip of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics to help entrepreneurs succeed.

This week, we present David Heinemeier Hansson, who is the creator of the Ruby on Rails web development framework, a co-founder of 37signals and the co-author of the best-selling book Rework.  In this interesting, three-minute clip (courtesy of Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner), David discusses the problem with accepting venture capital funding.  I hope you enjoy it.  Many thanks, Scott
