Should All Founders Be Required To Have A Tech Background?

Just before the tech bubble burst, back in 2000, I worked as a developer at dotcoms. Big paydays were luring all kinds of entrepreneurs into tech then, including people who had no prior experience. The company I worked at was run by someone who had a big vision, but knew almost nothing about programming or the web.

Entrepreneur, investor, future enthusiast, inventor, hacker. Lover of dogs, owls and outdoor pursuits. Best-known as the founder and CEO of Hootsuite.
