Ep 108 'The Jump’ case study (Part 2): Paul van der Linden on expectations versus the reality of starting a tech company

Back in episode 86 we talked to Paul van der Linden, who quit his job at IBM to start his own technology company, outThought.

At the time, Paul talked about the hopes, fears and challenges of leaving the corporate life to pursue his dreams (If you missed the chat, click here ).

Almost a year later, we sit down with Paul again for Part 2 to talk about how his journey has progressed - expectations versus the reality of starting his company, which is at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence, virtual assistants and bot technology.

Paul talks about winning his first clients, the early successes, struggles and evolution of the business … as well as his own personal development throughout the process.
