To create a successful tech company, you should start by asking yourself the following questions: Who has the problem that you’re trying to solve, why is it important to them, why can you solve it better than anyone else, and why now. Sometimes you may have the greatest solution for a problem, but you may be ahead of your time or too late. Ask yourself what it is going to take and how can you succeed in this market.

Maybe you have a great solution, but it’s too complex to build. It may not be worth the return you may get. Our current company is a good example. The problem of managing data better is not new. However, our company is an example of the right idea, at the right time, with the right technology. Data management software started 10–15 years ago, but they were too early in the market. Data was not growing very fast and there were only TBs of data. There was no cloud back then, only tape. These original companies were way ahead of their time, but 10–15 years later these same companies could have been more successful.
