Tommaso Di Bartolo interviewing Tom O’Malley

From an exit during high school to Fortune 500 customers.

On my mission to share with others what it takes to be an entrepreneur in the Innovation Mecca called Silicon Valley, I had the pleasure to chat with Tom O’ Malley, Founder & CEO at Convetit in Menlo Park / Palo Alto. “Because of the density of Startups here, there is more probability of serendipity” aka when someone accidently (=luck) finds something good unexpectedly … but, you need to fail and fail over again before one succeeds!

Off the record: If you like the no-BS style — you are reading the right thing by the right author, therefore make the time — kick off the journey and share this post with your network now. You are the man / woman!

Tom is an entrepreneur with an exit in his younger age during his senior high years … which was only the beginning of his entrepreneurial career. He lives in Silicon Valley is married and father of two daughters. Since Tom founded Convetit, the uber for consulting — he’s rocking Fortune 500 companies.

In a couple minutes of your time watching the video you can expect to hear / learn about:

  • How to have an exit as a senior high
  • What is an: uber for consulting
  • Why are Unicorns killing Dinosaurs
  • The Simple, Rapid, Easy — value proposition
