I stopped by Guy Spier’s office in Zurich this morning and had a great time, as always.
One of the advantages of living in a city like Zurich — as opposed to New York — is that it’s much easier to meet great investors or entrepreneurs informally and develop a friendship. I had met Guy in New York, but in such a huge city, attention gets diluted and many new business relationships remain superficial. I feel privileged to have become friends with Guy in Zurich, and it’s always a real pleasure to drop by his office on short notice.
When I arrived this morning, Guy was in an “experimenting with online technology” mood. We decided to do a live stream on YouTube and on Periscope at the same time. A bunch of you joined and asked questions. Here are some of Guy’s insights.
