The Seven Hats Of Successful Entrepreneurs

Recently I joined 1,400 students and their families at City University London, the class of 2016, as they celebrated their well-earned graduation at one of London’s most innovative academic institutions.  

As the (somewhat embarrassed but very grateful!) recipient of an honorary degree for entrepreneurial leadership to further education in technology, I was asked to address the graduands and reflect on what I wish I’d known 10 years ago, when I took my first entrepreneurial steps as co-founder of Unruly. I thought it would be fun to take a fancy hat box on stage and try on some of the different hats that I wish I’d known about when I was starting out.
